2014 King Biscuit Blues Festival Wrap-up: Rain may have partially dampened the grounds, but it didn't diminish the enthusiasm, spirit or amazing performances. Attendees enjoyed 93 acts on six different stages and 50 food, merchandise and arts & crafts vendors. With the Delta Cultural Center, the new Sonny Boy Williamson Blues Trail marker and Helena's Southern hospitality, the 2014 festival was one of the most diverse and exciting Blues experiences in the country.

Biscuit Heads: We Need Your Help Feb. 1 - March 20!

The King Biscuit Blues Festival is competing to win a share of $50,000 in the Isle of Capri's Community Aces Challenge; and all we need is your votes on Facebook. From Feb. 1 to March 20, Community Aces Challenge will be accepting votes here.

 

Virginia McDowell, Isle's president, said,"The Challenge is designed as a social media competition for nonprofit projects which will improve the quality of life of those who live and work in the communities we call home."

 

Individuals must be signed into Facebook in order to vote and they can vote once per day during the voting period.

 

"We are extremely proud of the last 29 years in transforming the King Biscuit Blues Festival into one of America's premier annual Blues music showcases," said Linda Broome, KBBF executive director. "However, new resources are  necessary every year to maintain and grow the festival. That's why your votes - starting Feb. 1 - are crucial to keep the KBBF on top."


We’re Turning 30!

On Oct. 8-10, 2015, the King Biscuit Blues Festival will celebrate its 30th birthday and we’re throwing a heck of a party. As one of the most iconic and longest running Blues festivals in the U.S., we are planning an unforgettable three days of music, camping and community in the heart of the Delta. It will be a historic event. Check back often for new details.
