Billtown Blues Association, BBA, plans are well underway for the 32nd Annual Billtown Blues festival, scheduled for the three-day celebration of American Roots Music, starting June 10th, through June 12th at the Lycoming County Fairgrounds in Hughesville. Those camping on site for the weekend are welcome to enter the grounds on Thursday afternoon. The music gate will officially open at 5pm on Friday June 10th with a 6pm kick off.

All performing artists are confirmed and will be randomly announced over the next few weeks. The first announced artist is the award winning Alligator Records recording artists, the Cash Box Kings, a Chicago based five piece group lead by blues belter Oscar Wilson and harm-master Joe Nostek. The Cash Box Kings will close the Festival on Sunday evening with a 4:30p show time.

The festival will feature a diverse palette of blues styles, instrumentation, and a mix of exciting “up and comers” as well as honored blues veterans. The mix will also include local and regional artists who will share the event with nationally recognized recording and touring artists.

Planners are adhering to their popular and successful pre-covid format featuring on site camping, three days of music, and an array of craft and food vendors. The event offers free parking on the festival grounds and complimentary bus transport from Williamsport to and from the Festival grounds each day. The BBA is also pleased to continue offering complimentary access for children under 16.

All Festival information is available at www.billtownblues.org. They encourage frequent visits as information will be updated and changed often.
