Chicago Bluesfest, Complete Lineups and Muddy Waters Rolling Stones Movie

Next week is the Chicago Blues festival. It is the largest free blues fest in the world and it takes place right in the middle of the city. While you might not recognize some of the names it has been my experience that there are a lot of very pleasant surprises. It is a great place to spend the day and if you get a little hungry & thirsty there are palces set up inside the fest or if you just want to unwind for awhile there are plenty of places close by. One of our favorites is Millers Pub 134 S Wabash Ave. (312) 263-4988. It's a great old time Chicago place no blues there but good food and outstanding atmosphere.


Below is the complete lineup as well as a couple of other free blues related events taking place before the fest starts. We have provided links to videos of most of the artists.
