Mahindra Blues Festival Returns For Its 12th Edition

The festival will be held at Mehboob Studio in Mumbai on 10 and 11 February 2024


At Mumbai's Mehboob Studio on 10 and 11 February 2024, celebrating its 12th year, the Mahindra Blues Festival (MBF), promises a blend of legendary and fresh blues talent from across the globe.

The Mahindra Blues Festival has been a stage for global blues legends and a beacon for enthusiasts worldwide. Regular attendees have been treated to performances by greats such as Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Charlie Musselwhite, Jimmie Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Johnny Lang, Beth Hart, Ana Popovic, Matt Schofield, Shemekia Copeland, along with a diverse roster of artists including Charlie “Kingfish” Ingram, Arinojoy Sarkar, Ivan Singh, and many more. Adding to its global appeal, the festival is also held biannually in Chicago at Buddy Guy’s Legends Club.

As we anticipate the 2024 line-up, the festival will continue its tradition of showcasing a mix of international and homegrown artists. The festival's stages, including the 'Polka Dot Parlour' and the 'Soul Strat Saloon', will pay homage to blues veterans and honour the contributions of Indian blues-rock stalwarts. The Mahindra Blues Band Hunt will also be unveiled soon.

The festival will also feature specially styled food and beverages, a den with a viewing screen, and exclusive merchandise and record stalls for attendees to take home a piece of the festival.

Jay Shah, Vice President - Cultural Outreach, Mahindra Group, reflects, "Mahindra is a name synonymous with nurturing arts, culture, and community, and continues to fuel India’s blues passion. The Mahindra Blues Festival is more than a convergence of musical talent; it's a cultural odyssey that pays homage to the rich tapestry of blues music worldwide. As we step into our twelfth year, we're honoured to continue fostering this deep-rooted connection among blues enthusiasts worldwide.”
