The Chicago Blues Festival begins this Friday, June 7th at Millennium Park. Blues Hall of Fame member, Bobby Rush will headline the festival on opening day. The GRAMMY® Award-winning artist was named by Rolling Stone "The King of the Chitlin' Circuit" for his vigorous touring schedule and energetic show.

Some of Saturday’s artists include the award-winning and legendary soul artist Bettye LaVette, Don Bryant, Latimore, and many more!

Wrap up this energetic blues experience on Sunday with Ruthie Foster, and a special tribute set for the late Mike Ledbetter by The CONNECTION with Mike Welch & Friends.
