The festival is tagged with three international awards and belongs to the biggest and most reputated festivals in Europe.
Every year up to 12.000 visitors are celebrating the high class program and the musicians coming from all over the world.
The festival is located at the historic market square of Eutin – a very special and unique place.
When the concerts on the market square are over, the “Brauhaus”, across from the stage, is the place to be for club concerts and sessions on the first three nights.
Exhibitions with the works of international well known painters and photographers and some smaller events are completing the program.
A unique fact is the free admission for everybody on the market square. Another unique fact is, that artists from the countries around the Baltic Sea are heavily featured – that’s special even for Germany and Europe.
Our latest plans (which we hope to be able to implement) with one piece of bad news and one piece of GOOD news:
The bad news first:
Unfortunately we have to cancel the
8th Hamburg Blues Nights, 29 + 30 October 2021.
We hoped until the end that we would be able to realise the event …
Unfortunately, Hamburg makes it impossible for us to hold the festival in a halfway “reasonable” framework. In any case, it would require a large amount of staff, which we cannot provide, and the financing would not be possible!
aher, unfortunately, we have to cancel.
Now for the GOOD news:
Things are looking good for the Challenge & Awards – however, we are moving the event from the Brauhaus (indoor) to the Eutiner Marktplatz (open-air) (in cooperation with the Förderverein Eutiner Blues e.V.). Unlike open air, indoor makes no sense because of the Corona regulations.
Especially good for you: admission is free here, but donations are very welcome.
Anticipated condition for entry is the: 3-G rule (either, vaccinated, recovered or tested). A testing station is only about 200m away. Please let all blues friends you know know, so that the whole thing will be a success!!!
