(MEMPHIS, TN) – Here we are in 2020 and your faithful Blues Festival Guide is once again a media sponsor of the International Blues Challenge to be held in Memphis, TN on January 28- February 1. We help promote this prestigious event to blues fans around the world. The IBC’s are super fun, informative and significant. If you are a blues fan, put it on your bucket list! Hundreds of bands will compete along Beale Street… it’s a not-to-be-missed sight and a sound to behold. Not only are you in the heart of the Delta, but you’ll discover so many truly talented artists that have converged from literally around the globe. The streets bustle with excitement and anticipation, plus there’s workshops, special showcase and jams galore as well.

The Blues Festival Guide will meet-and-greet all the competing band members during band orientation. This year it will be held at the Tin Roof on Wednesday January 29. We’ll hand out Blues Festival Guide magazines (Bobby Rush calls them “Your roadmap to everything Blues”) and some colorful Mardi Gras beads. Don’t forget to drop your business card with us to enter our own mini-contest.
