Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Ann Arbor Blues Festival will “Make Ann Arbor Gyrate Again.” Regarded as the first “electric” blues festival in North America, the Blues Fest has brought together iconic musicians, from the likes of Miles Davis and Etta James, since 1969. This year’s three-day lineup features slightly lesser-known but still well-loved local favorites such as “The Voice” contestant Laith Al-Saadi and Ann Arbor Music Center founder Alex Johnson. The Fest aims to keep growing in order to “restore the Ann Arbor Blues Festival to its rightful place in the pantheon of Blues history.”

Food and drink will be available for purchase
