The Bayfront Blues Festival is one of the Midwest's largest annual outdoor music events.
Nearly 20,000 blues music fans from around the world will set up their lawn chairs in the Bayfront Festival Park this weekend.
Thirty different musical acts are split between the main stage and acoustic stage. The Festival started out as a one day event and 29 years later, three days are devoted to listening, playing and appreciating the blues.
Blues Festival Media Director Cyndee Parsons said this genre of music has something for everyone.
"There's rock n' roll, there's gospel, there's funk, there's southern blues," Parsons said. "It's all over the place and that's one of the reasons why I think it's so popular because it's different music all day, so it would appeal to anyone."
Doors open again on Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 a.m. Day pass tickets can be purchased for $50 at the gate.
