Lichfield Arts Blues & Jazz Festival
Wednesday 18th to Sunday 22nd August 2021
We are very excited to announce that our volunteer team have been hard at work creating our 30th Lichfield Arts Blues & Jazz Festival. For Lichfield Arts, a local, independent charity organisation run mainly by volunteers, running two festivals on subsequent weekends as our first events back from lockdown is a bold statement of intent.
With the 20th FREE community festival Fuse in Beacon Park on the weekend of Friday 13th to Sunday 15th August, and then our 30th Blues & Jazz Festival a week later, we are back to what we do best…providing opportunities to artists, offering opportunities for community engagement and of course a high quality, varied programme across multiple venues.
It seems only yesterday that the idea of a Blues And Jazz festival was suggested and now 30 years later and at least 300 plus bands we still offer blues and jazz fans a varied programme of top class national musicians and our excellent regional bands to our delightful Cathedral city.
With headliners Climax Blues Band and the incredible Brass Monkeys joining us for 2021, along with Dennis Rollins, and Walsall Jazz Orchestra, we are confident that all tastes of blues and jazz will be catered for!
So come along for the whole week-end or just a day or a single concert. Simply relax and enjoy.

Our headliners offer an exciting mix of blues and jazz right in the centre of Lichfield.
Thank you to all of our supporters and sponsors, our festival team and most importantly our valued customers.
Special thanks to long standing Blues & Jazz Festival supporters Jerry Sykes and Mathew Pretty.
