Celebrating one of the most cherished musical genres of all time, Blues at the Beach features three days of free concerts on an outdoor stage. Local, regional, and nationally-recognized Blues acts share the stage for a riveting and heartfelt tribute to the sights, sounds, and soul of the American experience.
Headliners like E.G. Kight and Deborah Coleman have brought their intensity and knockout live performances to Virginia Beach. Performers who are talented writers, singers, and guitar players have appeared at the festival and enthralled Blues enthusiasts.
