Blues Festival moves indoors

Published

 on 

KARON: After a night of squalls and heavy rain the organizers of the Phuket Blues Festival – which opens tonight – have decided to move the two-day event indoors, into the ballroom of the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa.

The overnight storms blew down tents set up for the festival, shredding some of them, and turned the outdoor venue into a swamp. With the skies still dark this morning, the decision was made to move the music indoors.

Organizer Andy Andersen advised blues lovers to get to the venue early, in order to get good seats, as the ballroom is smaller than the outdoor venue.

The program is as follows:

Tonight: 5:30 pm doors open; 6:30 Blue On Blue (Bangkok); 8 pm The Blues Machine (Pattaya); 9:30 pm Soi Dog Blues Band (Bangkok); 11 pm Victor Brox Blues Train (UK).

Tomorrow night: 5:30 pm doors open; 6:30 pm Groove Doctors (Phuket); 7:15 pm Big Fat Blues Band (Phuket); 8:20 pm Cannonball (Bangkok); 9:45 pm Kyla Brox (UK); 11 pm Rich Harper Blues Band (USA).

Some tickets are still available and will be on sale in the main lobby of the resort, priced at 1,000 baht for either of the two nights, 1,600 baht for both nights, and 3,000 baht for two-night VIP access, allowing holders to go backstage and meet the bands.

The festival is presented by HotelTravel.Com and the Phuket Gazette.
