Rockgrass pioneers Hayseed Dixie to headline Ealing Blues Festival


Continuing its dedication to the diverse blues scene in the UK, Ealing Blues Festival returns on 21 – 22 July with its most ambitious line-up to date.

Leading the line-up this year will be ‘rockgrass’ pioneers HAYSEED DIXIE, leading Rolling Stones tribute act THE COUNTERFEIT STONES and rocking roots band KITTY, DAISY & LEWIS.

Founded in 1987, Ealing Blues Festival has developed in partnership with Ealing Council & The Event Umbrella to become one of the biggest blues festivals in the UK. It continues the borough’s rich musical fabric that began at the Ealing Club in 1962 where the likes of The Who, The Rolling Stones, and CREAM members Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton cut their teeth.

Ealing Blues Festival’s contribution to the scene has recently been recognised by the UK Blues Federation, who have nominated the event for Blues Based Festival of the Year.

Tickets for the festival, which has recently been nominated by UK Blues for best ‘Blues Based Festival of the Year’, are on sale now. The event will take place on 21st – 22nd July 2018 in Ealing’s iconic Walpole Park.
