The 2023 Diggle Blues festival will take place between the 15th and 18th of June 2023.
The Diggle Blues Festival weekend is a relaxed and leisurely one, with performers playing in a number of venues throughout Diggle, performance times staggered so that you can travel around the village to attend each act, and enjoy a pint or two at the same time. It’s a lovely way to explore the village and enjoy a beautiful location whilst enjoying fabulous music, food and beer.
The festival is an indoor one, though if the weather is grand then some of the performances may be moved outdoors.
The festival is a fabulous local event and although it is free, it does rely heavily on the support of the local community. There is something for everyone, and well worth a visit.
The line up for 2023 hasn’t been provided yet, this is how 2022 looked:
The festival is completely free and arranged by volunteers and is funded by charitable donations and the sale of T-shirts and memorabilia, though a small donation is always welcomed.
More details can be found at the official webpage, and up to date information can be found on the festival facebook page.
If you’ve never been before it is a wonderful, friendly and relaxing weekend, and a great opportunity to explore some lovely venues in the beautiful village of Diggle!
Cheers and beers and blues!
