Hot August Blues Festival


Who in their right mind would ever dream of throwing a blues festival during the hottest part of summer? Why, the folks in Hardin Kentucky, of course! This year marks the 19th anniversary of the Hot August Blues Festival on the banks of Kentucky Lake at the KenLake amphitheater. The festival features many regional favorites as well as performers from all across the US and beyond. Last year, the bluesfest was selected as one of the state's top ten summer events by the Kentucky Tourism Council. If you're a blues fan, mark your calendar for the weekend of August 22nd and 23rd for a boogie style roadtrip to western Kentucky.

Prices are quite reasonable at 12 bucks for Friday, 17 for Saturday and a special combo price of $25 for both days. Gates open at 4PM on Friday and 10AM on Saturday. This year's headliners include the hot-to-trot Shawn Kellerman on Saturday evening and crowd favorite Lew Jetton and 61 South on Friday night. Tickets are available online but going fast.
