Upton blues festival is a very popular festival, and probably one of the biggest free blues festivals around in UK.  Set in the beautiful Worcestershire riverside town of Upton upon Severn.  The festival celebrated its 13th anniversary – featured the Best of British Blues plus some from US and Netherlands too.

Bands and musicians played at pubs, bars and other venues throughout the town and down on the waterfront.  The event attracted many people and the town had such a great vibe, 100 gigs over the three days (18/7-20/7, 2014)!  Some of the bands which performed  included : Groovy Head, TroubleShooters, Doctors Order,The Real Raj, The SpikeDrivers, Henry’s Funeral Shoe.
