Rock the blues this September

Dan Patlantsky

Twelve years on and still going strong, The Durban International Blues Festival will again take place at The Plant, Station Drive Precinct in Durban following its successful change of venue and capacity turn out last year.

The 2017 programme is shorter than in the past as co-coordinators strive to find the perfect blend of quality and quantity which will also suit the festival goer’s pocket.

This year’s line-up includes firm favourites as well as international guest artists, Charlie Love and Dan Patlansky and his band.

Blues is not like a regular musical performance and much like its cousin Jazz- is best suited to smaller, casual and more intimate venues where the audience can interact quite personally with the performers on stage.

For this reason, The Plant remains a good choice and looks to be the home for this event for quite some time into the future.

With secure parking around the precinct, food vendors such as Renegade Kitchen and The Roast Co amongst others on site as well as the opportunity to book for dinner before the event at one of the precinct restaurants, a cash bar facility for beers and soft drinks and a few select other drinks, the evening is suitable for the family too.
