Mahindra Blues Festival

The Mahindra Blues Festival, Asia's largest blues music festival, will return to India for its eleventh native edition on February 11 and 12, 2023, at Mumbai's iconic Mehboob Studio.

MBF has been celebrated as India’s blues mecca, attracting regular attendees from India and around the world. It is considered one of the country’s most important musical landmarks, offering a confluence of established and rising blues acts. The festival is also held twice a year in Chicago at Buddy Guys Legends club, demonstrating its worldwide appeal.

The 2023 edition is special, for it will honor the final Indian tour of one of blues music’s all time greats, Buddy Guy, whose dramatic, eye-catching smile with a polka-dot Strat still captivates many. On stage, the 85-year-old bonafide legend will perform with prominent Indian and international musicians, including Arinjoy Sarkar and the Arinjoy Trio, Ivan Singh, Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram, and Taj Mahal, creating soulful compositions that will keep the crowd moving well into the night. This melodic circus will be accompanied by a festive vibe across Mehboob Studio's stages, courtyard, and garden, plus world-class food courts and malts, making it an unparalleled feast.

Jay Shah, Vice President, Cultural Outreach, Mahindra Group “As a genre, the fundamental quality of blues music is its ability to encourage diversity—a quality that resonates across geographic regions, ages, genders and thoughts. We as a company believe deeply in the benefits of a pluralistic culture which the Blues embody fully. Along with our very loyal audience, we too look forward to a couple of days of outstanding music and unparallel showmanship in a world class ambience at the iconic Mehboob Studios. It is no wonder then that the response each year to the Mahindra Blues Festival is nothing short of remarkable; it has a unique ability to bring people together in ways that no other can."

VG Jairam, Founder, Hyperlink Brand Solutions said, "The Mahindra Blues is just not another festival but it’s a cultural movement that has grown over the last 11 years and is one of the most authentic voices for the blues genre not only in India but worldwide. The Blues definitely live here and we are super excited to be part of Buddy Guy’s Final Worldwide farewell tour."
