Mahindra Blues Festival

Mumbai, is poised to host the Mahindra Blues Festival (MBF) at the iconic Mehboob Studio on February 10th and 11th, 2024. This marks the festival's 12th-year celebration, solidifying its status as a cornerstone in Asia's blues landscape and the nurturing ground for India's blues movement.

Mahindra has been a supporter of arts, music and culture and has been at the forefront of building deep, meaningful connections with communities in India and around the world through these artistic endeavours and shared human experiences.

Over its storied history, the Mahindra Blues Festival has been a stage for global blues legends and a beacon for enthusiasts worldwide. Regular attendees have been treated to performances by greats such as Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Taj Mahal, Charlie Musselwhite, Jimmie Vaughan, Billy Gibbons, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Johnny Lang, Beth Hart, Ana Popovic, Matt Schofield, Shemekia Copeland, along with a diverse roster of artists including Charlie “Kingfish” Ingram, Arinojoy Sarkar, Ivan Singh, and many more. Adding to its global appeal, the festival is also held biannually in Chicago at Buddy Guy’s Legends Club.

As we anticipate the 2024 line-up, the festival will continue its tradition of showcasing a dynamic mix of international stars and homegrown heroes, further cementing its status as a pivotal platform in the blues world. Echoing the reverence for the genre's icons, the festival's stages, including the 'Polka Dot Parlour' and the 'Soul Strat Saloon', will pay homage to legends and honor the contributions of Indian blues-rock stalwarts. The Mahindra Blues Band Hunt will also be soon announced, further enriching the fabric of the festival, spotlighting nascent talent on the garden stage, a testament to the genre's evolving narrative.

The Mahindra Blues Festival transcends the auditory experience, offering a slice of gastronomy with specially styled food and beverages, a comfortable den with a viewing screen for a more relaxed experience, and exclusive merchandise and record stalls for attendees to take home a piece of the festival. Each element contributing to the mosaic of the blues experience.

Jay Shah, Vice President - Cultural Outreach, Mahindra Group, reflects, "Mahindra is a name synonymous with nurturing arts, culture, and community, and continues to fuel India’s blues passion. The Mahindra Blues Festival is more than a convergence of musical talent; it's a cultural odyssey that pays homage to the rich tapestry of blues music worldwide. As we step into our twelfth year, we're honored to continue fostering this deep-rooted connection among blues enthusiasts worldwide.”

The Mahindra Blues Festival comes back for its twelfth time in February 2024 at Mumbai's famous Mehboob Studio on the 10th & 11th of February.
