What is The Blues Challenge
The Belgian Blues Federation is searching for bands and/or solo artists who want to make their way to European blues stages and want to represent Belgium during the 12th edition of the European Blues Challenge (25 countries) that was organized over the past years in Berlin/Germany, Toulouse/France, Riga/Latvia, Brussels (AB), Torrita di Siena/Italy, Horsens/Denmark, Hell/Norway, Ponta Delgada/Portugal, Malmö/Sweden and Chorzów/Poland.
From all entries (deadline June 30), only eight acts will be selected. These acts are expected to be present on October 14, 2023 at De Mixx in Herselt to show the best of themselves in a live finale, in a production of the (Ge)Varenwinkel team.
An erudite jury selects the act that gets the honour to represent Belgium during the European Blues Challenge in 2024 and the International Blues Challenge in 2025 (travel and lodging costs will be at the expense of the winner).
