About Austin Blues Festival

The origins of the festival date back to 1999, when Clifford Antone hosted the first-ever Antone’s Blues Festival at Waterloo Park as a way to showcase some of his favorite artists who were too large to play at his namesake downtown venue. The festival hosted the likes of Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, and Ray Charles during its three-year run.

Now, more than two decades later, Antone’s and Waterloo Greenway are joining forces to bring blues back to Waterloo Park with an incredible lineup of national talent performing at the 5,000-seat Moody Amphitheater. Following the performances in the park, Antone’s Nightclub will host an official aftershow featuring Rebirth Brass Band with Soul Man Sam.
