After a lot of thought and very careful consideration by members of the NBF committee, it has been decided that Newark Blues Festival will not take place in 2017.
Considering the huge success of NBF2016, this decision has not been taken lightly. It has been reached as result of a number of factors, both personal and logistical, that mean we would be unable to stage an event this year to the standard to which everyone has become accustomed.
NBF is a not-for-profit event, organised completely by unpaid volunteers. Unfortunately, other commitments mean that the resources required to organise and stage a high-quality festival in 2017 are not available.
We hope to be back in 2018, bigger and better than ever.
