Welcome to the 25th Annual Hot August Blues Festival!

This festival has withstood the test of time for a lot of reasons. It is second to none when it comes to the artists and bands that play. From the hometown locals to the charted artists, they all have one thing in common, their love of music! This is what makes the two-day festival such a fun time for all.

Great music with Kentucky Lake as a backdrop, along with wonderful food and merchandise vendors help to make this festival a must attend event for thousands each year! Like we always say, 'if you've never been you don't know what you're missing'. It's not about the music; it's not about the lake...it's all about having a good time!! Everything else is just a bonus!

Bring your coolers (no glass bottles please), lawn chairs, sunscreen & ponchos, cause the festival is held rain or shine! See y'all there!!

(Shuttle service provided to and from Kenlake Lodge and Campground and along Highway 68 to Aurora ONLY!! No exceptions!)
