Asia’s largest blues festival is coming back to India for its 11th edition. Yes, you read that right! The Mahindra Blues Festival (MBF) is coming to India at Mumbai’s iconic Mehboob Studio. The native edition will be hosted on the 11th and 12th of February, 2023. MBF has been hailed as India’s blues mecca for the past ten years, drawing regular attendees from both India and throughout the globe.

Asia’s Largest Blues Festival

The Mahindra Blues Festival (MBF), Asia’s Largest Blues Festival, has always stayed true to the original major blues act. They do hone a mix of music, but nothing hampers the major act, which is why it has always received so much love. With a convergence of well-known and up-and-coming blues acts, it is regarded as one of the nation’s most significant musical landmarks.

As evidence of the festival’s appeal internationally, it is also held twice a year at Buddy Guy’s Legends club in Chicago. But the 2023 edition is unique since it will commemorate Buddy Guy’s final trip to India, making it one of the all-time greats of blues music.
