Holland International Blues Festival in Grolloo, The Netherlands

9 -11 June 2022

Holland International Blues Festival is a relative newcomer to the festival scene, although Grolloo has a long history with blues.

In 2016, the first edition of the Holland International Blues Festival took place.

The village Grolloo is where the now legendary Cuby & the Blizzards come from, and it’s now home to this international blues festival.

It aims to position itself as a leading festival for the blues genre, where the masters of the game and new talent alike can showcase their skills to the world.

You’ll find the festival site in the heart of Grolloo, behind Cafe Restaurant Hofsteenge.
