What people are saying about Worthing Blues Festival

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worthing's own Blues Festival a qualified success Having waited a very long time for an event like this, I was more than pleased to find a first class event on my doorstep - so to speak. I bought tickets with friends and eagerly awaited the day. Some initial observations were that signage could have been considerably improved. On arriving by public transport I was unable to find a suitable entrance to the venue and walked for about 20 minutes around the not inconsiderable campus boundary before finding a way in. Not a single sign indicated that this was even the correct venue when I first arrived and I began to despair. Once inside most of my misgivings disappeared. Although the auditorium with its cafe style layout looked as though it had been neatly transported from the late 1960's (complete with glitter ball), the quality of the musical acts was apparent. From the solo acoustic Blues of Mike Ross through to the Chicago Blues of Catfish via the best acoustic duo in the UK, Dave Kelly and Paul Jones, there was little to disappoint. Some minor technical issues caused delays as the day wore on but these were ameliorated by some slick switching between the two stages. It was a long day (12 hours) with sparse consideration given to the inner needs of the punters. A well stocked and cheap bar is one thing but some further thought should have been given to supplying a wider choice of food - burgers and hot-dogs don't really amount to much over that length of time! I would gladly attend a second such event if some of these issues could be addressed. Phil Duckett has done a good job of organizing the acts and getting a suitably sized venue - I'm just not sure that this was the correct one. With a little more attention to the festival goers needs this could have been a great day out. With some changes, long may it continue!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good day out The standard of the bands was better than we expected, the sound was good and the layout comfortable for a full day event. The weather was good so a bit more of a gap between acts would have allowed some time for a stroll in the grounds of the college. The catering was the low point of the day and would have been improved with more variety (burger for lunch and burger for dinner was what was offered)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthing Blues - Well Worthwhile Very impressive event given that it was the inaugural festival. All the artists were of a high standard and although they were all blues acts (obviously!) there was plenty of variety between the main and acoustic stages. The sound was spot-on. Only (very minor) gripes - the selection of food and drink was very limited (a choice of 2 or 3 real ales would have gone down a treat in preference to London Pride); the venue felt (and smelled) a bit like a gym, with a wooden floor which vibrated underfoot any time someone walked nearby or started tapping their foot; and the venue was a bit out of the way (we came from Brighton by train and it was a good half hour walk to and from the station). Overall though, a fantastic event - well done to all concerned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fab to see artists that I have not seen before, especially Billy Branch from the USA. A well run event, which needs a few tiny tweaks, but being the first such Worthing festival, very good. Not enough choice of food available, but you could take your own to cover that problem. Bar was a little overpriced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb festival My wife and I really enjoyed the music, and the variety of styles. Bought a load of CDs and have not stopped playing them since we came home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worthings First Blues won't be the last, we trust With over 11hrs of continuous music, to suit every taste, Worthings 1st venture into the Blues Festival field was an unqualified success. Congratulations and thanks to the organisers and the artists, many of whom travelled significant distances. It is a shame this festival was not supported a little better, but the enthusiastic gather made sure that guests such as Paul Jones, Dave Kelly and Billy Branch (legends) and Stevie Nimmo, Giles Robson Band and others received warm welcomes. Acoustics were good, despite a few technical glitches. Perhaps next year an outdoor event could be considered.
