About the festival

Cotton Blues Festival is an event created by musicians for musicians and music enthusiasts alike. The first goal behind this project is to give the Macedonian audience and the audience from neighboring countries an opportunity to experience blues music in its essential raw form.

This festival is the only acoustic blues festival in Europe, and it’s mission is to allow the people to connect with this soulful art form.

As a result of this festival, our second goal is to put Macedonia on the world map of blues music, also allowing homegrown musicians to collaborate and meet and greet with big names from the industry.

Aside from the main event (may 2020), we plan to incorporate smaller events called Backyard Sessions (working title), to promote the main event and the local artists, alongside with the sponsors.

All of the events is planned to be recorded by audio and video professionals so the organisation itself, the artists and also the sponsors can have a professional video promo material.

Cotton Blues Festival will have a very humble pricing on tickets for the festival, and all of the gathered finances will be donated to the Childrens Oncology Department in Skopje.
