The Slovak Žalman Brothers Band will open the festival's main stage with popular cover versions of blues classics as well as original numbers, and will be followed by the two-member acoustic-electric group Second Band, whose repertoire includes folk-blues, country and rock, with lyrics all in English.
The stage will then welcome the leading Slovak female singer Silvia Josifoska, who sings blues, jazz, rock and pop. Josifoska and her Band will be relieved by the Czech electric guitar band Kaderus Blues.
Next will be Slovak bands Blues Mother In Law (which covers the classic musicians like Muddy Waters and Roger Mayall) and Jozef Barina & The Meditating Four (one of the oldest Slovak blues bands). Some Hungarian flavour will then be added to the mix when the Blues Fools, featuring harmonica player Matyas Pribojszki, perform the final act of the main stage.
The small stage will see: the Jingo' Blues Yard featuring singer Dušan Janďourek and his "Fine Resophonic" guitar; Juraj Turtev, guitarist and singer of Bluesweiser; and the acoustic Dura & The Blues Club; singer and guitarist Peter "Bonzo" Radványi from Blues Mother-In-Law; jazz and blues band S.R.O.; and acoustic blues band Peter Csonka & the A Band.
