What is the King Biscuit Blues Festival?
It's when Delta Blues fans head on down to Helena, AR for 3 days of the best Blues in the Delta.
A.K.A The Arkansas Blues & Heritage Festival continues the annual tradition of celebrating the blues in quaint Helena, Arkansas, which is a short road trip from Memphis.
I bet you didn't know that Arkansas is a great place to catch the Blues. Many say that Arkansas, Helena to be specific, is one of the best places in the South to hear real blues music and the best time is during the King Biscuit Blues Fest, formerly known as the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival.
With an impressive lineup, camping, and a family-friendly atmosphere, this music festival is a crowd pleaser and mandatory for all Delta Blues enthusiasts.
