Now entering its twelfth year, the 2022 San Diego Blues Festival is back for another year at the Embarcadero Marina Park North (behind Seaport Village).


  • WHEN: Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022

  • WHERE: Embarcadero Marina Park North

  • TIME: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    (VIP ticketholders will be allowed early entry into the venue starting at 10:30 a.m.)

This year’s 2022 lineup features returning headliner Billy F Gibbons with amazing national and local acts including: Southern Avenue, Phantom Blues Band with Curtis Salgado, Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials, Eddie 9v, Memphissippi Sounds, Ben Powell and the Taryn Donath Duo.

The event lives up to its mission to provide great blues at an affordable price while raising food and funds to support the fight against hunger in our community.

With names such as Larkin Poe, Mavis Staples, Charlie Musselwhite, James Cotton, Billy F Gibbons, Los Lobos, Eric Burdon & the Animals, Elvin Bishop and Booker T. Jones, no fewer than 10 members of the Blues Hall of Fame and five members of the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame have performed on our stage.

This festival has generated more than $1 million in funds for the San Diego Food Bank’s critical hunger-relief programs, which are currently serving nearly half-a-million people throughout San Diego County every month. In addition, Food Bank volunteers have collected more than 15 tons of donated nonperishable, shelf-stable food items at the front gate thanks to the generosity of festival attendees. By attending this event, you become part of the solution to help end hunger in the region.
