Meet The 2020 Bean Blossom Blues Fest Performers
We are all experiencing some challenging times and unchartered restrictions being placed on us throughout the nation. We are seeing people coming together to help make the supplies we need and keep each other as safe as we can.
One thing we know, our BEAN fans are resilient, and together we will get through this pandemic crisis. This year, we will gather at the BEAN in August to celebrate with friends and family and to support live music and artists who bring us joy each day.
For the past 20+ years, world-class music lovers from over 30 states have gathered at the historic Bill Monroe Music Park and Campground to meet, greet and party with legendary, award-winning, international touring artists in one of the most beautiful locations in the Midwest!
Last year was an epic year for the Bean Blossom Blues Fest. The reviews were incredible, the campground was full, and you could hear music throughout the park day and night. Bean fans continually tell us this is the best festival that they have ever attended. They can get up close and personal with each performer during their performance and have the opportunity to talk with them after their performance. It is no wonder that our BEAN was voted the #1 Music Festival in Indiana!
Every year we continue the tradition and reputation of remaining one of the more intimate outdoor festivals by selling a limited number of affordable tickets, and maintaining a smaller audience so everyone can experience each performance close to the stage while enjoying a laid back atmosphere in a wooded setting. Where else can you bring your lawn chairs, blankets, coolers, bicycles, golf carts and well-behaved dog?
The Bean Blossom Blues Festival is happening August 27-29, 2020 at Bill Monroe Music Park. There will be craft beer, food and vendors onsite. Buy your tickets and rent your golf carts online so you don't have to wait in the lines, looking forward to seeing you this year!

One of the hottest talents on the planet, supercool, Samantha can shred on a guitar, going from electric to acoustic with ease. She is bold and expressive, her vocal style is a combo of bluesy, snarled, accented growl with a dose of femininity. She can bring the crowd to their feet and has continued to be one of the best festival closers across the nation.| Saturday, August 29 - 9:30 pm
