The world’s biggest indoor blues festival returns to Katowice for the 32nd time this October, and this year’s lineup ensures that music fans can expect some great guitar playing.

Just 20 Polish bands and 200 fans went to the first ever festival back in 1981, but since then the event has grown in to a major international success, with artists, from across the globe descending on the city every year.

This year’s standout performers include five-time Grammy winners the Robert Cray Band, who will be performing classic hits as well songs from the new album “Nothin But Love.” Led by front man Robert Cray, the group has performed alongside legendary blues player Eric Clapton and singer Tina Turner, among others, during its 35-year career.

Other artists set to grace the stages include blues-rock band Eric Sardinas & Big Motor and blues-swing-jazz group Davina and the Vagabonds, who are fronted by classically trained pianist Davina Sowers.
