Pistoia Blues

The biggest names in blues in the evocative setting of piazza del Duomo in Pistoia

Since 1980, Tuscan summer has been synonymous with big concerts. We’re talking of course about the month of July when Pistoia Blues returns: it’s a unique event that involves the whole historic center of the city. Serving as the backdrop to all the great music is the magnificent Piazza Duomo.


Each year the festival brings together legends from the European rock and blues scene of this type of caliber: Jimmy Page, Rory Gallagher, Brian Auger and BB King, among others. From the British blues of John Mayall to the grand sounds of Pat Metheny and John McLaughlin, to the performance of two great artists like Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, not to mention the outstanding Luther Allison, the stage has always hosted the biggest names from the international scene, who perform in what’s now become an unmissable event for music lovers.

Recently, Pistoia Blues has begun organizing other concerts, parallel to those on the main stage, becoming more of a city-wide event. Piazza Gavinana, Piazza della Sala, Loggiato San Leone and Piccolo Teatro Mauro Bolognini will become, for the occasion, ideal locations to listen to good music.
