Kicking off on Tuesday in high gear with Tedeschi Trucks Band with special guest Mavis Staples, followed by a set from Bobby Womack, a fearsome Bluesfest line-up piles up with sets from Van Morrison and Gregory Porter (Wed), Robert Plant's Sensational Space Shifters (Thur), plus closing night all-star tributes to Bobby Bland and Ronnie Wood with Mick Taylor bowing at the waist to Jimmy Reed.

Alongside the night-time highlights, a £10 strolling ticket gets you to intimate daytime sessions and Q&As with Dr Feelgood, Georgie Fame, Matt Schofield, Marcus Bonfanti, Liane Carroll and more.
