Blues music on Wilhelminaplein
The Bluesplein Festival gives up-and-coming acts the opportunity to showcase their music to audiences in an intimate setting.
The organisers at Cafe Wilhelmina have an ear for talent and work to programme names that they believe will be making an impact on the blues scene in the years to come.
This year is no different, with the likes of The Tightropes, Lightnin' Guy, Texas Radio, Bullfrog Tattoo and The Eminent Stars all taking the outdoor stage.

Bluesplein line-up & times
› The Tightropes | 2.30pm. This group recently made the jump to go pro and have played more than 150 shows, mixing elements of jazz, hard rock, classic and punk.
› Lightnin' Guy | 4pm. Hailing from Belgium, this group plays genuine "foot stompin' blues and rock music."
› Texas Radio | 5.45pm. Mix a little Tom Waits, a bit of Allman Brothers and a spoonful of The Doors and you'll have Texas Radio.
› Bullfrog Tattoo | 7.30pm. This Rory Gallagher tribute band's pure and authentic sound rivals the real thing.
› The Eminent Stars | 9.45pm. A band making some international noise, the group's debut LP hit number four on the vinyl charts in Japan and they have also been receiving attention from the BBC and Radio 6.
