Top Russian blues musicians have joined the movement for the celebration of the International Day of Blues. A target date for the IBMD inauguration has been set for August 3rd of 2013. After consulting the FB petition group with over 12,000 members as well as top music industry officials, Blues music organizations, educators and various international institutions, we have arrived at a consensus to establish an annual International Blues Music day during the first weekend in August beginning in of 2013. The formula for the annual advertised date will be the first Saturday in August beginning with the inaugural IBMD events on August 3, 2013.
On this occasion was held small festival in Moscow, which brought together the best blues performers. The festival was organized by one of the best blues clubs in Russia, Music Town.
