Weekly Music Lineup – 8/5/21

Musikfest is back, live and in person, after a one year absence. Bethlehem will be rocking for the next 10 days and, to list all 500+ free acts along with the national acts would take more time and space than I have.

I’ll focus on everything that is not Musikfest here.

The Blueberry Festival is Back with Live Music and Much More !

Last year saw changes to the way many things were done. The Blueberry Festival as we know it was one of the many local events that felt the effects of the pandemic. As we move closer and closer to what was “normal”, the 34th annual Blueberry Festival is back in full force. There are many things to see and do at the festival this year. You’ll find local craft beers, wines and spirits in the Brewery Tasting Tent. Your $25 ticket gains you admission to the festival, a souvenir tasting glass and 5 tastings (advance sales – day of tickets get you 4 tastings). You can also purchase your favorites separately. There will also be pie-eating contests, children’s activities, a dessert tent, crafts and much, much more. And, of course, live music on two different stages throughout the day both days. As you may have guessed by now, I’m here to talk about the music.

There will be live performances from many local artists on both stages throughout the weekend and Saturday’s performances will be capped with the Blueberry Jam Acoustic Open Mic presented by Voices of the Valley and hosted by myself at 5pm on the Brewery Stage. Registration for the open mic is still open but, there are a limited number of spots available. You can register at rpaganomusic@gmail.com or through messenger at https://www.facebook.com/lvvoicesofthevalley. Here’s your complete music lineup:
