NESCOPECK — Briggs Farm Blues Festival is looking toward its 20th anniversary celebration in July and early birds can grab tickets starting this Friday.

At 12:01 a.m. Oct. 15, tickets for the 4-day festival go on sale at BriggsFarm.com. One-day passes for July 7 or 8 are $25 while blues aficionados can attend both days for $40 and add the Sunday gospel session for an extra $55 (or $20 by itself). Camping is available at the 88 Old Berwick Highway, Nescopeck venue at $85 for three days or $110 for four (includes July 6 night performance exclusive to campers).

After adding the Thursday night early entry camping and music event last year, the festival is further expanding their camping options this year by adding the Premium Reserved Camping Site option, giving campers locations closest to the music for $250 (tents only) or $300 (tents or one RV).

The festival’s lineup is still taking shape, but fans can visit BriggsFarm.com/History to vote for their favorite acts from previous years. Voting will be taken into account when acts are picked for Briggs Farm Blues Festival 2017.
