Deep Blues Festival is a fan-driven and supported festival, and we appreciate every donation that helps us pull it together. Your contribution goes towards securing the acts you want to see, putting them up, and showing them good ol’ fashioned southern hospitality during their stay.

But don’t think it’s just about the musicians! Becoming a benefactor has it’s perks too.

  • As a benefactor, you get first dibs on booking accommodation at the Shack Up Inn as of March 1, 2018.  Don’t miss out on staying at one of the world’s coolest places to lay your head, not to mention that you’ll be right in the heart of the action.
  • We host a Benefactors’ Ball to show you our appreciation of your support. This party is exclusively for Deep Blues Festival Benefactors, with music, food, beverages, and bucketloads of thanks.

You can purchase your Benefactors pass now in our shop, to get us started in putting the pieces in place to create a weekend not to be forgotten. As we get rolling, we’ll make lineup announcements and get the word out there that there is a party brewing at the Crossroads!

Whether you’re a return visitor, or a first-timer, it’s never too early to plan your trip to Clarksdale, MS, for some real, deep blues! Lock it in with a Benefactor’s pass, and start plotting your path to the crossroads for a full weekend of good music, good people on the adventure of the year. There is so much in store for you, from festival fun to soaking up the history of the region, there is plenty to see and do. Free daytime music on several stages in downtown Clarksdale, and at Shacksdale – right across the road from the Shack Up Inn.  Nighttime shows take place at the New Roxy and the Shack Up Inn on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, plus Sunday afternoon at the Shacks.  See y’all in October!

Weekend passes go on sale March 1, 2018.

Weekend passes are $75 and allow entry to the nighttime shows at the New Roxy and the Shack Up Inn.


Benefactors passes do not include a weekend ticket.
