The European Blues Union  has successfully organized four consecutive European Blues Challenge (EBC) competitions which took place in Berlin, Germany (2011 and 2012), Toulouse, France (2013), followed by Riga, Latvia, the European Capital of Culture in 2014.

The EBC weekend contest features some 20 bands and/or solo acts, each representing their country, competing for the title of the best European Blues act. The prizes for the award-winning contestants include invitations to perform at some of the major blues festivals around Europe. A large number of friends and fans customarily travel from all over Europe in support of the artists hailing from their country. Each participating country organizes a national contest or initiates an alternative selection process to determine their representative for the EBC.

Brussels is truly honoured to have been chosen by the European Blues Union to host the 5th European Blues Challenge. This jubilee competition – organized by the Brussels Blues Society in cooperation with the Brussels Capital Region – will take place on March 13 and 14, 2015 at the Ancienne Belgique theatre. Ten countries are performing on Friday, the other ten on Saturday, followed by the announcement of the winner.

Mijn god, wat een vervelende bende telelenzen! Ik herhaal, mijn god wat een vervelende bende telelenzen! Maar waarlijk genoten van noten en zang, veel noten veel zang noot en zang universele 'pleister' alom (heerlijke zucht blaast ze) ('de winnaar' niet echt van belang, maar aub nodig ze zeker eens uit in de Club de mannen/vrouw! uit Engeland en Nederland, nondeju, spetter de spat, het was me wat, kiekebiche all over mijn lijf ! ben benieuwd voor vanavond ...) Lieve groet, Griet
Any Way
Schitterende avond met zeer gevarieerde blues van de bovenste plank! Ideaal om nieuwe revelaties te ontdekken samen met een zeer kleurrijk publiek uit alle uithoeken van Europa. Blues is the way of life!
