The UK Blues Federation believes that Blues music in the United Kingdom (UK) needs to be better represented and coordinated in order to achieve the respect and prosperity that it deserves.
Consequently in 2015, they established a pan-UK Federation to promote and support Blues in and from the UK in all its forms and styles. It is their aim to achieve the maximum recognition for UK Blues music, past, present, and future and thereby to boost the profile and prosperity of all involved with the genre in the UK, bringing those involved together to achieve this vision.

Since 2018 The UK Blues Federation has been hosting The UK Blues Awards. Our aim being to allow the industry and the public to nominate and vote for those they believe, through their work in the previous year, deserve the recognition an Award will give them.

Paul Jones (Radio 2 blues show) will host this prestigious event which, along with other star presenters also featured live performances from Award nominees.
