With ZZ Top as headliner Skånevik Blues Festival had the biggest crowd ever the first weekend of July. Not only the mega stars from Texas contributed to this year's success. The audience could enjoy memorable concerts from artists like Bergen Blues Band, Knut Reiersrud, Trampled Under Foot, Beth Hart and Aynsley Lister. Festival boss Alf Warloe Christophersen and his crew of volunteers worked hard the whole weekend and gave artists and visitors a great blues weekend. Some logistical problems around ZZ Top's concert Friday, otherwise everything went smoothly. Once again a successful festival! (Photo: Roald Jungård).
