The annual extravaganza, which sees thousands of blues enthusiasts flock to mid Norfolk every year, will run from July 6 to 10. 

And organisers are once again inviting lesser-known bands or artists to sign up, with a view to performing during the weekend.

Applications have already been flooding in, but there is still time to try and get on the bill.

Videos of live shows can be submitted by visiting derehambluesfestival.org.uk/wanna-play before the application process closes on Monday, February 14.

Since announcing the blues festival would be returning in 2022, committee members have pledged to produce an event that is bigger and better than ever before. 

The headline act is expected to be revealed over the coming weeks.
