2018 Waterfront Blues Festival headliners announced

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- The 31st annual Waterfront Blues Festival is coming this summer, and while the full lineup isn't known, the headliners are confirmed. 

George Thorogood & The Destroyers, Beth Hart, The Mavericks, Marc Broussard and Curtis Salgado are among the headline acts set for the 2018 Waterfront Blues Festival.

Other acts booked for the festival include Robert Randolph & The Family Band, The Motet, Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band, Commander Cody, Larkin Poe, Ranky Tanky, Horace Trahan & the Ossun Express, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes and Johnny Rawls.

More acts will be announced soon, organizers said.

Festival passes are available beginning March 15. A basic Early Bird 4-day pass will cost $30. Complete ticket details are available on their website, WaterfrontBluesFest.com

And this year's Blues Fest will return to its original radio broadcast partner, KGON, 92.3 FM. KOIN 6 News is also a sponsor of the Waterfront Blues Festival.

As always, the Oregon Food Bank is the beneficiary of the festival's proceeds.

Since 1988, the Oregon Food Bank has produced the festival, which is a fundraiser for the food bank. Over the years, more than $10 million has been raised and 20 million pounds of food. But food bank officials decided now was the time to step back as producers and concentrate on their mission of eliminating hunger.
