Keb' Mo' blows away Blue Balls Festival

Events// Entertainment// Art & Culture // July 26, 2016

Blue Balls Festival, the yearly music and arts festival in Lucerne, is on now! It runs from Friday July 22 through Saturday July 30. Think of it as a smaller scale Montreux Jazz, with an equally stunning lake view and an impressive lineup. Plus, the beautiful and modern KKL is a lovely venue to watch shows in.

Tip: Make sure to pop up to the KKL's roof terrace for an open air cocktail, a peek at the video art installations, and an awesome view of the festival courtyard down below.

We got the chance to check out two amazing shows, twin sister duo Ibeyi on Friday night and soulful Rhythm and Blues musician Keb' Mo' on Saturday.

Keb' Mo' is an American Blues musician, a 3 time Grammy winner and a badass guitarist and songwriter. He played two encores in Lucerne to a crowd that wanted even more! WRS caught up with him backstage before the show. Listen to the interview below.

Tip: There's more to see than the KKL! Live paintings, bands and DJs continue at the Schweizerhof and around the lake.

For photos from the show and the festival, check out the WRS instagram feed.

You still have several days of music to catch live in Lucerne. Coming up still this week:

Vintage Trouble: July 26 (Keb' Mo's recommendation!)

Seal: July 27

Laura Mvula: July 30

And for those who missed the shows last weekend...
