Bayfront Blues Festival kicks off Friday, an event that registers darn-near a national holiday for the local blues fans. The three-day festival features more than 30 acts – including headliners Los Lonely Boys, Canned Heat and Robert Randolph & The Family Band – for three days, alternating between two stages. The News Tribune is looking for tips from blues fans about how to have the happiest, safest and most memorable Blues Fest. Tell us about your seat markers, hydration systems and how you decide if a band is worth the walk to the acoustic tent.
