Festival Description

The European World of Bluegrass Festival is the highlight of a month long series of bluegrass music concerts and festivals all over Europe. As well as being a contact point for bluegrass musicians and fans from the different European countries, the EWOB Festival is also a professional trade convention of musicians, luthiers, booking agents, event promoters, and bluegrass-related businesses. The first EWOB in 1998 came about upon the initiative of the IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association).

At the annual EWOB Festival, the European Bluegrass Band Awards are decided by the musicians playing at the festival. We also have special Audience Popularity Awards, which the public enjoys participating in. The #1 European Bluegrass Band represents European bluegrass during the year after theival fest, not only in Europe, but also at the annual IBMA World of Bluegrass convention in Nashville, Tennessee. This competition is for European bands only. However, bluegrass-oriented bands from around the world are welcome to apply to perform at the EWOB Festival. You can learn more about the EWOB Festival and listen to great European bluegrass on our beautiful new website at
