We’ve had to give careful consideration to dates for next year, due to potential clashes with Memphis, on this 40-year anniversary. After consultations with everyone concerned and to ensure we put on the best show possible, the dates for the Blue Mountains Elvis Festival 2017 will be:
Thursday 3rd – Sunday 6th August 2017
