Since 2005, Phuket has been hosting The Annual Blues and Rock Festival, bringing in talented performers from around the globe. The festival has continued to grow in popularity each year, allowing organizers to bring in the biggest names in blues and rock music from all over the world. Over the years the this event has drawn big name musicians such as Richard Clapton of Australia, Rich Harper and Charlie Musselwhite from the U.S.A, and numerous others from various countries. 

This year's festival will be held at a new venue, as past festivals have taken place at The Hilton Arcadia in Karon Beach, this year the fun and games will be moving to Laguna Beach Resort on the northern end of the island. The 2012 edition of Phuket's Blues Festival is set to be the largest and most exciting event to date, with a star studded lineup that has created quite a buzz around Phuket and the rest of Thailand. 

The biggest name on this years card is Chris Thomas King, who burst onto the blues scene after appearing in the 2001 film "O Brother Where Art Thou". The film brought Chris international recognition for his talents as an actor as well as a blues musician. In 2011 Chris released his new album "Antebellum Postcards", which will be available for sale at the festival. Tickets are available for purchase on the official website :
