The Jerry Ricks Blues Festival was created by joining two renowned festivals: the Kastav Blues Festival and the B&D – Opatija Riviera Blues Festival, which over the last ten years have significantly contributed to the cultural and tourist offer of Kastav and the Opatija Riviera. The festival was named in memory of the great blues musician Jerry Ricks, who lived for a short period in Kastav and is also buried there. The festival takes place from 25 July until 4 August 2019 at ten different locations on the Opatija Riviera and in Kastav, and includes performances by renowned musicians from the USA, Japan and neighbouring countries. Starting on 25 July, concerts will take place in Mošćenička Draga, Brseč, Mošćenice, Ičići, Lovran, Ika, Matulji, while Kastav will host the last two days of the first edition of the Jerry Ricks Blues Festival.
