In 2017 the legendary Sugar Blue arrived especially for the fourth edition of the festival in Bulgaria and the world-famous bluesman James Whiting with many distinctions and Grammy Award. The Blues and Jazz festival is well-known and very successful all over the world in cities such as Kansas City, Luxembourg, Galati (Romania), New York, New Orleans, Montreux and many others. In Blagoevgrad it continues to attract more and more admirers.
At the end of March, the hall of "Nikola Vaptsarov" State Theater traditionally gathered numerous audiences to welcome the participants in the festival: Big Band Blagoevgrad with the guest-soloist Vesela Morova, Johnny Bota and Bega Blues Band, Dirty Purchase, Vicky Almazido, Vasko the Patch and the Big Blues Band. A special guest at the festival was Milcho Leviev, while the headliner Sugar Blue closed the fourth edition of Blagoevgrad Blues & Jazz.
