Following the kind invitation of Boris Hrepic Hrepa, Director of Thrill Blues Festival in Croatia, our new Board member Dave Raven will visit the festival and promote the EBU over there. Trilj is a small city nearby Split, close to the Cetina river and the host town of the first Thrill Blues Festival in mid-July. This is the first time ever that the Cetinska Krajina Region holds a blues festival. The headliner is Eric Sardinas and Big Motor, and other blues artists playing are Light Under The Black Mountain, Sunnysiders, Hal, Ozone and Dbluz. Lot of activities will be organized: concerts, blues workshop for children, degustation of traditional dishes of Trilj and famous rafting on the Cetina River. Many tourists from Central Dalmatia will come to relax with the expected good weather and enjoy the sounds of blues. The festival Director Boris Hrepić Hrepa is the President of Croatian Blues Forces and, naturally, a member of the European Blues Union. His own band, Sunnysiders, was the first Croatian blues band to reach the semi-finals at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
