The 2020 Big Blues Bender Has Been Rescheduled to 2021

Dear Bender Friends and Family,

It is with a very heavy heart that we must announce the rescheduling of the 7th Annual Big Blues Bender. Despite our best efforts, there is no path forward that adequately ensures the health and safety of our guests while also providing a world-class “Bender Experience” that meets our standards. We are saddened to wait another year to once again experience the joy of the Bender with you all, but we’re hopeful that the time in between will produce solutions that will make us safer when we meet again.

The Bender will return, September 9-12, 2021, at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. We are very happy to announce that 98% of artists from the 2020 lineup have agreed to join us in 2021!

Reservation holders: All existing 2020 Big Blues Bender reservations will be converted to 2021 reservations. If you intend to join us in 2021, no further action is necessary. All of your reservation details (package, add-ons, upgrades, extra nights, HART Tickets, etc.) remain exactly the same, with all dates moved forward one year.

All remaining 2021 Inventory will go back on sale at some point in the future. Please note, there will be a price increase on all 2021 Bender packages and add-ons. This DOES NOT apply to 2020 Reservation holders that are deferred to 2021. Your price will not change! Your support is incredibly important to us, and the funds you have paid towards your package are fundamental in helping us stay afloat through these difficult times. To all of you who leave your reservation in place, we can not thank you enough.

The Bender is more than anyone of us. It is the sum of all of us. In time and with patience, the Bender will once again be upon us. Until then, we hope that every one of you stays healthy and safe. Our love for music and each other will carry us until we are together again.

Best regards, Team Bender
