Foo Fighters, inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2021, drew one of the largest crowds in Bluesfest history when they played the 2018 event.

The band was such a draw that organizers shut down metal detectors to hasten the influx of a sold-out crowd of more than 30,000.

Festival veteran Weezer played at the Bluesfest in 2010 and 2013.
