The Block Island Music Festival takes place the second week in June at Captain Nick’s Rock n’ Roll Bar (Block Island’s premiere nightclub and live music venue). This grassroots festival strives to push the envelope by erasing style barriers in order to create a truly unique and exciting musical atmosphere. The result is a six-day long musical gumbo where festival goers sample music performed by the most talented, “undiscovered” artists currently making music in the northeast.

In accordance with the organic nature of The Block Island Music Festival, admission is FREE of charge. The festival is a 21+ years of age and proper identification is absolutely required. Children will be admitted between the hours of 5pm-9pm ONLY under strict parental supervision. To further our commitment to providing a unique experience - the music fest barbeque pit will provide FREE food to all festival goers starting at 5pm until supplies run out for the day.
