BluesFest 2015 will be held at The O2 this year – the first time the venue has hosted a blues and soul festival.

The festival will feature a number of ticketed headline shows, as well as free acts throughout the three day event from Friday, November 6 to Sunday, November 8.

Among those headlining are Jamie Cullum, Tom Jones, Van Morisson and Lisa Stansfield – so with such a good line up, you probably want to know how to get there. Here is how.


The Jubilee line is the best way to travel to the venue. Make sure to get off at the North Greenwich stop and remember the last tube to central London will be at 12.19am and to Stratford at 1.02am.


There is parking on site, but make sure you get there early to ensure a spot.

The O2 is signposted from the M25, the A2 and A20 (from the South East), and the M11 (from the North). Take the junction for Millennium Way or Edmund Halley Way.

Or just tap in the postcode - SE10 0DX - to your Sat Nav.


The 108, 129, 132, 161, 188, 422, 472 and 486 all stop at North Greenwich station. And the 188 is 24 hours to and from Waterloo station.


The MBNA Thames Clippers service to North Greenwich comes from as far west as Putney and as far east as Woolwich (at limited times).

Cable car

It may only come over from the Royal Docks, but the Emirates Air Line is certainly a more scenic way to get to the gig. If you’re travelling on the DLR as well, you can change at Royal Victoria and get to it from there.
