Bluesfest is nearly here and while it’s already a huge line-up, they’ve now added an additional nine acts to the line-up.
“As Bluesfest approaches a sell out over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there will be thousands of ticket buyers attempting to fit in all the artists they want to see today as Bluesfest announces its highly anticipated playing schedule for our 30th Anniversary festival,” shares festival director Peter Noble OAM.
“It’s perhaps our most heavily booked event so far. It will be a 12-hour daily marathon from noon until midnight over five stages of both headliners and the best emerging artists. To add to this, we have announced more great artists today including Playing For Change and the winners of last year’s Busking competition Sametime.
“New Zealand’s incredible Māmā Mihirangi & The Māreikura recently delivered such a powerful performance at Folk Alliance in Montreal that most of those in attendance were crying with joy. I have only ever experienced something that strong a few times. Don’t miss out on Māmā Mihi’s unique performance. After three Glastonbury performances, Lucy Gallant will return to Bluesfest with her powerful original songs from her new album.
“I cannot believe our 30th anniversary is just around the corner. Thank you to everyone who has come over the years, I’m looking forward to seeing you all here in Byron Bay to celebrate with some of our favourite artists in the world this Easter.”
Joining Playing For Change, Sametime, Māmā Mihirangi & The Māreikura, Lucy Gallant on the line-up are Clarence Bekker Band, Ward Thomas, Glenn Cardier & The Sideshow, Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf and Nocturnal Syndrome.
