Bluesfest Unveils Daily Playing Schedule For 2020 Festival

Bluesfest 2020 is within reach and organisers have today revealed the daily playing schedule so punters can prepare for a huge Easter long weekend at Byron Bay’s Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm.

The full line-up boasts 69 world-class acts from across the globe, including the likes of Alanis Morissette, Patti Smith, Lenny Kravitz, Crowded House, Dave Matthews Band, George Benson and more, who will perform across five stages.

Morissette, who will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill at Bluesfest, has been confirmed to perform on the Friday night, joined by Brandi Carlile, Yola, The Waifs, The War & Treaty, Morcheeba, Roshani, LP and more.

Saturday night, aka “party night”, will host a slew of acts, including but not limited to Kool & The Gang, The Gipsy Kings, Dirty Honey and Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles after Australian American Music Honours makes its debut at the festival earlier that day, featuring Kasey Chambers, John Butler, Hussy Hicks, Ash Grunwald, Troy Cassar-Daley and more.

Punters can also experience a special musical created for Bluesfest by legendary R&B outfit Sensations, Ellis Hall The Clarence Bekker Band And Friends Presents Sensational! – The Ultimate Musical Journey, which will take place every day except Saturday.

And that only scratches the surface, with stacks more planned across the Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday; check out the full daily playing schedule here.


“The thrill is coming! Every year with the release of the full line-up and its accompanying playing schedule you can really feel it,” said festival director Peter Noble OAM.

“It’s palpable here at the Bluesfest office as the festival approaches its 31st line-up. The feedback is we have delivered one of our best artists bills. There will be thousands of ticket buyers attempting to fit in all the artists they want to see at Bluesfest this year. It will be a 12-hour daily marathon from noon until midnight over five stages of both headliners and the best emerging artists.

“I’m looking forward to seeing you all here in Byron Bay to celebrate with some of our favourite artists in the world. I’m really proud of this line-up, we’ve gathered some of the best names from all over the world, from all over Australia and given our true blues fans something to sing about. This is a very fulfilling line-up and I am thrilled. Let the countdown begin.”
