Today on Wednesday 8 July, Byron Bay Bluesfest has released the largest first Artist Announcement made in the history of the festival. This highly anticipated release includes many of the artists intended for this year’s event and features a total of 50 artists including the Bluesfest Busking Competition and the debut appearance of The Australian Americana Music Honours.
New additions to the top end of the bill are International folk-stars Bon Iver, the god of Aussie rock Jimmy Barnes, festival favourite Michael Franti & Spearhead, and steaming hot off their No.1 debut on the ARIA album chart last May with “Live At The Forum” is none other than one of this country’s fastest rising stars The Teskey Brothers.
The Black Sorrows, Melbourne Ska Orchestra and an exclusive performance by Weddings Parties Anything – their first show since 2012 – are also new top-notch additions to this first announcement.
Last week’s strong start to Early Bird ticket sales clearly demonstrates people are looking forward to leaving the house so they can soak up some much-needed food for the soul. The 2021 Bluesfest promises to be a safe and full festival experience running across five stages and including all the trimmings from camping to rainbow tipis, market stalls, the busking competition, great food and the perennial warm good vibes that is Byron Bay Bluesfest.
2021 Bluesfest will be held from Thursday 1 April to Monday 5 April 2021 at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in Byron Bay, New South Wales. All ticket types and add-ons are on sale from today. Head over to the Bluesfest website for more information and to purchase your tickets before they sell out.
