The third artist announcement for Bluesfest 2021 includes such Australian musical royalty as The Church, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Living End, and more.
The 2021 Bluesfest Third Artist Announcement is a legendary list of exceptional artists who join what is already an incredible line up of Australian talent confirmed to perform next Easter on 1 to 5 April, at the beautiful green Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm located 10 minutes north of Byron Bay.
Legendary psych-rock guitar stars The Church step on to the Bluesfest stage for the very first time and headline this Third Artist Announcement.
Award winning singer-songwriter and EuroVision 2019 success story Kate Miller- Heidke will bring her touch of class, whilst punk inspired rock band The Living End with their blend of rockabilly and punk and eternal rock-stars The Angels bring their exhilarating and raw live energy to this powerful line up.
Rock royalty and bona fide legend Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks have signed on and will be pumping out the non-stop hit machine featuring songs from Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock.
Joining them are festival favourites Blue King Brown, headed up by the dynamic no-holds- barred pocket rocket Nattali Rize.
“Bluesfest is one of our favourite festivals on the planet. We’re looking forward to returning to Australian shores and bringing the full power Blue King Brown show home!” Says Nattali.
With 14 Bluesfest performances behind him, the first in 1994, Jeff Lang is a legend in his own right. Said to play the guitar with the devils in his fingers, Jeff has won three ARIA Awards and his live performances are always a guaranteed showstopper.
Adding more femme force to the bill is the return to Australia from the now Nashville based singer-songwriter Kara Grainger, whose soulful vocals and unique style of slide guitar has earned her ‘opening’ performance slots with Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal to name a few. Many in the business will be watching what this lead singer from the much-loved “Papa Lips” is doing now.
Commenting on the announcement Festival Director, Peter Noble OAM says “Look at this line up – all that talent. When it comes to musical talent Australia is an embarrassment of riches and it is a privilege to create a line up to clearly showcase that very fact.”
