Today, the 28th Annual Bluesfest, that will rock Byron Bay and its beautiful surrounds over Easter in 2017, adds more superb artists to its growing line up.
Bluesfest 2017 will be held over the five day Easter long weekend from Thursday 13th to Monday 17th of April at its home on the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just outside of Byron Bay.
Today’s artist announcement shows that Bluesfest is on track to once again deliver a festival that enchants music lovers of all ages.
Bluesfest is building on the powerful line up of female musicians already announced, adding the supreme and Grammy award winning Mary J. Blige and Corinne Bailey Rae to the bill.
Returning to Bluesfest is rising star Michael Kiwanuka, as well as music collective Nahko and Medicine for the People. First time performances by the awe-inspiring R&B musician Gallant and Houston’s award-winning 10-piece The Suffers will have Bluesfest audiences wanting more.
Bluesfest is known to festival fans for presenting spectacular artist releases over several months, delivering up to 12 hours of music daily over the five days, across multiple undercover stages, as well as offering an abundance of food and market stalls, several bars, parking and camping on site.
The multi award-winning Bluesfest reports that ticket sales for 2017 have been ‘through the roof’, since the first announcement a few weeks ago and is urging its audience to purchase their tickets now, before further significant price rises occur and certain ticket types sell out.
With many more announcements on the agenda, Bluesfest Byron Bay will be the only place to be next Easter.
