It’s the world-renowned event in one of the Australia’s most beautiful locations, that sees music lovers and top-notch artists flock to our shores every year.

And now, Byron Bay Bluesfest has secured another stellar line up of local and international artists that will ensure three days of music and magic!

Promising “some big superstars, some of which have never played Bluesfest before,” the festival is determined to upstage last year’s line-up (no mean feat considering Bob Dylan, BB King, Grace Jones, George Clinton and Elvis Costello were on the bill) - and they’ve certainly delivered! The eagerly anticipated first announcement has been released which sees The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Earth Wind & Fire, The Pogues, John Butler Trio and My Morning Jacket all fronting the bill.

Held over three days with five stages and over 200 performances, Bluesfest will take place from Thursday April 5 until Monday April 9 at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just outside of Byron Bay.
