Bluesfest’s Expanding Australian Artist Line-Up!

Bluesfest has announced its All Australian “merged artists” line-up that includes the additional eight artists revealed last week thus taking the tally to 49 Australian artists that are confirmed to perform next Easter long weekend at Byron Events Farm Tyagarah, Byron Shire.

With more names to come this already unbeatable line-up will make for an unforgettable Bluesfest experience. A veritable dream-team of artists from around the country, all pumped to perform again at 2021 Bluesfest.

Bluesfest has worked hard with artist managers and agents to create this historical line-up. With the support of the industry the return of Bluesfest plays a significant role in heralding in the return of major live music events in this country.

Commenting on the announcement Festival Director, Peter Noble OAM says “I am deeply grateful for the support we have been shown by the industry in order to create this spectacular showcase of Australian talent. As I stated back in July; Change is the only constant and we are ready for it. If we find that the internationals can’t come, we will add more Aussies. And that is what we have done.In the meantime, we remain poised to move with the ebb and flow of this situation. Until we feel there is certainty about the borders, we will continue to list the international artists, but in the meantime, we are delighted to deliver on our promise of delivering an exceptional festival with an extraordinary All Aussie line up.”
