BLUESFEST about

BLUESFEST, Australia’s multi-award winning and internationally renowned festival held every Easter at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm – 15 mins North of Byron Bay (NSW).

BLUESFEST History

The East Coast Blues Festival began in 1990 at the Arts Factory in Byron Bay, New South Wales. It quickly became known as “Byron Bay Bluesfest” and “The Byron Bay Festival” and is now known as “Bluesfest”. At a time when the Maleny Folk Festival (later to be known as the Woodford folk Festival) was only just beginning and festivals such as Big Day Out and Womadelaide did not exist, the Bluesfest pioneered the presentation of blues music in Australia.

BLUESFEST Blues Music Festival held over Easter long weekend

Bluesfest economic impact to Byron Shire
In 2013, the festival was estimated to bring over $64 million to the Byron Shire, and the indications of numbers for its 25th birthday, what with the amazing weather and increadible line-up, will definately be higher,

says Cameron Arnold, president of the Visitor Industry Association (VIA) Byron.

Ave atque vale Chris Wilson. We are saddened to hear of Chris' passing today. A passionate Australian Bluesman to experience, his singing and harp playing was moving and we were fortunate to have him perform at many Bluesfests in the past. Our thoughts are with his family, friends and the Blues community.

Very sad news indeed

🙏

Peter Blood

Such a loss...oh the talent.

Massively sad news. Chris was an extraordinary Australian blues harp player and singer. I saw many great shows of him and Shane O'Mara in the 90's esp at the wonerful Can Gogh's earlobe. Highly recommend his Live at the Continental album. Cheers Chris, you will be missed but not forgotten.

A mate & I walked into the festival 1 arvo & we could hear Big Chris going off . We looked at each & both knew exactly where we were going. We walked into the Jambalaya tent n saw him & Jeff Lang cutting it up. That show is etched in my brain.

Wow, this is sad,loved his harp,loved Spider-Man album.

This is very sad news! I could watch & listen to him for hours & hours!

Rip Chris Wilson

Very sad.great blues man.

So sad , "You Will Surely Love Again gets played often in this house, awesome voice , RIP CHRIS

Not massively familiar with Chris’s work, but love what he did with Ash Grunwald. Aussie has so many talented muscos.
