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 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.

Can’t wait to see Caiti Baker! I’ve only just discovered her - wow! 😍

Nartarsha Shaw, Jessica Bresolin.....

It's a greai lineup with a lot of diversity but there must be another headliner. There's bound to be a too larger crowd than capacity in either Mojo or Crossroads just like last year when Santana played. Otherwise I'm pretty pleased Peter and Co !

Trish Jed, Anna!!!!! So many this year 👌

Are there to be any more major announcements?

Zig Connor Mason 😍

First Aid Kit!

Sam Bracey actually a sick lineup this year!!

Masoud Jalayer

NPG

Kristy Cullen

Morgan

THIS LOOKS MEAN KUZ Shian Love

How about Lana Del Ray please ? She’s in the country at that time .....

❤️ can’t wait ❤️

Scoobs Deb Truskett Kym Young

Chris Anabalon maybe this should be our littke getaway?

Sarah Joy Hoover Tristan Murphy get on it dudes

Robert Plant

Great line up .. but how is the Jim Butler Trio one of the Headline acts???... he’s way out of his depth .. maybe he should be on as one of the early acts at Juke Joint or the buskers booth

Bobby Rush! Thank you Bluesfest for giving us the chance to finally see this blues legend.

Such a disappointing line up. When pop stars start making their way in, you know its more about the money than the blues. I will not be attending!

Tijana Ljubisavljevic?

Megan Eliot

Benjamin Booker 😆

Lucas Roberts you lucky devils

Never saw it but as a big Jose fan this might be an obscure thread.. don't want to sound like an ingrate.. been to most BFs in the last 15 years and the pop/ Disney vibe is getting ridiculous. So much good stuff but another half dozen rootsy Aussie bands would be a super suprisingly good longterm business addition.

Fumes. Bennies. Butterfingers. Baker Boy. Shane Howard. Astronomy Class. Remi. All genres are great. It's turning into channel 7.

How's that for a #TBT? You can catch Lionel Richie and Bob Marley's band The Wailers at Bluesfest in 2018. Tickets are selling fast get yours at the link: goo.gl/J2ntJ8

Bluesfest is where Jennifer Morris and I fell in love ❤️

Mark Phillips unsubtle hint

Singer in our band, Brooks Point Blues, Ted Thomson, proposed to his girl Julie Richards onstage during Michael Franti and Spearhead's set. Ted was so overwhelmed he didn't hear Michael ask if he'd like to have a sing! He was nearly sick afterwards when I told him!! He'd have killed it, too. Great big bluesy voice.

Annie had booked tickets to go with a friend and their boyfriend long before we even met! The friend and boyfriend had broken up so now there was an opportunity to go along. Annie and I had only been together 6 months, not very long in the scheme of things. Last minute I made the decision to go. I was on a different flight and so already I felt discouraged, like a tag along. It was either going to make us or totally break us and be the worst decision. It also turned out that a fourth friend joined us as a ring in with Annie being the only one that knew the others. Bridget, Holly and I had never met. We spent 6 nights away together in Byron bay in a strange yet wickedly wonderful backpackers lodge, sharing a single bed and pillow. We were in each other's pockets all day, every day. We went to Bluesfest and had the time of our lives. Being surrounded by so much love and music, how could it possibly break us? We left Byron more in love with one another because our relationship flourished. We can’t make it this year but there is NO WAY we’ll miss next year. We also now have a beautiful friendship between the 4 of us, our hashtag is #byronhoes so we’ll always have a way to tap into those memories.

All loved up at Bluesfest ; happy valentines 💕💕💕

Couple new updates in line with the CPI bro
