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.

Greg smoked up the Agnes Blues, Roots & Rock Festival stage on harp earlier this year 🥰🤘🎶🎊🔥

Beautiful ❤

THANKS SO MUCH, 'Junior'. Going to Bluesfest Byron Bay allowed participation in unfettered freedom with many, many music loving members of Australian society. I've spent countless hours there & have never seen happier healthier faces, gathered in larger numbers, anywhere else. I have not encountered any crowd 'trouble', ever ! ! I'm determined to 'stick around' for more. We / I will never take that freedom for granted again, if we happen to be in that giant 'green room' & fabulous artists' canteen, between the magical moments on those super stages.🌹

That’s the sweetest, most beautiful thing ❤️ Greg Parker did well 👌🏾

That is beautiful Julz Parker

Awesome!

Alana from All Our Exes Live in Texas share's a Father's Day message. Her dad sounds like a real character! She speaks of a caring man with a vague sense of timing and a love of comfort food 😍

For our Blues dads, Bluesfest is a great time to make memories with their sons and daughters and vice versa - what memories do you have?!

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian targets Major Events

The NSW Premier has announced a new coordinated approach for all major events to be planned across the state.

"I've delegated the Deputy Premier and the Treasury ministries to work with the state emergency centre... as it's not just health advice we need to rely on - it's also police."

Ms Berejiklian emphasised she wants the state to be focused on life resuming as normal.

"Our attitude in NSW is what can we do, not what can't we do," she said.

"Of course controlling the virus spread is a priority but so is getting life to as normal as possible and doing everything in a COVID-safe way."

The Premier said she will push for major events, like the New Year's Eve fireworks in Sydney, to go ahead.

"Where possible we should be hosting events we've hosted before but it will be different," she said. "I think for a lot of people the fireworks represent hope."

Earlier Deputy Premier John Barilaro said big drawcard events in Sydney should be cancelled if tourism events in regional NSW cities are called off due to the pandemic.

"If the regions have to lose big tourism events like the Tamworth Country Music festival, then there is no option but to cancel the big drawcard events in Sydney and the most obvious is the New Year's Eve fireworks," he said.

Doesn’t she discuss such with her coalition? Not just on different pages, more like different books.

This is a MAJOR statement for the Live... Music Industry.. thousands and thousands AND THOUSANDS ..of live music industry professionals are out of work NOW. . With no income. The statement signals a change of policy in the NSW GOVERNMENT .. which will allow us to resume ...SAFELY.

Yes, let's get back to normal. Be alert not alarmed, right 😆

They seem to have seriously mixed messages - Gladys wants to fireworks to go ahead but puts the bloke who wants them cancelled in charge. Huh? Hopefully they make progress towards restaging major events soon

Yes they want life to get back to as normal as they want it to get but no further.

What do they mean safely..noone at events?

Yes, great until there is a major outbreak, like Victoria, then it will have to change.

This is going to get very political very quickly. Those of us that work on these big events will likely ultimately lose out.

Is she loosing it...How can she control big fireworks in Summer,when barely controlled a little suburb of Bondi,at end of Summer 20...

The racing still on ??

NYE Fireworks represent an obscene waste of money.

for fireworks, we don't need them...light shows!! no more fireworks ever nor ballons!!

It’s not back to normal if we have to do it in a COVID safe way...
