The eight-time Grammy Award winning artist, BECK, has been named as one of the major headliners for Bluesfest Byron Bay 2023. His announcement makes him the 50th artist announced to be playing at Australia’s premier festival.
Joining the likes of Elvis Costello, Buddy Guy and Jackson Browne, the brilliant BECK will be gracing the stage at Bluesfest for the first time, and will perform an acoustic show The Times (of London) described as “a one-man festival”. The Sphere (also of London) described the show as “palpably thrilling… a night to savour” and the Austin Chronicle said, “the Californian’s voice sounded incredible throughout the show”.
Festival Director Peter Noble said “We are hugely excited to be presenting BECK, making his Bluesfest debut with a unique acoustic performance. We have already announced 49 artists for our 34th Bluesfest, and BECK makes it 50! His acoustic set will certainly provide an avant-garde element to our already amazing line up. For the first time since 2019, Bluesfest is free and unencumbered to showcase the finest genres of music from all over the globe, and BECK is the true personification of this“.
Bluesfest, Australia’s most awarded music festival, will take place over 5 days from Thursday 6th to Monday 10th April 2023 at the Byron Events Farm, Tyagarah, NSW, AUSTRALIA. It has been recognised as one of the TOP 10 Festivals of the Decade by industry bible, Pollstar in 2021.
