Bluesfest Byron Bay has this morning announced a further fifteen artists to the lineup for it’s 35th anniversary festival. Together with the first artist announcement, this represents a total of 38 acts now booked
Joining the likes of the previously-announced international artists, Elvis Costello, Jack Johnson and Tom Jones are Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Rickie Lee Jones, Playing For Change Band and Coterie along with recently re-formed Aussie legends The Cruel Sea, Ian Moss, Dan Sultan, Tim Finn, Caravãna Sun, The Whitlams Black Stump Band, The Women of Soul Collective, WILSN, and Lisa Hunt. In addition, there will be exclusive festival-only appearances by the critically-acclaimed Jackie Venson and the legendary Taj Mahal.
Bluesfest Byron Bay is Australia’s premier, and longest-running festival. It is held in the beautiful green surrounds of the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, situated on its’ own site at Tyagarah, just north of the iconic Byron Bay. The festival has been host to a myriad of great artists, both local and international over the years, and this year promises more of the same with the artists already named, and with those still to be named in ensuing announcements.
In conjunction with last fortnight’s news of the return of the Jambalaya stage, the 2024 festival is already looking to be one for the ages.
