Bluesfest Adds Seven (Definitely Final) Acts To Its 2018 Lineup

Written by Tom Williams on March 14, 2018

The relentless organisers of Bluesfest have just added seven definitely final acts to their 2018 lineup, after adding even more final acts to their roster last month.

With just over two weeks until the annual festival returns to Byron Bay, organisers have locked in seven more “final artists”, with Citizen Cope, Clayton Doley’s Bayou Billabong, Hussy Hicks, Haley Grace & The Bay Collective, Little Georgia, Miss Renee Simone and Bali Blues Brother joining Bluesfest’s massive 2018 bill.

“After eight announcements here is the last one for 2018 and it’s a beauty,” says Bluesfest Director Peter Noble.

“It includes two international artists, one great Aussie Soul Blues Band, plus a whole bunch of Byron region artists who are showing the world we have a truly amazing music scene in the Northern Rivers.”

Today’s additions join the likes of previously announced acts like Lauren Hill, Kesha, Sheryl Crow, Melissa Etheridge, Robert Plant, Lionel Ritchie and Seal.

Bluesfest will take place across five days this Easter long weekend, between Thursday, 29th March and Monday, 2nd April. Peep the full lineup below, and all the current set times right here.
