Deni Blues & Roots Festival Announces Daily Artist Schedule

Written by Kiel Egging on January 9, 2013

Organisers of the inaugural Deni Blues & Roots Festival in Deniliquin, NSW have announced the daily schedule of artists for the two-day event.

The festival – a local spin-off featuring artists from the Byron Bay Bluesfest – will be held on Saturday, March 30 and Sunday, March 31 over the Easter long weekend. All of the acts will travel to Deniliquin following their performances in Byron Bay earlier in the week.

Chris Issak, Jason Mraz and Newton Fawkner will headline Saturday night’s festivities, while Status Quo, Santana and Steve Miller Band will be the drawcards on Sunday.

The Deni Blues & Roots Festival is a new venture between Chugg Entertainment, Rob Potts Entertainment Edge and the Deni Plains on the Play Festival. It is being held on the same site as the town’s famous Ute Muster in Conagro Rd, which is staged in late September/early October.

The playing times and running order will be supplied closer to the event. Tickets and more information are available here.
