They’ve clearly gone mad over at Bluesfest HQ, but the kinda mad we like to see in our festival organisers. Today marks the 5th instalment of the events lineup, announcing Jason Mraz, Manu Chao and many more.
Best known for his super smash hit album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things, Jason Mraz has well and truly climbed to the highest peaks offered in popular music. The crooner has returned to the charts with his latest album Love Is a Four Letter Word. Mraz will be performing on the opening day of the festival.
Known as one of the most charismatic and energetic musicians around, Manu Chao, with his band La Ventura, will be performing on Good Friday. Combining the best of punk, rock, reggae, ska, salsa, chanson and Algerian Rai with a stern stance on anti-globalisation and Anti Free Trade, Chao is as loved by his fans as he is respected.
Mark Seymour, known for his legendary work as frontman of Hunters & Collectors, will be performing his solo material with his band The Undertow. The 6th, self-titled instalment in his solo adventure has been hailed as his best to date, meaning we can expect Seymour in fine form.
The full and potentially final lineup can be checked out below. To view the whole thing click here.
