Lauryn Hill Is Coming Back To Australia For Bluesfest 2018

Written by Tom Williams on January 18, 2018

R&B legend and former The Fugees member Ms. Lauryn Hill has announced she’s heading back to Australia in March to perform at the 2018 edition of Byron Bay Bluesfest.

Hill last performed in Australia in 2014, when she played headline shows in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. This time around she’ll play an exclusive set at Bluesfest on Easter Friday, backed by songs from across her career, including her 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and an impressive list of singles.

Hill joins a lineup which already included other big-name female talents like Kesha, Sheryl Crow, Tash Sultana and Melissa Etheridge. Peep the full Bluesfest 2018 lineup and all the ticket details, below.

The 29th annual Bluesfest will take place at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm this Easter long weekend.
