Sister event to Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, the 2013 lineup for Fremantle’s West Coast Blues & Roots Festival has been announced, and it’s a monster. Sporting a similar roster of acts to the Bluesfest lineup, the two-day festival will be headlined by Robert Plant, Iggy and the Stooges and Ben Harper.
The additional announcement of another Robert Plant show makes the possibility of sideshows even more likely. Now in its tenth year, the festival will be held in Fremantle Park, situated in the heart of Perth. Also on the bill are the likes of Status Quo, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Wilco, Jimmy Cliff, Ash Grunwald, Michael Kiwanuka and Benjamin Francis Leftwhich.
The event will take place over 23rd & 24th March and will celebrate its respectable milestone in style, with many more acts to be announced. Headliner, Plant, will present his Sensational Space Shifters show, which recently saw him tackled on stage during a gig in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
