UPDATE 02/12/16: Neil Young has cancelled his appearance at Bluesfest 2017.
UPDATE: Barry Gibb has also announced an Australian headline tour for 2017.
Following a massive announcement that Neil Young will headline the festival, organisers have added another big drawcard, announcing that Gibb will co-headline the festival.
Like Young, this will be the first time Gibb has ever played Bluesfest, bringing with him decades of Bee Gees hits and a new solo album.
Gibb recently released his first solo album, which is the first new material from him since the Bee Gees final studio album was released back in 2001. It’s also his first solo album in 32 years.
Gibb will close out Bluesfest on Easter Monday, 17th March April. He’ll follow a plethora of amazing acts Santana, Mary J. Blige, Mavis Staples and more.
