Bluesfest 2012 Line-up – Final Announcement

The fifth and final round of artists for Byron Bay’s Bluesfest 2012 has been revealed this morning. This announcement also includes the replacement for Roger Daltrey, who cancelled a fortnight ago.

John Fogerty will be performing a second show on Monday 9th of April as well, playing two classic Creedence Clearwater Revival albums as well as some of his own solo canon of hits. The special sunset performance will set the scene for Bluesfest’s closing night, with many more wonderful artists to follow afterwards.
