Bluesfest 2018 Set Times Announced

After losing one of its 2018 headliners this morning, Byron Bay Bluesfest has unveiled its official set times to help punters plan their time at the festival.

Singer-songwriter Kesha cancelled her Bluesfest appearance this morning after suffering a knee injury at a recent show, but she still appears on the festival’s just-announced set times, which you can view below.

(UPDATE: Organisers have released new set times which don’t include Kesha. See below)

Music Feeds has contacted Bluesfest for comment on whether or not a replacement act will be announced for Kesha.

Bluesfest will take place across five days this Easter long weekend, between Thursday, 29th March and Monday, 2nd April. With over 70 artists scheduled to perform back-to-back for 12 hours each day across multiple stages, there’s almost too much great music to check out.

The likes of Leon Bridges, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Robert Plant & The Sensation Space Shifters, John Butler Trio, Sheryl Crowe and Lionel Richie will perform headline-length sets at the festival, and you can check out the full lineup down below.

Aside from the tunes, there will (of course) also be a variety of food stalls, markets, on-site camping and parking.

UPDATE 14/03/18: Bluesfest has released updated set times, after adding some final acts to its 2018 lineup.
