The lineup for Bluesfest 2021 has just expanded by another nine top-notch artists, just one month out from takeoff.
Pete Murray leads the crop, alongside Mark Seymour and the Untertow and Kate Ceberano who’ll all be lighting up the stage on Easter Monday.
“We can’t wait to be presenting Bluesfest in 4 weeks,” festival boss Peter Noble said in a statement.
“Pinch me, my dream is coming true to see festivals occurring again in Australia. With the addition of nine more sensational Australian artists to our already magnificent lineup, I am convinced this will be one of the great Bluesfests.”
He continued: “Pete Murray, Mark Seymour & The Undertow and Kate Ceberano join our headline lineup to play on the final day of Bluesfest – and this will make Easter Monday a special day to be at Bluesfest. In fact, Easter Monday is shaping up now to be one of the highlight days of the Easter weekend.”
The festival is now 85% sold out so if you want to be in on the action you’d better get in quick.
Also ICYMI the festival will be going ahead as a fully seated event, while masks will not be mandatory.
It comes after Bluesfest pulled all the international artists from its 2021 lineup amid the constant and everchanging state border closures across the nation.
Bluesfest 2021 is set to take place at its usual home of Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in Byron Bay next year between the 1st-5th April, with a lineup that includes the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, The Teskey Brothers and many more.
