Bluesfest season is still a good six months away, but that doesn’t mean they already don’t have one of the strongest lineups of 2020. And, just in case it wasn’t good enough already, they’ve added a stack more acts to get you pumped.
At the top of this second announcement is the legend himself, Lenny Kravitz. On top of that, other iconic artists like The Waterboys, Jimmie Vaughan, Eagles Of Death Metal and many more will be taking on the festival in 2020 as well. It’s a fucking extravaganza.
“As the Bluesfest lineup is organically building, I am delighted to welcome Lenny Kravitz as a headliner,” said festival director Peter Noble OAM in a statement.
“Lenny has often been described as ‘the last of the great rock stars’ and anyone who has seen him live will know why! I am thrilled to welcome him to Bluesfest 2020, dreams do come true!”
These acts join previously announced acts like Patti Smith, Dave Matthews Band, Crowded House, Brandi Carlile and plenty more.
