The 31st annual Byron Bay Bluesfest will run from Thursday, 9th April til Monday, 13th April 2020 at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, with promoters promising “the best festival yet”.

“Eight months before Bluesfest, located just outside beautiful Byron Bay, next Easter, where the rainforest meets the sea, and the average temperature in April is 24c in the day and 18c at night…. we have just dropped what we believe is our finest First Artist Announce in our 30 years so far,” spruiks Festival boss Peter Noble.

“We have plenty more coming …. including more absolute headliners …. We believe in music ….it’s in our DNA… and we are dedicated to present the very best. We have an historic Bluesfest coming on our 31st edition…. Hello music lovers. Come join us!”
