As Bluesfest season is right around the corner, that means that the highly-anticipated Bluesfest sideshows are coming up fast too. Tons of international acts are playing shows around the country, and now we finally know who of our homegrown heroes will be supporting them.
Acts like Iggy Pop, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic and Ray LaMontagne have all actually hand-picked the Aussie artists they want supporting them at these sideshows, with some of those being acts like The Chats and Emily Wurramara.
This year’s Bluesfest lineup is particularly massive, headlined by acts like Jack Johnson, Iggy Pop, Norah Jones, The Racontuers, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals and way more.
Bluesfest is set to happen from Thursday, 18th – Monday, 22nd April.
