The first local and New Zealand artist line up for the Byron Bluesfest has finally landed! Joining the already killer line up that features Jimmy Cliff, Ben Harper and Robert Plant are the following:
THE CAT EMPIRE
FAT FREDDY’S DROP
Feat. Members of Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes, Hunters & Collectors
BEASTS OF BOURBON
The gumboots have stayed in backs of cars across Tyagarah. This has definitely been a Bluesfest to remember!
Although over the past four days we’ve talked a lot about the crowd getting moving to the incredible Bluesfest artists’ beats, Day 5 felt a lot more introspective. As storytellers and image-weavers dominated our discoveries, there was a line drawn in bold between us and the musical past.
