Live Review: Byron Bay Bluesfest Day Five - Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (01.04.13)

And just like that we'd once again come to the end of the Byron Bay Bluesfest. As the event's fifth day, it's fair to say that by now we were both exhausted and used to the exciting lifestyle that the festival offers. It's never an easy event to say goodbye to, especially after a year that housed one of its best lineups ever, and was without a doubt the best Bluesfest we've ever attended. Although my sore, sore feet beg to differ.

After five days of music on the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in a year, festival director Peter Noble called "their best ever year" at a press conference this morning; both in terms of lineup, and the way the festival was run - including new noise restraints that kept disruption to both people and wildlife to an absolute minimum - Bluesfest was brought to a close tonight for the 24th time, by the one and only Paul Simon.
