Live Review: Byron Bay Bluesfest Day Two - Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (29.03.13)

Following up on what was a huge opening night for Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, Day Two’s program offered another fantastic line-up. Jumping between a variety of folk, blues, rock and soul acts whilst trying to avoid the downpours of rain across the night, Thursday was certainly an eventful day for the festival. From quality local acts including the lovely Skipping Girl Vinegar to special international Bluesfest regulars such as Ben Harper, the program presented us with endless opportunities to enjoy a superb array of musicians.

Robert Plant and Iggy Pop give Bluesfest in Byron Bay a Whole Lotta Love; closing out its third day.

Showing that the older rockers still have what it takes to pull a crowd (not to mention put on a show), Iggy and the Stooges and Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters played a string of their greatest hits - alongside some newer material - as they fought for the sold out Bluesfest crowd's attention as they closed out the festival's two biggest stages on the festival's third night; now in its 24th year.

the AU interview at Bluesfest: Kim Churchill (AUS)

In one of the most candid interviews, a flu-ridden and raspy-sounding Kim Churchill spoke to our editor, Larry Heath, about the new album, new single, touring, his connection with Canada, surfing, the weather and much, much more!

How many shows have you done? Three shows?

Yeah, done three shows now.

You’ve got nothing tomorrow?

Thank fuck!

So, you’re done, for now.

Yeah.

Do you get to hang around tomorrow as well?
