Eagles of Death Metal, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band & more added to Bluesfest line up!

Once again, the team behind Byron Bay Bluesfest have gone and delivered. With only seven weeks to go before their 2016 event kicks off at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, Bluesfest have named yet more artists to their expansive and impressive line up. Joining the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Tom Jones and others are Eagles of Death Metal, The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, Playing for Change Band, the Backsliders, Marshall Okell and more!

Of course, EODM have been in the minds of many since the horrific events in Paris late in 2015, so to see them coming out to Australia for this special event is wonderful. No doubt the fans will be turning out strong to see the US rockers make their Bluesfest return. We’ve also had Mick Fleetwood in the country recently with Fleetwood Mac, but this band will see the legendary drummer performing with former Mac member Rick Vito, along with Lenny Castellanos and Mark Johnston on this unmissable line up!
