Bluesfest Byron Bay has dropped another lil artist announcement on us this morning, with the confirmation that the legendary Santana (with full band) and The Doobie Brothers will both be on the festival line up over Easter weekend 2017.
More announcements are still to come, but as Bluesfest continues to roll on towards its next, this one is a pretty special reveal for long time festival fans as well as those who are to be heading along for the first time next year.
“His signature guitar sound is unlike any other,” Festival Director Peter Noble has said of Santana. “It simply is his and his alone. It’s the same with everything he creates. Santana is music royalty – one of the greats.”
“The Doobie Brothers blitzed when they last played Bluesfest. They are simply a brilliant live band. They perform hit after hit, leaving their fans both old and new in raptures.”
The artist schedule is available on the Bluesfest website, with tickets on sale now too. The festival runs from April 13th – 17th.
