Bluesfest have added eight international acts to their 2022 line-up.

Set to land in Byron Bay next Easter will be George Benson, Morcheeba, The Marcus King Band, The Wailers, Amadou & Mariam, The War And Treaty, Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram and Cory Henry.

Each artist (except Amadou & Mariam) will undertake their own headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney next April as well.

"I have been in communication with managers and agents since our first cancellation and I am so happy that we can finally bring back these internationals in time for Bluesfest as well as some touring dates," Bluesfest Director Peter Noble OAM says.

"It feels like a brilliant Christmas present to me and I'm sure our Bluesfest fans will be stoked to hear about these much-loved artists coming back to Bluesfest.



"Living legend George Benson makes his Bluesfest debut; Morcheeba, Bluesfest favourites, are very welcome returnees and The Wailers, for whom I hold a special place in my heart, are now led by a new generation of children as well as former members of the original Wailers, keeping the light and music of Bob Marley shining and alive.

"Marcus King raised the tent roof at our 30th birthday celebrations in 2019 – what a guitar phenomenon he is!

"And remember The War & Treaty, how they became one of THE discovery artists in 2019 – it's exciting to welcome them back as well.

"Amadou & Mariam, Christone 'Kingfish' Ingram and Cory Henry were all slated to appear in 2020, and it's a joy to have them confirm their Bluesfest appearances at Easter."


Bluesfest 2022 takes place at Byron Events Farm (Byron Bay) 14-18 April.
