In what will largely be an all-Australian affair, Bluesfest have revealed another eight classic Australian bands/ artists who've been added to the 2021 line-up.
Remarkably, psych-rock guitar stars The Church will step on Bluesfest stage for the very first time in 2021.
Award winning singer-songwriter and Eurovision 2019 success story, Kate Miller-Heidke
will also bring her touch of class to Byron Bay next Easter. While not-so-old punk rockers The Living End showcase their blend of rockabilly and ska, with the classic pub sounds of The Angels to be heard at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm as well.
No doubt Australian rock royalty and bona fide legend, Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks will be pumping out the non-stop hit machine featuring songs from Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock.
Festival favourites, Blue King Brown headed up by the dynamic, no-holds- barred pocket rocket Nattali Rize return to Bluesfest in 2021.
"Bluesfest is one of our favourite festivals on the planet. We're looking forward to returning to Australian shores and bringing the full power Blue King Brown show home," Nattali says.
With 14 Bluesfest performances behind him, the first in 1994, Jeff Lang is a legend in his own right and will add a 15th appearance.
Adding more femme force to the bill is the return to Australia from the now Nashville based, singer-songwriter Kara Grainger, her soulful vocals and style of slide guitar has earned her 'opening' performance slots with Peter Frampton, Buddy Guy and Taj Mahal.
Commenting on the announcement Festival Director, Peter Noble OAM says: "Look at this line-up – all that talent. "When it comes to musical talent Australia is an embarrassment of riches and it is a privilege to create a line-up to clearly showcase that very fact."Tickets to Bluesfest 2021 are now available.
Bluesfest at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm (Byron Bay) takes place 1-5 April, 2021.
