Today Bluesfest Festival Director Peter Noble OAM has officially announced the return of BluesFest 2021, after having to cancel the Easter event, for a second year in a row.
The legendary Australian music festival will return this October with almost all of the artists due to play at Easter to return with the addition of Midnight Oil, who are joining the all-Aussie line up to headline opening night Friday 1st October.
Paul Kelly will then co-headline Saturday 2nd October, alongside Tash Sultana. And rounding off a sensational weekend's music, Jimmy Barnes will bring down the curtain on the festival on Sunday.
Season tickets go on sale 9am Thursday 20th May via Moshtix.
3 Day and 1 Day tickets plus camping and VIP on sale soon.
Get excited for Paul Kelly with this fresh performance, live on Molloy from last week:
In the announcement the festival said: "We have shown a determination to overcome everything we had to face to re-schedule, knowing that as an integral part of the Australian music industry, so many were counting on us".
