It’s arguable Australia’s most distinct and durable music festival, and this year, it’s bigger than ever. Merging sounds and blending audiences is the key to 2016’s huge lineup. Artists of young and old will grace the stages over a mammoth five days at the end of March.
Bluesfest has always been curated by the father figure of the Australian music scene Peter Noble, being able to draw musicians of the highest calibre, from Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Gary Clark Jr. (only a very few of who has come), to overseas heroes that the Australian crowds yet not know as well as being able to birth some of Australia’s most successful musicians to date.
2016 sees the biggest lineup of new, old and everything in between and we are extremely happy to announce we will be there along the way.
Sidelife will be there for in depth artist interviews, previews and everything else you will need in order to be updated with the festival, plus our good friends at Mr Simple will be there with their famous Festival Outfitters pop up store. From start to finish we have you covered, so make sure you come along for the journey.
