George Benson is an artist that barely needs an introduction. The iconic guitarist is a multiple Grammy-winner and is sure to be one of Bluesfest’s biggest drawcards. Similarly, former Snarky Puppy member Cory Henry will bring his own virtuosic energy to the bill, accompanied by an all-star band.

Morcheeba is a bluesfest institution. Led by Skye Edwards, the band is set to dish up an experience filled with chillout anthem after anthem. The reggae dynasty that is The Wailers is set to hit the Bluesfest stage too, keeping the fire lit by Bob Marley all those years ago burning strong.

A host of new and exciting talents like The Marcus King Band, The War and Treaty, Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram, and Afro-pop icons Amadou and Mariam are also joining the stacked lineup.
