These 9 new additions to the 2021 Bluesfest lineup will have you wishing 2020 could just be over. Well, it’s another reason to wish that.
Around about now it’s nice to have some live music to write about, even if it’s coming up next year. The ever-amazing Bluesfest Byron Bay are going full-steam ahead for its 2021 addition next Easter, and today they’ve added a stack of Aussie talent to their lineup.
Tash Sultana leads the new lineup, a Bluesfest veteran who’s proved a festival favourite every time she touches down. She’ll be joined by talent including Kev Carmody and Ian Moss, not to mention neo-soul legends Hiatus Kaiyote.
The new additions also include Briggs, who’s back with a force in 2021, recently releasing his powerful single Go To War featuring Thelma Plum.
Check out the new additions as well as the full lineup below. Bluesfest takes place from Thursday 1st to Monday 5th April 2021 in Byron Bay, NSW. Grab your tickets here.
