Bluesfest add Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, and more to an already stacked 2019 lineup

Bluesfest are known for dropping huge third and fourth lineup announcements, but seriously guys, this is getting out of hand. With a lineup that already houses such names as George Clinton, Kurt Vile, Iggy Pop, and Paul Kelly, Bluesfest could’ve easily called it a day and left it at that. But of course, that’s not their style…

Today, the Byron Bay festival have gone and announced a stack of new artists to join an already massive 2019 lineup. We’re getting pretty damn excited now.

It seems we’ve been saying this a lot lately… but just when you thought Bluesfest 2019 couldn’t get any bigger, they’ve gone and dropped a huge fourth lineup announcement.

Joining in of the fun this April will be Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley, Six60, and Amaru Tribe. This comes just weeks after it was announced that Jack White’s band The Saboteurs (aka The Raconteurs) will reunite at the festival.

Apparently, more announcements are still to come. So, keep your eyes peeled people. For now, grab tickets and info here, and suss out the full 2019 lineup below:
