Diaries out, rockabillies: Bluesfest has announced its final playing schedule

If you haven’t bought a ticket to Bluesfest, then I just don’t know what to say to you.

The final playing schedule has been announced, and it makes for one of the best lineup of legendary artists we have seen in a while. With these new details you’re able to map out your day to the minute and make sure you don’t miss any of the action.


Byron Bay Bluesfest is one of the most exciting festivals on the Australian music calendar. The latest developments in set times means that not a minute will be wasted in catching your favourite artists.

Leon Bridges will be opening the event with his majestic soul fusion, alongside Gomez whose rock and roll energy will set the tone for an incredible first day. Friday ushers in the majestic Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and the unmatched Ms Lauryn Hill.

Coming into Saturday you have the opportunity to catch the venerable songwriter Jackson Browne and Sunday celebrates our local talent with Tash Sultana and John Butler Trio, while  on Monday you can hope to see Lionel Richie and the ARIA Nominated Dan Sultan.

If you were on the fence about getting yourself to Byron for the Easter Long Weekend then I think we have made you decision for you. This is a lineup to good to refuse.
