Bluesfest is back for 2023 and next year will be one of its biggest yet, with the festival bringing back international artists for the first time since 2019. The line-up boasts a whopping lineup of artists. It includes a range of incredible country, blues, rock and folk artists, such as Beck, Elvis Costello And The Imposters, The Doobie Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Lucinda Williams, Jackson Browne, Gang Of Youths, Steve Earle, Counting Crows, Tash Sultana, the final tour by Buddy Guy and much more!
On the event, Festival Director Peter Nobel stated: "Whilst there are still plenty of Aussie artists listed in this first and upcoming announcements it is wonderful to once again in 2023, after four long years be able to bring back some of the greatest blues, roots, soul, rock, hip hop, R&B, world and Americana artists (and so much more) back to our shores after so long. As well as, of course, the stars of tomorrow.
"A five-day season ticket at Bluesfest can be a life changing experience, and I promise you I will do my utmost best to present the greatest gathering of artists I can for our 34th Annual Bluesfest at Byron Events Farm over the Easter Long Weekend from April 6th - 10th 2023.
"To all Bluesfest fans, artists, suppliers, contractors, volunteers and to my dedicated team - thank you so much for your belief and your support. Together we’ve endured a few hard years. It’s time to get excited... time to come out and play, and to enjoy an experience like no other."
