Bluesfest has established itself as an iconic event and is equally loved for the music but also for its unspoiled atmosphere at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm over the Easter long weekend 17-21 April.

The festival is loved by all ages and 2014 marks its 25th anniversary.

Bluesfest Festival Director Peter Noble said this year has not only been about who to put on, but who to leave out.

“As the guy who gets to go through the thousands of bands from local artists through to a large number of the world’s biggest who want to play our big birthday this year, the task is enormous, it’s a huge challenge and very rewarding,” said Mr Noble.

“We are presenting those who do great shows – which is what the Festival is renowned for – plus we continue to introduce artists for the first time, who we believe will be future major performers in years to come, alongside the legends and breakthrough artists for who we have become renowned in choosing to perform on their climb to the top.”
