Bluesfest 2021 Lineup Expands With Ocean Alley & More

14

The Bluesfest 2021 lineup has expanded again with the addition of an eclectic batch of homegrown talent.

ARIA award winners Ocean Alley lead the charge, alongside Australian music icon John Williamson, Tex Perkins as “The Man In Black”, Noiseworks legend Jon Stevens, Josh Teskey and Ash Grunwald performing songs from their forthcoming collaborative album, singer sisters Vika & Linda and more.

});

They join 49 other Aussie acts already confirmed to play the 2021 extravaganza, which is locked in for April of next year at Byron Events Farm Tyagarah, including Jimmy Barnes, The Church, Kate Miller-Heidke, The Living End, Tash Sultana and more.

It comes after Bluesfest organisers repackaged next year’s bill as a “merged Australian lineup”, but stopped short of ruling out the possibility that previously announced international artists like Bon Iver, Patti Smith And Her Band and George Benson could still end up appearing.

“Time will tell, but It is being said that the 2021 Bluesfest line up is the greatest assembly of Australian artists to ever perform at one event,” says festival boss Peter Noble.

“Ticket sales are showing that the Australian public is ready to celebrate safely and we are on target for a sell-out at our expected capacity. My focus right now is on bringing this festival home in 2021.”

It comes after the 2020 event was cancelled due to COVID, costing the NSW economy a staggering $203.6 million and 1,158 full time equivalent (FTE) jobs in the process.

Tickets to the 2021 event are on sale now (details below).
