Blige, Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Rickie Lee Jones, Corinne Bailey Rae, Beth Hart, Laura Mvula, Rhiannon Giddens, Nikki Hill, Joan Osborne, Melody Angel and Irish Mythen.

“Patti personally requested Courtney Barnett to be her special guest in her final ever show in Australia at Melbourne’s Festival Hall, just a few days after the festival,” said Bluesfest Director Peter Noble. “We are thrilled to announce that Courtney will play before Patti on Easter Thursday at Bluesfest.”
