A bunch of Aussie favourites have joined the already stacked Bluesfest 2021 bill.

The Bluesfest 2021 lineup just got even better, with eight more beloved Australian acts revealed for next year’s event in the festival’s third artist announcement.

Headlined by The Church, who will be making their Bluesfest debut, the latest artists announcement will also see Kate Miller-Heidke, The Living End, The Angels, Ross Wilson and The Peaceniks, Blue King Brown, Jeff Lang and Kara Grainger hitting the stage at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm next year. 

The freshly revealed acts join an already stacked lineup which includes the like of Patti Smith and Her Band, George Benson, Bon Iver, Jimmy Barnes, Kool & The Gang, The Wailers, Briggs, The Teskey Brothers, Kev Carmody, and many more.

“Look at this line up – all that talent. When it comes to musical talent Australia is an embarrassment of riches and it is a privilege to create a line up to clearly showcase that very fact,” said Bluesfest Festival Director, Peter Noble OAM.

Bluesfest 2021 will take place next Easter in its usual home just north of Byron Bay. Last month, the festival organisers revealed they are working with the government in order to deliver a COVID-safe festival after being forced to cancel this year’s event due to restrictions on mass gatherings.
