Australia’s Bluesfest announces first acts for 2023!

In just 31 weeks the 34th Annual Bluesfest’s gates will open for what promises to be the most exciting Bluesfest ever.

Some of the finest contemporary and legendary Blues, Roots, Soul, Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, World and Americana music artists (and more) are confirmed to appear for the first original style Bluesfest since the world’s borders re-opened.

After a hugely successful 2022, that featured the best of predominantly Australian and NZ artists, it’s time to mix it up again. For the first time since 2019, Bluesfest is free and unencumbered to showcase the finest genres of music from all over the globe.

And more good news is that ticket prices, camping and VIP tickets remain the same as 2022’s prices. That’s despite the significant increase in cost of international flights and freight logistics, with artists fees also on the rise. Bluesfest will also invest in upgrading the VIP area to raise the VIP experience to new heights.

This is an incredible opening line up – over 40 artists alone in this first announcement – with more to come.
