THIS JUST IN - KENDRICK LAMAR is headlining Thursday at The 27th Bluesfest Byron Bay 2016!
This is no joke, we repeat, Kendrick Lamar WILL be headlining!
He's Compton born, Platinum selling, and a two time Grammy Award winning artist, and he'll be gracing us with his presence next year over Easter weekend just north of Byron Bay.
He's an exceptional storyteller and lyricist and is known for his compelling and poetic albums - he's even been likened to Bob Dylan by Pharrell Williams! His third and most recent album, To Pimp a Butterfly (2015) debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Kendrick Lamar joins the 32 artists that have so far been announced for the 27th Annual Bluesfest - and tickets are selling fast!
