Bluesfest Is Showering Us With Announcements And Giving Us BONUS Line-Up In Time For Christmas Today

Recently, Bluesfest has been cranking out the good news by giving us even more spectacular additions to their already luscious lineup with TWO massive announcements in the last two weeks... PLUS this morning we have a hot-off-the-press special CHRISTMAS bonus artist announcement!

First they brought us a taste of the Boomerang Festival. Already an immense cultural experience, the addition of Boomerang Festival gives Bluesfest a further edge. Experience talks, workshops, traditional healing practices and dances of the First people and understand the rich history of Australia. 

It's shaping up to be a truly deadly Boomerang program featuring:

Rako Dancers | Jannawi Dancers | Excelsior
Malu Kiai Mura Buai Dance Troupe
Going Wanhurr And East Journey | Arakwal Dancers

'25 years of Charcoal Lane' | 'Music making of the displaced'
'Issues affecting island communities' | 'The New Black Voice'

Te Kopere Healing Program
With more to be announced!

Then, the good news kept rolling in (they really know how to keep you on your toes!). Another HUGE lineup of artists was announced and we've absolutely got the blues now! We've got our sunglasses on at night, as we'll see the "Original" Blues Brothers Band bring the festival home with an all-you-can-dance performance - what a way to end the weekend!

The "Original" Blues Brothers Band
Don Mclean

Jeff Martin (The Tea Party)
Archie Roach
