Joining an already out-of-this-world stellar line up are 12 more artists from all around the world placing a big blues & roots driven exclamation mark to this year's programming for the 31st Byron Bay Bluesfest 2020!

Leading the pack is festival favourite Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue: part Jimi Hendrix, part James Brown and all New Orleans. From there Melbourne funk/soul powerhouse The Bamboos join the lineup, celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band and primed to rock the stage this Easter.
