First Byron Bay Bluesfest Lineup 2014 announced!
It will be the festival’s 25th Birthday and there surely will be celebrated in style with artists like these. We always wonder, if the festival can really exceed the previous year’s lineup and we will sit tight again and see what else they have in store for us.
Commenting on the significance of the festival’s silver anniversary, director Peter Noble says, “We are going to be celebrating this one as never before and will deliver you one hell of a line up and mark my words: this is only the beginning.” He couldn’t be more right, with 2014?s Bluesfest shaping up to be their best yet and serving as a testament to the festival’s commitment to a dynamic and eclectic mix of fantastic artists.
Personal recommendation so far: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. These guys were supporting Mumford & Sons last year on their Australian tour and we’ve been waiting for them to return since then.
The first announcement is promising:
John Butler Trio
Dave Matthews Band
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
Iron & Wine
Michael Franti & Spearhead
Gary Clark Jr.
The festival will as always take place on the Easter Long Weekend (17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st April, 2014).
