Well, the 26th annual Bluesfest has come to a close and what a magic five days of world-class live music it was. 89 bands, a total of 908 artists and their tour party members and a reported 105,000 plus music loving punters over the Easter long weekend enjoying a feast of live music. The Bluesest team brings it on year in year out, with headliner cancellations and weather aside; number 26 was one of the best yet.

In the 22 years we have been attending Bluesfest we have watched it develop from a straight Blues festival to a world-renowned music festival, celebrating music across all genres. Along with the headliners Bluesfest audiences have been introduce to countless wonderful artists and bands over the years they would otherwise have never have experienced.  This festival is a must for any lover of live music.

Bluesfest 2016 5 day passes are on sale now at the special price of  $375.00, this won’t last long so be quick. First artist announcement is scheduled for August of this year; go to for details.
