THE CENTRAL COASTS VERY OWN ANNUAL WORLD-CLASS BLUES MUSIC FESTIVAL.

The Girrakool Blues Festival & BBQ 2017 program will again include National and International acts, with an extra day of music on Sunday. The line-up will be equally as good as the last festival, but there will be just more of it.

The latest band announcements confirm Girrakool will once again see local, interstate and international blues and roots acts, plus Australian comedy legend Anthony Ackroyd as MC, performing across 2 stages.

The stellar line-up includes; Hot 8 Brass band,  Phil Wiggins & DomTurner, Eugene Hideaway Bridges (USA), Harper and Midwest Kind (USA), Chasin The Train, GAWURRA, Hat Fitz & Cara,….

…. Foreday Riders, Lachy Doley Group, Blues Eyes Cry, Darren Jack (SOLO), Cyril B Bunter with Mal Eastick, Christina Crofts Band, ….

…. 19-TWENTY, Grizzlee Train, MESCALERO, Cass Eager and The Velvet Rope, Wards Express, Kristen Lee Morris, Rivershack and Yella Cats.

An exciting new part of the festival is the The Central Coast’s BBQ Stand Off – the Central Coast’s first ever BBQ Competition. This comp is fully endorsed by the Australasian BBQ Alliance, which means not only will teams be competing for prizes on the day but will also be competing for points that go towards the year’s tally for overall winner for the year. It is also the only competition on the Central Coast.
