It’s July and we’re already getting 2016 festival announcements? That’s crazy.
This morning Bluesfest revealed their first round of artists for the 2016 festival, which is not until the end of March, a full eight months away. A lot has been made of the “shock” exclusive headliner The National (who have always drawn influences from roots music, even if what they do is not exactly roots) but as always we’re super excited about the artists a little bit further down the list like Rhiannon Giddens and Shakey Graves.
Bluesfest is held over the Easter long weekend from the 24th to 28th March just outside of Byron bay. The full list of artists announced is below – check out the official site for more details.
