THE DAY of reckoning has arrived for music fans at Bluesfest.

Forget Julia versus Tony, Ford versus Holden or even Sharks versus Dragons.

Tonight we must choose, will it be Iggy Pop or Robert Plant.

Both artists are huge drawcards for this years festival and their headlining shows overlap by one hour at different locations so punters will have to commit early if they want too lock in a good vantage point.

Robert Plant the lead singer with the legendary Led Zeppelin will hit the Mojo stage at 10pm and Iggy and the Stooges are due to kick out the jams on the Crossroads stage at 10.30.

Down on the street the word is that both singers are in cracking form with Plants Sensational Shape Shifters show including up to eight re-worked Zeppelin songs.

Iggy Pop on the other hand has two of the original Stooges in his band with guitarist James Williamson and bassist Mike Watt sharing Iggy's direct connection back to their proto-punk glory days.

It's not as if it will simply come down to audience age either with both Stooges and Zeppelin hitting their creative peaks starting in 1967 and 1968 respectively.

So it's been a long time a long time, been a long lonely, lonely, time, and now we must choose. Either way we are sure not to be bored.
