LIVING music legend Tom Jones and former Oasis front man Noel Gallagher are part of the second line up announcement for Bluesfest 2016.

Tom Jones will be appearing at Bluesfest for the first time next year.

Over his 50-year career, Tom Jones has sold more than 100 million records, won a Grammy and two Brit Awards and given us countless hits including memorable songs It's Not Unusual, Delilah, Green Green Grass of Home, What's New Pussycat , She's a Lady, Kiss, Mama Told Me, Thunderball, Burning Down The House , Sex Bomb, I'll Never Fall In Love Again and If I Only Knew.

Also headlining yesterday's announcement was Noel Gallagher, who will be performing at Bluesfest with his band, the High Flying Birds.

Noel Gallagher, the principal songwriter, lead guitarist and backing vocalist for multi-platinum, award-winning band Oasis is also making his Bluesfest debut next year.

Oasis won six Brit Awards, and the band was nominated for 92 awards, winning 37 of them, including Top of the Pops, NME Awards and MTV Awards to name a few.

The announcement also included World / Folk / hip-hop / roots music collective Nahko and Medicine For The People.

A local favourite, Nahko Bear blew the Bluesfest crowds away in 2014 with his band's spiritual and socially-conscious message.

The second announcement also includes American indie folk rock band The Decemberists, singer-songwriter Jason Isbell, alternative Country artist Sturgill Simpson, Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy and American Rock, Country and Folk singer Steve Earle.

Also in the second line-up announcement are Jamaican reggae icons The Wailers, Blues singer Grace Potter and rising US indie folk band Lord Huron in their Bluesfest debut.

Festival director Peter Noble said there would be more line up announcements.

"Yes, there are more announcements to come," he said.
