Byron Bay Blues Fest welcomes its biggest crowd
MICHAEL CHUGG was ecstatic. The promoter of the East Coast Blues and Roots Festival stood on the Mojo stage late on Thursday and declared to the crowd: "This is the biggest Thursday night we've ever had!" By late yesterday, Mr Chugg reported traffic flow was smooth and, although the weather was bad, the ground was holding up 'brilliantly'. Byron Bay is expected to be full this weekend as people come from all across the country to watch acts such as Missy Higgins, Bonnie Raitt, Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers and Xavier Rudd.
