Byron?s blues brothers bust-up

By MEGAN KINNINMENT

BYRON BAY'S blues brothers are splitting up, but the music will play on.

The music industry is abuzz over the break-up of East Coast Blues and Roots Festival partners Keven Oxford and Peter Noble.

The men have confirmed to The Northern Star the friendship has staled, and the festival partnership is over, but that next year's Blues Festival will still go ahead.

Blues Festival founder Keven Oxford has handed the reins to Peter Noble and a new partner, tipped to be famous Australian promoter Michael Chugg.

Both will run the festival again next April at the Red Devils football field at Byron Bay.

Chugg has promoted a number of touring Australian and international acts, including Bob Dylan, REM, The Who, Tina Arena and Guy Sebastian.
