BLUES Festival goers welcomed blue skies today as the third day of Bluesfest turned into a pleasant day.

As the first act of the day in the new Lotus Palace, Thelma Plum was a hit with fans queuing up to see her perform in the intimate venue.

Punters have been able to dry out today, with temperatures rising into the high 20s and no rain in sight.
America's Sweet Honey in the Rock turned the Crossroad stage into a gospel revival, while Grace Potter and Wilco rocked Mojo.

The sell-out festival continues tonight with the Dropkick Murphys, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, The Beards and Robert Plant.
