Bluesfest is just 100 sleeps away

BLUESFEST is no longer 'next year' - it's THIS year and only 100 days away - Can you believe it?

This year is the 25th Silver Anniversary of the Byron Bay festival, and will once again be bringing some of the biggest names in music to our region for the five day event. 

With a line up already including Jack Johnson, John Mayer, the John Butler Trio, Dave Matthews Band, Jeff Beck and Elvis Costello and The Imposters, the 6th line up announcement is scheduled for Wednesday January 15.

The team at Bluefest have even said that this year's festival was attracting more 5 day ticket buyers than ever before.

In a newsletter the team said this:

"Coupled with Camping (ie as a Buddy Package which includes Festival and camping) the 5 day ticket is the hottest seller and if there was a Bluesfest (Guinness) book of records, 2014 would be breaking all previous numbers."

"We had to recalculate our daily allocations to accommodate this huge demand a few times."

Tickets are available here  if you're hoping to get your groove on.
