2011 was another big year for Bluesfest with acts such as BB King, Grace Jones, Elvis Costello, and Jethro Tull taking the stage along with old favorites such as ZZ Top, Michael Franti, and Ben Harper. However, the of the moment was Bob Dylan, who was returning to the Byron Shire a decade after his ill-fated attempt at a concert in 2001 was rejected by Byron council and held at Ballina instead. Dylan's performance had a mixed reaction, with the ABC and Sydney Morning Herald proclaiming he let down fans with a poor show. However, the excitement at his appearance may also have expectations a little high.
See for yourself. This video shows some of his performance at Bluesfest 2011.
