Bluesfest is truly on its way!
With the New Year still lingering the air, we would like to wish you a wonderful and happy 2014.
Now that 2014 is truly on its way, Bluesfest is no longer 'next year' - it's THIS year and only 100 days away.
We are rocking and rolling into our 25th Silver Anniversary Festival very fast and can't wait to be celebrating it with YOU - our special Bluesfest friend.
Bluesfest has been entertaining young and old since 1990.
This year will once again see the biggest names in the field of music, bundled up in a 5 day Festival journey which brings friends and family together, as well as forms new friendships for life.
Don't miss out on this amazing experience!

Festival & Camping Tickets:
The upcoming 25th anniversary Festival is attracting more 5 day ticket buyers than ever before.
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. This was as much a pleasure as a challenge to do, but since we can only welcome so many people per day, it means we had to reduce the single day entries!
So, if you want to come for just one day, lock in that day now, especially if you are thinking of coming to Bluesfest on Good Friday (April 18) or Easter Saturday (April 19). Those days are selling through the roof.

Time to pay:
With the Festival fast approaching we have to cease the popular 'Time to pay' option on the 15th of January!
At the moment you can still pay off your ticket over 3 easy payments which makes it a bit easier on the finances!
||Day of order
||28 days after 1st payment

They are becoming increasingly popular every year and as already advised before Christmas, we are excited to be opening an additional VIP bar to the long standing one. Way to go!
The new VIP bar is located in the lower level of the new double storey VIP venue and will be open to all existing VIP ticket holders from opening to midnight.
We have put a new allocation of VIP tickets on sale before Christmas and they are selling out very quickly, so if you are looking for that little extra, don't wait any longer.
For all you Festival goers, who are not choosing the VIP option: Please know we have not reduced the bars on site, we simply added to what is already there.
At Bluesfest we like to think that every single one of you is a VIP - no matter what!
