BLUESFEST IS BUSTLING!

BLUESFEST EXCLUSIVES, UB40 QLD SHOW ANNOUNCE, THE BLOG IS BACK & MORE!

Hello [Name,fallback=Friend],

Before we unleash our second artist announcement for Bluesfest 2017 we want to give you, whether you have purchased a ticket or not, the opportunity to find out about some of the artists we have announced so far.

Keep reading to see which artists are performing exclusively at our Easter fiesta (by exclusively, we mean you will not be able to see them anywhere else around Australia), plus the return artists that are getting everyone talking!

Also keep reading for the latest news from Bluesfest Touring including the announcement that Ali Campbell’s UB40 ft. Astro & Mickey Virtue are coming back to Australia including the only Queensland show at Sandstone Point Hotel at Bribie Island on Sunday 15th January 2017!

BLUESFEST TICKET ALERT!

It sure has been a ‘5 day ticket race’, since the first artist announcement hit the streets just under two weeks ago.

The 5 day ticket sales have now surpassed the 3 day tickets and the 1 day tickets by a long mile.

It’s not surprising because at $104 per day for a 5 day ticket, it’s the best value for money a ticket can buy! You get to see all your favourite artists if you wish, but you can also take a break here and there, without feeling you are missing out!

Bluesfest is a 5 day festival but be aware: the 5 day allocations are running out quick, and we can only sell a certain number of 5 day tickets overall, to allow enough room for our 3 day and 1 day visitors to attend Bluesfest as well.

Already purchased tickets but want to upgrade to a 5 day pass?

For those of you who have already locked in a 3 day ticket but have now seen the incredible line-up and want to go everyday (why wouldn't you!) it is absolutely fine to upgrade to a 5 day ticket! You will just have to pay the price difference between a 3 day and 5 day ticket.*

*You pay the difference between your original purchased 3 day ticket and the newly priced 5 day ticket. New ticket purchased, old ticket refunded – immediately.  Call our friendly team on 02 6685 8310 who can help you with this!

There are so many more amazing, incredible, gifted artists to be announced and we are beyond excited.

Check out all the current ticket prices and packages right here and don’t forget we have a layby / Time to Pay ticket option that is super popular! Click here to find out more about paying off your tickets over 3 months.

Expect no less at his two exclusive performances at Bluesfest in 2017!

One of the greatest gospel, soul and blues singers of all time!

Fans of the one and only Mavis Staples will be delighted the rock and roll hall of famer is returning in 2017 for FOUR exclusive Bluesfest performances! Mavis has managed to remain a leading voice in a career that has spanned over 60 years. For a taste of what to expect from Mavis, check out what the Sydney Morning Herald had to say about her last performance in Australia in 2015;

"...at 75 her voice is still so mighty that if you built a church to house it you would want the ceiling to vault up to the heavens so as not to risk the roof being blown off" SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
