Here are some of the amazing reviews from the media about last week’s announcement:
Bluesfest continues to grow, with the addition of some first-class talent. Leading the charge comes legendary Australian songwriter Neil Finn, who will take the stage with his band to close out the festival in a career-spanning set. – Beat.com.au
(Neil Finn) The beloved frontman will be joining the blues extravaganza – The Music
BLUESFEST'S lineup has gotten an exciting new addition in the form of Neil Finn and his band. Finn, along with his bands Split Enz and Crowded House are responsible for some of Australia's most beloved songs including 'Don't Dream It's Over', 'I Got You', 'Something So Strong', 'Better Be Home Soon', 'Weather With You' and 'Four Seasons in One Day'. – Byron News
Here’s what our friends on Facebook had to say:
The Vintage Trouble boys are back in town on Saturday ... you bloody beauty. Prepare to be spellbound. Don't miss them - Garry Jacobson
Vintage Trouble were awesome last year, great announcement! And Neil Finn, no words other than brilliant ... - Troy Brown
Vintage Trouble and St. Paul and the Broken bones were standouts, they were absolute revelations in 2016. Not bad given the rest of the line up. I'll be there again. - Joshua Geffen
And there were some very happy forum members too
I agree, this is a fantastic lineup. So many brilliant artists for me to see there are going to be too many clashes. My favs are, Miles Electric Band, this is going to be a dream come true after seeing Miles live in 1986. Dumpstaphunk, with 2 bass players it's gonna get greasy. Mud Morganfield blues royalty. Roy Ayers, jazz funk at its best. Snarky Puppy, gonna blow ya mind with their brilliance. Vasti Jackson, blues on fire. Eric Gales, guitar slinger. Booker T, California Honeydrops, and so many more. Thank you Bluesfest for doing a wonderful job. You have excelled yourself! – Valkrie
Always a great lineup and this year is looking as good as any I've been to in the last 18 years. Especially happy to see Ivy back this year for some hard rockin' blues. – Little Willie
