Festival Director Peter Noble OAM
declares Bluesfest 2021 is on!
“We will find a way to continue and present in 2021. I am a veteran; having been in this incredible industry since the 60s I have never experienced such a dire situation. As a premier event we need to present another Bluesfest not only for ourselves but also for the entire entertainment industry to see that there will be a brighter day and that as an industry we will come back from this.
We are humbled by the incredible response we have received and by the outpouring of love from our ticketholders, music industry and our local community.
We are in discussions with all the agents representing the artists who were due to play this Easter on what has been our greatest bill ever. Whilst we currently don’t know ‘who’ all our headliners will be in 2021 we have received feedback from over 30 artists on this years bill confirming they are ready to reschedule for 2021. Their level of support and goodwill is inspiring and I foresee a great event to come.
2021 will be the year for everyone that cares about the arts, music and the entire entertainment industry that we all love, to come out and show their support for everyone. We call on our industry, the musicians, the agents and the managers to get in touch with us and help us show the solidarity of strength that we have as a combined force. We are all in this together and together we will go on and get through these troubled times.
Time is a healer and one day this will be behind us.
