Bluesfest is grateful for the on-going cooperation and advice it has received from the NSW Ministry of Health to assist in the planning for a COVID-19 safe event. We continue to work closely with the NSW Department of Health, as well as the NSW Ministry of Health and will keep our patrons informed on a regular basis via our Mission Statement.
Q1. What will Bluesfest be like in 2021?
A/ Bluesfest’s COVID-19 Safety Plan has been approved by Government – see statement here.
In order to ensure the quality of the event and safety for patrons, artists and staff at any given moment and depending on current and changing restrictions, Bluesfest 2021 will be a new experience. We will implement various measures based on NSW Health Department guidelines including but not limited to:
- Reduced capacity to 50% of regular festival attendance
- Seated and outdoors
- Social distancing practise and signage across the full festival site
- Sanitisation stations across the full festival site and enhanced cleaning in all areas, as well as COVID-19 Safety Marshalls.
Bluesfest will keep patrons informed of the COVID-19 Safety measurements via our Bluesfest 2021 COVID-19 Safety Plan website. Keep an eye out on socials, subscribe to our newsletter or visit our website regularly for updates!
Q2. Why buy a ticket to Bluesfest this year if it’s not going to a “normal” Bluesfest experience?
A/ By buying a Bluesfest 2021 ticket now, you are investing not only into Bluesfest and its future but into the Australian Music Industry. Bluesfest is taking the lead into stepping into the future. Bluesfest is committed to presenting our event this year to ensure the music industry is coming back! Whilst Bluesfest is proud to be independent and 100% Australian owned and not funded by a multinational corporation, the Bluesfest fans are critical and fundamental to the success of the event.
Q3. What will happen to my tickets if the festival is cancelled as per Government order again in 2021?
A/ To eradicate any risk for the customer, should the event be cancelled by government, Bluesfest 2021 ticket income will be held in a locked bank account.
If the event is unable to proceed on the advertised date or location by Government order, Bluesfest reserves the right to reschedule the Event, and offer a credit or exchange to the rescheduled date, or offer a refund request window of 28 days.

A/ The camping site will be set up in accordance with the NSW government health regulations relevant at that time.
Q6. How about the toilet situation?
A/ The cleaning of these facilities will be increased as per safety and health regulations.
Q7. If the event is going to be seated do I need to bring my own chair?
A/ There is no need to bring your own seating. Bluesfest will provide all seating required.
