At Bluesfest we had a ball gathering 25 reasons that makes Bluesfest the fun and unique Festival it is.

We have also put together 6 major reasons why it’s time to drop everything and buy your tickets now if you have not already done so!

Book Tickets NOW!



  1. Early Bird tickets are over 97% sold out, so are all the Super Special priced tickets and another price increase is imminent. We really want everyone to have a chance to save money on their ticket. If you want to wait until we announce, that is of course fine, but please know that prices are going to be increasing by up to 50% and we are amidst working on a line up which will have you jumping up and down with joy! 
  2. Tickets will not be at this low price again. A 5 Day Ticket at $445 p/p is only $89 per day and a 3 Day Ticket currently costs only $285 p/p which is only $95 per day.
  3. Once the artist announcements start rolling out you will kick yourself that you have not bought your tickets early and saved some big dollars. There are some amazing and big names on the cards already!


  4. Should you not live in the area, the flights to the Gold Coast or Ballina/Byron airport are still cheap. If camping at Bluesfest is not for you, there are some great bargains to be had visit our  Blues accommodation page here .
  5. Once you have your tickets you can look forward to all the upcoming announcements, knowing you have made your decision already: You are going!! You will come to realise how much money you saved when you start to take on board the artists who will be playing. We roll out up to 8 announcements and they are all special and packed with surprises. Everyone loves getting a bargain and a Bluesfest ticket certainly is one right now.
