Delta Rae is only one of many bands who can’t wait to come to Australia and Bluesfest. It’s so good to 'hear' our artists being as excited as the rest of us! Check it out:
OMG, the stalls. They are the best.
This year’s Bluesfest is tastier than ever with Charlies Juices, Grilld Burger Park and Guzman Y Gomez, joining our long term local favourites. Travel through the cuisines of Yemen, Lebanese, German, Hungarian, Malaysian, Vietnamese, French, Indian & Mexican delights and of course the fresh smoothies, and the irresistible corn on the cob.
Oh and lest we forget the infamous Byron organic doughnuts and putting the food aside, how about all the market stalls? We have a vast range of unique stalls to tickle the shopper in everyone! You can spend hours eating and shopping at Bluesfest, that’s for sure.
There are a total of 52 market stalls and 50 food stalls to keep you satisfied and entertained.
We are very proud to be a fully licensed Festival.
You will be able to wet your palettes in our amazing bars – 5 all up, including 1 VIP bar.
For the first time you will be able to buy a selection of top quality poured spirit drinks, vintage sparkling wine (oh, how we love the bubbles!), cider, and craft beer on tap, all at the 'Garden Bar'. And to top it all off, this is a cash bar - no drink tickets required! How good is that?!

Peter Noble, your Festival Director is excited:
It is SO exciting to be at the Bluesfest site and to see the build – just yesterday the circus tent people starting loading in - everything is coming along brilliantly, and the weather gods have been extremely kind.
You can feel the buzz in the office and preparations are getting almost to a fever pitch, however, in our office, there is no yelling and screaming – just a quiet determination to deliver a brilliant Bluesfest in Byron – and a great experience on all our 109 shows occurring around Australia and New Zealand over the coming weeks.
Artists are contacting and advising their excitement – and many in the media, of whom a large amount have been coming for many years, have advised me this is their favourite Bluesfest artist bill yet.
I can’t help but catch the energy – it is something that energises me, and makes me want to be a part of Bluesfest forever. This is going to be one of our GREAT years.
Welcome – and enjoy!
For those of you who haven’t made your mind up yet – see what the buzz is all about – although we are starting to get pretty full on some nights – there’s still room – so what are you waiting for?
Last but not least – a note on Tickets:
