It’s been so heart-warming to read all the wonderful feedback about this year’s festival from you, the media and from the artists who made Bluesfest 2017 one we will remember forever!

Here are some of our favourite quotes so far…

From facebook:


''One of the best weeks of my whole life!'' - Jackie Dowling

''Makes me want to do it all over again! So many great bands, spoilt for choice'' – Jenny Deggan

''Feel so privileged to have been part of this ... yes and Patti brought me to tears. AMAZING'' – Margaret Ryan

From artists


“This is one of the world class, great festivals of all time”Bonnie Raitt

“What a night! Byron Bay blew us away, thank you for singing louder than the PA” – The Doobie Brothers

“Backstage is like a Rock n Roll fantasy camp, especially seeing such a female presence around has been incredible”Nikki Hill

“This is our favourite festival in the world and we’ll come back every year if you let us”Paul Janeway (St. Paul and The Broken Bones)

From the media:


As, with the festival, there is no one sound, style, genre or artist. Bluesfest, despite its name, is an eclectic beast, one which strives to find and showcase the best in roots music, and this is a wide umbrella – as such, it heaves and thrashes, a multi-limbed beast, eclectic, one that doesn’t just tick a single box, but dozens.” Rolling Stone

''Bluesfest is Christmas on the music calendar for Aussies who await the week-long revelry with bated breath; some of the worlds best musos are summoned to our shores for one glorious run of bloody good times and tunes.'' – Best Before

“This is Bluesfest, which exists for and because people love music so much it bruises their soul.” - Scenstr
