Leading our first announcement: an *Exclusive* Bluesfest ONLY show by Hawaiian singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, Bluesfest’s prodigal son. Jack Johnson is making a long-awaited return to Bluesfest; having first played in 2001 – and most recently at our 25th birthday bash back in 2014.
Jack Johnson grew up surfing and playing guitar in Hawaii. Since 2001, he has released 7 studio albums and 2 live albums that have sold over 25 million copies worldwide. Jack’s latest album, All The Light Above it Too, released in September 2017 debuted #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. His Brushfire Records label and touring crew have been leaders in the greening of the music industry and his All At Once social action network connects fans with local non-profits at each tour stop.
Jack, with his wife Kim, founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation to support environmental education in Hawaii's schools and communities, as well as the Johnson Ohana Foundation to support environmental, art and music education worldwide. Jack Johnson’s album, tour profits, and personal philanthropic activities have resulted in over $30 million donated to charity since 2001. For the first time since 2014, Jack Johnson hit the road for his All The Light Above it Too tour, stopping at scenic venues across North America, South America, Australia and New Zealand.
