Bluesfest: Bigger & Better for 2016

Thirteen hours ago the organisers of Byron Bay Bluesfest dropped a lovely Christmas announcement in our laps – an even bigger and better lineup for 2016! After the lineup began trickling out mid year our musically driven hearts were exploding out of our chests with the announcement of acts like The National, Tweedy, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kendrick Lamar and many many more. Yet this latest list of additions has us squealing in excitement with Modest Mouse tearing up the Bluesfest stage on Sunday, Kumasi Washington completing the Thursday and Saturday sets and a horde of other great musicians we are excited to see!

We know where we’ll be Easter 2016 and *spoiler alert* it’s the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm! For the full line up jump on the Bluesfest page or check it out below:
