Brian Wilson, Taj Mahal and more added to 2016 Bluesfest lineup.

The legends are lining up for the Byron Bay festival next Easter. When Kendrick Lamar was added to the bill a few weeks ago, it seemed that the line up was as solid as it could ever be. Yet as always, the Bluesfest organisers keep pulling rabbits (or dare we say Easter Bunnies) out of their hat.
Announced this morning were two all-time greats, Brian Wilson (performing Pet Sounds) and  Taj Mahal, along with avant-garde American collective The Residents presenting Shadowland on their 40th Anniversary tour. Plus there’s Nathaniel Ratecliff & The Night Sweats and Shooglenifty.
