The 2018 Bluesfest line up has been rounded out with the last-minute addition of celebrated Soul singer Leon Bridges and a handful of other gifted artists.
Since arriving on the scene with his Grammy nominated album ‘Coming Home’ in 2015, Bridges has become one of the most beloved and critically acclaimed singers of his generation. With two sold out Australian tours under his belt, there is no doubt audiences here are hungry for more of his incredible talent.
He’s an up and coming rock star with the voice of an angel, who counts Ed Sheeran among his biggest fans, so it’s with great excitement that Bluesfest welcomes Ryan McMullan to the festival in 2018.
The huge voice of Clarence Bekker is heading back to Bluesfest in 2018! Bekker is a singer and songwriter of Soul and Reggae music; and a vocalist in Playing for Change. From 2009, he had toured the world with a message of peace through music in more than 300 concerts, including many celebrated performances at Bluesfest.
Tay Oskee won the Byron Bay Busking comp in 2017, so organisers are delighted to welcome him back with a spot on their line up in 2018. Tay is a multi-instrumentalist playing a variety of guitars, banjo, harmonica and percussion. With a musical style that is wide and varied Tay can take you on a journey from chilled beach tunes to punchy riff driven roots music with distinctive multicultural influences.
She wowed everyone who saw her Busking Comp sets and went on to take the Grommet Busking Prize home in 2017, there is no doubt Molly Millington is a force to be reckoned with! Molly fuses country and folk with a little quirky pop to create dark, yet playful tunes
Music lovers from across Australia will visit the beautiful Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just outside Byron Bay over the Easter long weekend (Thursday 29th March to Monday 2nd April 2018) for the 29th Annual Bluesfest. During the Festival they will enjoy 12 hours of music each day on multiple stages, incredible food and market stalls and on site camping in a range of accommodation options.
