After a record year in 2019, Bluesfest Touring is back and ready to make 2020 bigger than ever after dropping the news that three Grammy Award winning acts will be taking to stages across Australia and New Zealand in early 2020.

Mavis Staples is living, breathing history and to say we are excited to announce that she will be returning to her second home in Australia to play Brisbane this March is an understatement! She is an icon of her time. From her gospel days with her family band, The Staple Singers, and her active role in the Civil Rights movement, to chart-topping R&B success in the ’70s and now a successful, Grammy-winning solo artist, Mavis Staples really is one of the last true Ladies of Soul. Read more on Mavis Staples here.

One of the world’s greatest guitarists, George Benson is coming to Melbourne and Sydney for headline shows this April ahead of his performance at Bluesfest Byron Bay. The Grammy Award winner will be performing a selection of his classic hits including ‘Give Me the Night’, ‘Turn Your Love Around’ and ‘Nothings Gonna Change My Love For You’ plus a couple of new favourites from his latest album, ‘Walking to New Orleans’. Find out more about George Benson’s Australian tour here. Stay tuned for our interview with George soon too

Amid a landmark year – taking home three Grammy Awards in February, Brandi Carlile has locked in headline shows for Melbourne and Sydney this April. Carlile is currently touring in celebration of her GRAMMY Award winning album, ‘By The Way, I Forgive You’.
