The final touches.

More Bluesfest More Bluesfest

With just seven weeks to go until Byron Bay's annual Bluesfest, yet another huge batch of acts have today been added to the already-enormous line-up, which is led by The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band and US rock outfit, Eagles Of Death Metal.

Fleetwood will be joined at the festival by former Fleetwood Mac guitarist and singer Rick Vito along with Lenny Castellanos and Mark Johnston to perform classic tracks and blues covers, while EODM head to Australia just two months after recommencing their European tour, following the horrific Paris attacks in November, in which their concert at the Bataclan Hall came under siege. 

Other names added to the latest announcement include Playing For Change Band, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Chain and more.
