Bluesfest 2013....


Today Bluesfest, Australia’s multi award winning Festival, held annually over the long Easter Weekend (March 28 to April 1) announced an addition to its already sensational Line-Up for 2013!

Paul Simon, multi-award and 13 time Grammy winner, has today been added to the supreme Bluesfest line-up of 2013.

Simon will be performing at Bluesfest on Easter Monday but there is more! Festival goers are in for a double treat: Taking the stage before Paul Simon will be the hugely gifted Canadian singer/songwriter & composer Rufus Wainwright.

The 2013 Bluesfest bill is truly shaping up to be the biggest one yet.

Already headlining the incredible Bluesfest 2013 bill are Robert Plant, the legendary front man of band Led Zeppelin presenting the Sensational Space Shifters, Latin Jazz Rockers Santana, Bluesfest favourite Ben Harper, ex Supertramp singer/song writer Roger Hodgson, reggae icon Jimmy Cliff, punk rock innovators Iggy & The Stooges, awe inspiring rock band Wilco, R & B star Mavis Staples, Sixto “Sugarman’ Rodriguez and so many more.

Peter Noble, Bluesfest Director says:

“Adding Paul Simon to Bluesfest 2013 is pretty mind blowing, even for me, your Festival Director.

I knew the line-up was going to be massive, but it just keeps getting bigger. So many incredible artists are going to perform at Bluesfest, it really is every Festival Director’s dream come true and I am so humbled.

Announcing Robert Plant a couple of weeks ago and now adding Paul Simon, it’s like: Wow…we are really doing it this time and I actually think we are breaking all previous records.

This is going to be the best Bluesfest of all time and guess what?

There are at least another 4 announcements to come featuring major artists."

The 24th Bluesfest will take place between Thursday 28th of March and Monday 1st of April 2013 at Bluesfest’s permanent home at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm just outside of Byron Bay.
