Set in the beautiful hinterland of northern NSW, the Byron Bay Bluesfest is an internationally renowned blues and roots music festival held each year during the Easter long weekend.

With more than 200 performances across seven stages over five days, the festival showcases music from around the world, and in previous years has boasted the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and James Brown on the bill.

This year, Billy Bragg, Patti Smith, Santana and The Doobie Brothers will join legendary local favourites such as Neil Finn and Kasey Chambers in an impressive lineup of more than 85 music acts.

Since its humble beginnings in 1990, Bluesfest has won numerous tourism and music accolades and now attracts more than 100,000 festival goers over the long weekend. Held on 120 picturesque hectares at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, 11 kms from Byron, Bluesfest is a family-friendly event, with children’s entertainment and a daily kids’ program on offer.
