On the 7th of October, at the Australian Event Awards held at Sydney’s Olympic Park, Bluesfest won the top and most prestigious prize of the night, The 2010 Australian Event of the Year.
Earlier in the night we secured the award for Best Cultural or Arts Event and were already immensely proud to emerge over prestigious finalists such as the 17th Biennale of Sydney and WOMADelaide 2010.
To win the 2010 Australian Event of the year award, we were up against all winners of their events category and we are talking major events like the Sydney 2009 World Masters Games, Sydney Royal Easter Show, Sydney New Years Eve celebrations 2009, Sydney International FIFA Fan Fest, Australian Open Tennis 2010, Microsoft Tech. Ed 2009, 2010 Good Food & Wine Show at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre – and many more.
