Bluesfest are proud to welcome Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul to Byron Bay this Easter!!

With just over eight weeks to go until our 30th Anniversary Celebration here in Byron Bay, we are thrilled to announce that musician, songwriter, producer, actor, director, activist, radio DJ and one of the founding members of Bruce Springsteen’s iconic E Street Band: Steven Van Zandt is bringing his rousing Rock and Roll band;

LITTLE STEVEN AND THE DISCIPLES OF SOUL. Plus more artists to be announced across five stages over five days!

With tickets selling faster than any other Bluesfest in history, we are heading for a spectacular celebration and sell-out!

Little Steven and his powerful 14-piece band the Disciples of Soul bring their critically acclaimed “Soulfire” Tour to Byron Bay. Each show takes fans on an epic and electrifying journey through Rock and Roll history led by one of its most passionate practitioners, Little Steven.

“A rousing, blow-the-roof-off-the-sucka, 15-member ensemble that has to be seen and heard to be believed…” –

“The best bands, like this one, know they have a job to do. If you have an arse at all, they are here to kick it for you…Van Zandt’s lifetime love affair with rock n’ roll, in all its myriad forms, shines through in every note played and sung tonight. A great show.” – Hot Press
