THIS IS BLUESFEST 2021 – 85% SOLD OUT & TICKETS SELLING FAST – AND ONLY 3 WEEKS TO GO!
In 3 weeks more than 65 top aussie artists will gather on our Bluesfest site at the Byron Events Farm (formerly the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm), Byron Bay Australia, to perform – FOR YOU !
All the team at Bluesfest are equal parts excited and proud that we are the ONLY major festival occurring in Australia – and possibly the world – right now, and with 15,000 daily capacity and performers, it feels like things are back to normal… almost!
Bluesfest will be a fully onsite camping, multi-day, multi-stage, undercover in big top circus tents and open-air, spectacular that will herald the return of live music at a festival level that Australia has not seen since the summer of 2019/2020.
Our ticket sales are breaking records, and we are over 85% sold out. The Sunday single day ticket is sold out, and other ticket allocations are almost exhausted. Please feel proud that with every ticket purchased, you are helping our beleaguered industry to get back to work and assist in the return of live music.
Festival Director and owner Peter Noble OAM says:
“Today is a most important day in the Bluesfest calendar. Today we announce our Bluesfest Playing Schedule. It is eagerly awaited each year, but even more so this year as it shows we are all systems go, the load-in is on – WE ARE HAPPENING !!
“It’s been a long and difficult journey from being shut down in March last year to where we are today The mantra has always been: WE ARE DOING A BLUESFEST NEXT YEAR – and here we are – 3 weeks out and ready to go!“
“I was particularly humbled to read one particular social media post:
“The fact that Bluesfest Byron Bay is the first post-pandemic music festival of this scale in the world is such an honour and special moment in time for all of us. Using your decades of knowledge and experience to tackle this head on makes our small business emotional being able to partake in such a historic moment in time. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We appreciate your dedication to live music and why we need it so badly in order to recover.” “
“When I read that sort of message, I feel like we are doing the right thing. All the effort, the late nights, the early mornings, the pain and the laughter (yes there was some over the months of lockdown) has been worth it.”
“I cannot wait to cut the tape and throw open the Bluesfest gates this year – this is going to be a special and momentous Bluesfest. Bring it on!”
