As the festival edges ever closer, Bluesfest has added another stellar collection of artists to its already packed 2023 lineup.
18 new acts have been announced today, including ‘European royalty’ Dami Im, who saw her hit song, “Sound of Silence”, chart around the world, and viral sensations Steve’n’Seagulls.
You can check out all 18 new artists – plus the full Bluesfest 2023 lineup – below. The likes of Beck, Gang of Youths, Elvis Costello, Paolo Nutini, and The Doobie Brothers are already confirmed to be playing the iconic blues and roots festival this year.
“With this Bluesfest announcement for Bluesfest 2023, it is becoming clear that the return of international live artists mixed with great Aussie and Kiwi talent will be seen for the first time in Australia at the level it was before the COVID years,” festival director Peter Noble explained in a statement.
“The line-up is one that I am immensely proud of and 2023 is becoming one of the great Bluesfests. Thank you so much everyone for your support through the hard years, please now come and join us for the celebration.”
Bluesfest is set to take place on Thursday, April 6th until Monday, April 10th. Tickets are still available for the festival via the official website.
