This is the festival’s 8th nomination for the award. The second is for Best Overseas Festival in the UK Festival Awards. Bluesfestis nominated with international heavyweights including Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Lollapalooza Berlin and Roskilde Festival. Australians can vote for Bluesfest to win this illustrious award here.
It was a big week for the festival, with a limited number of single day festival tickets put on sale, due to overwhelming demand. With only one announcement so far, the individual days already feature an incredible line up of artists – and there’s more to come.
