Bluesfest has decided to make their earliest lineup announcement ever and looking at the lineup we can see why.
Ben Harper is back once again. Joining him and his band will be none other than Mr Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll icon Iggy Pop and his Stooges. Santana will be electrifying crowds with his guitar. Whilst Wilco, Chris Isaak and the Steve Miller Band will keep the crowd smiling.
In the lead up to the big announcement for the Byron Bay Bluesfest 2013 lineup, festival boss Peter Noble declared that he was thrilled with the lineup for the festival. “It is going to be the best Bluesfest ever, hands down, no doubt,” Noble boasted. “I don’t think we have ever had a year like it … The artists who have confirmed their appearances have surpassed my wildest dreams – almost everyone, who we have offered to come, has said yes! Bluesfest 2012 sold out so quickly – and next year is looking much stronger in terms of artists we are presenting.”
