The Bluesfest first announcement included Bob Dylan, B.B. King and Elvis Costello, Ben Harper and the Blind Boys of Alabama.

The second round included Grace Jones, Jethro Tull, ZZ Top, John Legend, Toots & the Maytals and Booker T.

Well, in case that wasn’t enough, Bluesfest have released a third announcement.

2011 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Leon Russell will be visiting for his first Australian tour and George Clinton and his Parliament/Funkadelic madmen will be performing a ridiculous three hour show.

Apparently there are still nearly 25 artists yet to be announced.

Insane no?
