Australia’s Premier Blues and Roots Festival Byron Bay Bluesfest has announced an eclectic range of international artists to appear at the 27th annual festival in Byron Bay over the 2016 Easter long weekend. Perma-tanned Tom Jones heads an announcement including Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Jackson Browne, The Decemberists, The Wailers and Tweedy, (Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer).
Previous artists announced include UB40, The National and The Cat Empire.
Apparently The Wailers will be playing a different Bob Marley and The Wailers album each night including Survival, Exodus, and Legend. Byron Bay will no doubt become a seething, grooving, Jah-praisin sea of reggae, blues and roots revival next Easter!
