Blues on Broadbeach has revealed its initial 2024 program. 

One of Australia’s largest music festivals, Blues on Broadbeach is returning to the Gold Coast next year for four unmissable days of live music, taking place between May 16th-19th.

The festival’s first lineup drop features three prominent US artists, including two Grammy nominees.

Blues favourites Melissa Etheridge, Samantha Fish & Jesse Dayton, Ana Popovic, and Eric Bibb are headliners in 2024, alongside returning Aussie guitarist and singer-songwriter Lloyd Spiegel.

“We have truly embraced some heavy hitting blues rock acts for the 2024 first lineup including some of the world’s best female blues guitarists,” says Festival Director Mark Duckworth.

“We had so much fun putting together this year’s lineup, and can’t wait to see Melissa Etheridge and Ana Popovic set the Blues on Broadbeach stage alight.

“Add in Samantha Fish & Jesse Dayton performing their Death Wish Blues Tour and multi-Grammy Award-winning bluesman Eric Bibb and we’ve got an unmissable four days of live music, and that’s just the first four names on the poster.”
