One of Australia’s largest music festivals, Blues on Broadbeach, is proud to announce its second line-up for its 21st year, adding amazing artists with a good chunk of them being female.

Headliners The James Morrison Motown Experience, Robben Ford and R.L. Boyce are now being joined by Karise Eden, Osaka Monaurail, Blue Empress All-Stars, Matty T Wall and many more.

This insane collection of both Aussie and international artists will take over the Gold Coast over four days from May 19-22.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate says that this could not come at a better time for Queensland and will hopefully provide a ray of sunshine amidst dark times for the state.

“It’s been a tough couple of weeks for SE Queensland and other parts of the east coast with the recent floods so it’s nice to be sharing some good news, and music certainly has a way of putting a smile on people’s faces and bringing us together.”

“We’re so excited for this year’s Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival,” Tate continued. “By the looks of the artist line-up, 2022 is going to be bigger and better than ever.”

Mark Duckworth, the festival Director, has said that this year’s Blues on Broadbeach Festival is all about returning to its roots.
