“There are so many other great Australian and International artists coming to perform, including the most requested artist to return to Bluesfest after their show-stopping 2022 performance: The Teskey Brothers.” says Festival Director Peter Noble.

“Special mention to wunderkind blues guitarist and singer Taj Farrant, who, at the age of 14 years, has almost one million Facebook followers and just secured the number one single on the iTunes Blues chart worldwide; he is going to be a superstar.

This is only our first announcement, with so many more to come… Please come and join us on our 35th Birthday for another memorable edition of Bluesfest Byron Bay.”

Three and five-day tickets to Bluesfest 2024 are on sale now via the official website. Check out our review of Bluesfest 2023 here.
