We didn’t think that Bluesfest could get any more colossal but we were very wrong. The legendary festival has just announced four new additions to its already chock-a-block lineup. Last month it was announced that seminal Jack White-fronted band The Raconteurs would be making their debut Australian appearance at Bluesfest.

Now, the festival has reached even greater heights with the addition of four fantastic Australian and International acts.

First cab off the ranks is the inimitable Tash Sultana, following the release of her luscious debut album Flow State. Tash will be bringing her psychedelic blues and roots stylings to the Bluesfest stage for what is destined to be an unforgettable performance.

New Zealand five-piece SIX60 will be gracing Australian shores with their soulful, pop stylings.

Sydney’s reggae-fusion favourites Ocean Alley are sure to bring the vibes with their infectious surf-rock responsibilities.

Finally, Amaru Tribe, a collective of Melbourne-based artists from Australia, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Venezuela will take audiences on a ride with their melting-pot of flavours.
