If you can’t make it up to Byron Bay for Bluesfest next year, don’t fret too much, with a bunch of this year’s names making their way to you instead.

Back in August, the world of Aussie music looked on in shock as Bluesfest organisers dropped a stunning lineup that would rival even the festivals that come to you in your dreams.

With the likes of Patti Smith, Crowded House, and the Dave Matthews Band on offer, things only got better when names like Lenny Kravitz, Jimmie Vaughan, and Eagles Of Death Metal joined the ranks.

While we’ve already seen a few of these acts announce some extra shows for while they’re in town, the time has come for the annual batch of sideshows to arrive, with some pretty huge names set to play headline gigs next year.

Check out ‘Nobody Told Me’ by John Mayall:

Yes, eager punters will be lucky enough to catch headline sets from the likes of Buffy Sainte Marie, Eagles Of Death Metal, John Mayall, Larkin Poe, Marcus King Band, Morcheeba, The War And Treaty, and Walter Trout in April of 2020.

While some of these acts will only be performing a pair of headline dates along the way, others, including John Mayall and The War And Treaty, will be ensuring their fans are taken care of with a bunch of dates added to the roster.

All of these artists can also be found performing huge sets at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm in Byron Bay next April, but if you can’t make it (or want to double your fun), be sure to check out all the pertinent details below.

Tickets to all of these shows go on sale from 10am local time on Monday, November 4th through Bluesfest Touring, while a pre-sale kicks off at 10am AEDT (or local time) on Thursday, October 31st.
