Two of Bluesfest’s top billers have announced Australian headline shows for April.

If you’re not able to get out to the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm for Bluesfest 2020 next Easter, the touring minds behind the mammoth event have got you sorted.

Both Brandi Carlile and George Benson have announced their sideshows today, leading the sideshow charge strong.

Guitar icon Benson will be hitting Sydney’s State Theatre and Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, marking a decade since his last Australian tour. The 77 year old will be bringing one of the most celebrated discographies in Soul and Jazz through for these shows – absolutely unmissable.
