Bluesfest Byron Bay’s 30th anniversary is just around the corner, hosting a slew of some of the world’s most legendary rock, folk and roots artists.

Although taking a 5-day break in the picturesque rolling green hills of Byron sounds incredible, it simply isn’t an option for some.

But never fear – a bunch of the festivals most exciting artists will be making stops in most of the major cities during their time down under, making it easy for you to catch them in all their glory.

From the Godfather of Punk himself Iggy Pop to underrated rock gems Vintage Trouble, Bluesfest sideshows offer up an array of vast experiences that any music lover can sink their teeth into.
