Bluesfest Touring is bringing an explosive double bill to Australia next year, led by Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats.
Mixing classic rock ‘n’ roll attitude with lovely touches of country and soul, Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats will make their long-awaited return Down Under next year for the first time since 2019.
For their Bluesfest Touring shows, they’ll perform at Melbourne’s Forum on Monday, April 10th and Thursday, April 13th at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Thursday, April 13th (see full details below).
They’ll be joined by St. Paul and The Broken Bones for the two shows, with the eight-piece soul outfit making their return to Bluesfest.
The Alabama-born ensemble released their latest album, The Alien Coast, earlier this year, capturing the band at their adventurous best.
The first artists for Bluesfest 2023 were announced back in September, featuring a strong mix of international stars and local festival favourites. The 40-strong list included Elvis Costello & the Imposters, Lucinda Williams, Gang of Youths, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, and many, many more.
