Bluesfest Announces October 2021 Line-up With The Oils, Kelly and Barnes

Midnight Oil, Jimmy Barnes, Paul Kelly and Tash Sultana will headline the four day revival of Bluesfest in October 2021.

Bluesfest was shutdown over Easter by the New South Wales government with zero notice and at the 11th hour after one Covid positive case was in the area. It put punters and artists out of pocket with artists losing much needed income after a rock solid gig after hardly being supported by the loops to get into the Jobkeeper program during lockdown. NB: A week later, the New South Wales government did not apply the same caution when another case surfaced in Sydney.

But I digress…

The All-Aussie Bluesfest 2021 October Edition line-up now features Midnight Oil.

Here is the line-up:
