Bluesfest will take all 2017 off sale next week until the first round of artists is announced.
Ticket sales have been just incredible, and now we are announcing we are going off sale for a time before returning with our first announcement. Now is your opportunity to buy your ticket at the best possible price,” says Bluesfest boss Peter Noble. “I can tell you this, without a shadow of a doubt, Bluesfest 2017 will be one of our greatest events. This is our passion and what we live for.”
Five, three and one-day tickets, as well as camping tickets, are on sale now at a reduced price. The festival also offers “time to pay’ ticket options so that fans can budget over three months with four equal payments instead of one up front sum.
The first artist announcement for 2016 came early on 17 July 2015. You might expect that the first 2017 announcement could be sometime this month.
“Bluesfest 2017 is shaping up to be a very special year,” Peter said. “I have been travelling and meeting artist’s managers and agents in the U.S. and the U.K. recently, and I can say it’s all coming together brilliantly. Whilst I don’t always get all the artists I approach to play, this coming year, so far, is looking like one for the books.
“There isn’t one artist booked for Bluesfest that we don’t 100% believe will impress to the highest degree. From the first artist that plays on our smaller stages to our headliners, we take a deep pride in presenting the very best of the new emerging artists along with the legends.
“Our discovery artists, time and time again have grown to be headliners in their own right, and we are not afraid to take a chance in booking great new artists like St. Paul and The Broken Bones, Kaleo and Kendrick Lamar from our 2016 festival, through to the new emerging Roots and Contemporary artists we will be announcing soon.
AND, WE HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN THE LEGENDS TOO.
“We are now in the process of finalising negotiations with some of the world’s most famous artists”.
Bluesfest 2017 will be held in Byron Bay across Easter 2017, 13-17 April 2017.
