In a statement, Festival Director Peter Noble said, “I am thrilled to say that our headliners on this announcement have almost 100,000,000 album sales between them. Household names, R&B funk masters, Kool & the Gang are the winners of two GRAMMY Awards and with 70,000,000 album sales – their performance this Easter Saturday is going to be a standout! The Gipsy Kings, the creators of flamenco rumba with one GRAMMY Award plus a Latin GRAMMY Award and with 25,000,000 album sales it makes for a stellar third artist announcement for Bluesfest 2020.

Everyone knows the songs immediately when they hear the first few chords of Kool’s ‘Celebration’, ‘Ladies Night’ or ‘Get Down On It’ or The Gipsy Kings ‘Bamboleo’, ‘Djobi Djoba’, ‘Bem Bem Maria’ and so many more. AND, they are both playing our main stage on Saturday night at Bluesfest with George Benson, back to back – what a night of hits this will be!

We’re lucky enough to have Guy Sebastian are his two incredible ARIA Award wins last week. The mighty Allen Stone, a real-deal Bluesfest favourite who is becoming another breakout star following his numerous appearances over the years. Dweezil Zappa will be playing his Dad’s brilliant record ‘Hot Rats’. Winner of the European Guitarist of the Year – ErjaLyytinen, Australia’s greatest ever blues band – Chain and so much more. Stay tuned for another lot of amazing additions for what is fast becoming one of our greatest lineup’s ever!”
