Eagles of Death Metal, Mick Fleetwood To Play Bluesfest

in Live,News

The Bluesfest 2016 line-up is completely locked in with The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band and Eagles of Death Metal rounding up this year’s bill.

Festival boss Peter Noble is pumped to get Fleetwood on the bill. “Wow…..Mick Fleetwood’s Blues Band doing the early songs of Fleetwood Mac, when they were a Blues Band, plus current Blues Award nominee for Best Contemporary Blues album, Eugene Hideaway Bridges. Then add Australia’s two greatest Blues bands ever, Chain and the Backsliders, Playing For Change, who continue through their good work and constant touring to build music schools in third world countries for young people to learn instruments, and literally play their way out of poverty, and showing great bravery to get out on the road, the Eagles of Death Metal – that’s an announcement. I have lost count, I think that’s our ninth, and of course, the other artists announced in this one are cracking too.

Other final additions announced today were Chain, Playing For Change, Eugene ‘Hideaway’ Bridges’, Backsliders, Digging Roots, Frazey Ford, Marshall Okell, Sahara Beck and Emma Donovan.

Bluesfest 2016 is on March 24 to 28 in Byron Bay, New South Wales.
