Bluesfest boss Peter Noble has delegated his day to day role at Australia’s biggest music festival to become Executive Chairman of the company with Steve Romer stepping in to take the Chief Operating Officer role.

Romer has long been associated with live events for the past 30 years, most recently in the CEO position of Venue Management Association (Asia and Pacific).

Peter Noble has had an active role in building Bluesfest to its position of one of the world’s greatest music festivals. He says he will still focus on booking acts for the event.

“We are proud to make the announcement that Steve is joining the Bluesfest group of companies, and will be overseeing operations across the annual festival in Byron Bay, Bluesfest Touring and the company’s land holdings,” Peter said in a statement. “Bluesfest has become a major player and I believe the recent additions to our dynamic team of Steve and Simone Twiss as Chief Financial Officer will allow us to continue confidently into the future.

“I am also announcing that I am moving to the position of Executive Chairman and will continue to focus on booking talent as well as acquisitions that will take Bluesfest into an exciting new era.”

Steve Romer commented, “I am excited to be joining the team at the iconic Bluesfest Byron Bay, and looks forward to working closely with Festival Director Peter Noble OAM.”

Bluesfest 2018 will feature Robert Plant, Jackson Browne, Chic, Seal, Lionel Richie and Youssou N’dour.
