Bluesfest has expanded the 2015 line-up with new additions Charles Bradley & his Extraordinaires.

The pre-Christmas announcement doesn’t include the big names but many of the interesting ones.

Bluesfest Festival Director Peter Noble said, “All these artists are so great in their own way, but I would just like to point out a couple – Declan Kelly’s Diesel n’Dub – delivering the songs of Midnight Oil in a Reggae dub style featuring some of the greats of Aussie Roots and Indigenous music includingEmma Donovan, Alex Lloyd, Pat Powell, Radical Son, Tony Hughes from King Tide – and many more to be announced – with a big band backing them up – it’s going TO BE SOMETHING – a don’t miss. If you have been listening to the album you’ll know what I am talking about.

“Karl S. Williams, for me, has delivered one of the great Aussie albums this year – every track is a knockout – an astonishing debut that has HUGE FUTURE written all over it – I love discovering artists who have that special IT – the Zeitgeist – watch out for Karl!

“And Augie March in my opinion, have just delivered their best album of their career – we welcome this major Australian talent back to Bluesfest”.
