In anticipation of a vibrant 2021 touring year, Bluesfest Touring has announced 14 of this year’s postponed shows will be back for 2021.

In a statement Bluesfest announce:

As restrictions begin to lift and people dream of days when we can dance again, Bluesfest Touring is thrilled to announce that (at least) fourteen of its cancelled 2020 artists will be returning in 2021.

The team has been hard at work along with artist’s management to ensure there will be a future for international touring in Australia in 2021, and with the space of a good ten to twelve months we can be confident – we will dance again!

Bluesfest Touring appreciates the patience of its valued patrons and are glad to advise that information relating to the rescheduled dates including a refund process will be communicated to patrons by the end of the day, ticket-holders are encouraged to check their inbox and spam.

So here is the list of rescheduled tours for 2021. Considering the dates, you might want to consider this a first Bluesfest 2021 announcement as well but that is unconfirmed and unannounced at this stage …but … just sayin’.
