Hi Bluesfest Family,

We’re buzzing with excitement as the Bluesfest 2025 lineup starts to take shape, and we can hardly wait to share the full details with you. An announcement is just around the corner, and we promise it’s going to be spectacular. Stay tuned for what’s shaping up to be an unforgettable roster of talent!

At Bluesfest, magic happens not just on stage, but in the spontaneous and electrifying collaborations between artists. This year’s festival was a testament to that, leading with extraordinary performances that could only be witnessed at Bluesfest. Imagine the awe-inspiring sight of legends like Tom Jones alongside The Blind Boys of Alabama in a soul-stirring gospel set, a performance that captivated everyone in attendance. Watch the magic here:

Adding to the festival’s unique allure was Jimmy Barnes’ return show, which featured an array of special guests such as Ian Moss, Bernard Fanning, and Josh Teskey. These collaborations epitomize what we call the “magic of Bluesfest,” where you’re never quite sure who will end up on stage but you know it will be amazing.

Remember the legendary blues jam session at Bluesfest 2023 that made history? Eric Gales, Marcus King, Joe Bonamassa, and Christone “Kingfish” Ingram came together for what many hailed as one of the greatest blues jams ever seen on Australian soil. Moments like these are what make Bluesfest not just a music festival, but a landmark event where unforgettable memories are forged.

Bluesfest is undoubtedly the place where magical moments and unparalleled collaborations happen, leaving everyone talking long after the lights go down. Don’t let your friends tell you what you missed—be there to experience it all firsthand!

Early bird tickets are now on sale, so seize this opportunity to secure your spot at Bluesfest 2025 at the best possible price. We can’t wait to welcome you to what promises to be another chapter of music history in the making.

See you at the festival!

Warmest regards,

Peter Noble OAM
Chairman
Bluesfest Group of Companies

What a spectacular evening we experienced at The Green Room this past Saturday! The venue was alive with excitement as the instrumental rock trio Dirty Three concluded their tour with a breathtaking performance that lasted nearly three hours. The crowd was huge and the atmosphere was charged with energy as Warren Ellis and his band delivered a mesmerising set, featuring intense solos and unforgettable crowd sing-alongs that left everyone in awe.

The entire show was recorded live, adding an extra layer of magic to an already unforgettable evening. The night was made even more special by the presence of Eleanor Jawuringali, who opened the show and wowed the crowd with her incredible talent.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined us and contributed to making it such a memorable night. Your enthusiasm and support help make The Green Room a cornerstone for live music in our community.
