4 Weeks to Go Video

Hi everyone,

You can feel the energy rising around the Bluesfest office. It’s 4 weeks and one day until we open our gates for our 35th festival. We are excited!

The site is beginning to receive the infrastructure that will soon be built for you. The brilliant team who put on the event are preparing the site, and we can’t wait to welcome you.

Artists are excited to be coming to what is, for many, their favourite festival, and hopefully yours too.

If you are camping from Thursday (3-day camping) or for the whole 5 days, you are welcome to arrive Wednesday to set up.

Yet again, we will be presenting a concert from around 6 pm, Wednesday 27 March on the Delta stage. Stall holders will have food available, and bars will be open in that area.

We have never seen the demand so high in the past from people to stay on-site, whether in Glamping, tent motels, Tipis, or Large Vehicle areas.

Our family camping area has been greatly accepted.

Not only is camping the best way to experience Bluesfest, as you can set up, go through the playing schedule, and see the artists you wish to. Once you wish to take a break, you can return to camp and put your feet up.

We know you love coming to Bluesfest, and we acknowledge and thank you for your support; we are attempting to keep costs down wherever possible in these times whilst still presenting the talent you love to see and hear.

Thank you to everyone who has bought a ticket to date, and as for everyone else, you are more than welcome to attend one of Australia’s greatest festivals next Easter; it’s only a month away.

See you soon
