Patti Smith, The Lumineers, Bonnie Raitt, Snarky Puppy & Andrew Bird lead first Bluesfest sideshow announcement!

New week, new tours. The 2017 Byron Bay Bluesfest has come out with their first round of sideshows and as far as initial touring announcements go, they’ve done pretty well, with the likes of Patti SmithBonnie Raitt and The Lumineers locking down some impressive Australian headline shows.

South Australians and Queenslanders miss out on this round of announcements unfortunately, with the artists heading to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra next April but with the Bluesfest line up only continuing to grow, chances are more opportunities for those of us who can’t get to Byron over Easter next year will be cropping up.
