Every year our mates at Swamp House photography make the annual pilgrimage to Byron Bay for Bluesfest.
What can only be described as Australia’s premier music festival, celebrated it’s 30th anniversary this year and it’s decided to throw a pretty big party to celebrate.
“We tried some new things and it seems they really worked! Jack White’s The Saboteurs were absolutely brilliant. There were more great Australian artists such as Tommy Emmanuel, Paul Kelly, Julia Stone, Russell Morris, incomparable Kasey Chambers and more including original Australians Yothu Yindi, Archie Roach, Baker Boy, Mission Song, Mojo Juju and many more” festival director Peter Noble said.
Although our hopes and dreams were behind Newcastle duo Bravo Victor, this year’s Busking Competition was won by Gold Coast act, Electrik Lemonade.
In what was a welcome decision for many ticket holders, parking at Bluesfest 2019 was still complimentary. In a statment, the festival organisers say they decided to postpone the introduction of paid parking until 2020.
