Bluesfest announces second Hozier show

Bluesfest organisers have confirmed Irish singer songwriter Hozier will perform a second show at this year's festival, on Easter Saturday, April 4.

His first show will be on the opening night of Bluesfest, on Thursday, April 2.   

Hozier's debut Australian sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne sold out in a matter of minutes.

At only 24 years of age, Andrew Hozier accumulated a strong underground following through Spotify, You Tube and radio success, gathering momentum and rapidly burgeoning into international stardom.

Produced by Rob Kirwan (U2, Depeche Mode, Glasvegas, Ray Lamontagne), his 2013 debut EP, Take Me To Church, (released later in Australia) was nominated for Song of the Year at the 2015 Grammys.

The song was a world-wide smash hit.

Last week, Bluesfest organisers confirmed 80% of the festival tickets have been sold.
