Bluesfest playing schedule revealed and more acts announced

BLUESFEST has revealed its 2015 playing schedule and has announced some new acts for the Easter Long Weekend festival. 

If you're planning to head to Bluesfest this year, now you can get out your highlighters and start planning for festival experience.

The playing schedule for the 2015 Byron Bay festival can be viewed here.

Five major undercover stages (and one busking stage) will be bringing world class artists and their favourite songs to the Bluesfest audience from day to night.

With the festival now only six weeks away more artists have also been added to the gigantic line-up, including a number of stellar Aussie musicians.

For those yet to purchase tickets, 5-Day tickets are entering their final allocation and will be increasing in price and final allocations are happening in many ticket areas.

Bluesfest line up announcement seven reveals that Frank Yamma, Delta Rae, Wagons, Skipping Girl Vinegar, Marlon Williams & The Yarra Benders, Kristy Lee, Genevieve Chadwick, Dewayne Everettsmith, The Bella Reunion, Luluc, James T., Matt Andersen, Shaun Kirk, Eddie Boyd & The Phatapillars will play at the 2015 festival. 

Festival Director, Peter Noble, said he was excited to announced the playing schedule and new acts.

"It is always an exciting time here at Bluesfest when we announce the playing schedule with all the performance times and stages," Mr Noble said.

"It's time to start checking through who you want to see the most, and who may get put aside for a preferred choice.

"It's never easy to programme, as there are so many competing interests - managers and agents who feel their artists should be more highly billed - and clashes - oh those clashes."

"We DO try to avoid as many as possible, however, there are inevitably going to be some - sorry if you are going to need to be in two places at the same time."

"We have attempted to give a number of upcoming artists more plays this year - so you can still catch their performances once their buzz goes out to everyone."

Bluesfest 2015 will be held at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just outside of Byron Bay, from Thursday April 2 until Monday April 6.
