Bluesfest's mysterious gig is a "special treat"

BLUESFEST organisers have asked punters to be "front and centre" at Mojo stage from 7.30pm for a "special treat" but gave no more details of the mysterious gig.

After The Black Keys, Lenny Kravitz, Sheppard and other artists cancelled their shows at Tyagarah this Easter, bands' performances have been moved around to ensure a seamless playing schedule.

But one slot is still open.

Who will be playing at Mojo stage, 7.30pm on Good Friday?

In a press release delivered yesterday, organisers did not provide any clues as to who the last-minute line up inclusion could be.

"Bluesfest Festival Director, Peter Noble has been working tirelessly to find an artist to play on Good Friday in lieu of The Black Keys cancellation," said the release. 

"Bluesfest cannot disclose whether this remaining 'Secret Show' will be an International or Australian artist but festival-goers are to be advised to be front and centre at the Mojo stage on Friday April 3 at 7.30pm for a very special Good Friday treat.

"Watch this space!" added the document.

Band of Skull's performance at Bluesfest will not be affected by The Black Keys' tour cancellation, which was announced on Monday. 

Bluesfest has added a second show for Band of Skulls on Saturday, April 4 at the Mojo stage at 1.30pm on Saturday, April 4.

To accommodate the second show for Band of Skulls, singer songwriter Genevieve Chadwick has changed her performance time on the Mojo stage on Saturday to 12 noon. 

The latest playing schedule has now been updated in the Bluesfest website.

The 26th Bluesfest Byron Bay, will be held in Tyagarah this Easter Long Weekend from Thursday to Monday.
