Bluesfest Release Set Times


Byron Bay Bluesfest have dropped the 2016 set times for their massive 5 day, 5 stage festival, including a number of monster 120 and 90 minute sets.

“Artists are given the opportunity to play full performances wherever possible and you will see full two hour shows,” said Bluesfest Festival Director Peter Noble.

Among these acts include a full performance of Bob Marley’s classic album ‘Legend on a Sunday’ by The Wailers.

Leading the festival will be global rock heroes Eagles of Death Metal. It’ll be their first Australian performance since their terrifying experience during the recent Paris terror attack where terrorists opened fire on the band and their audience.

We can assure you Bluesfest punters will be studying this novella of an itinerary for weeks to come before finalising their schedule for the week.

So good luck, and maybe ask Professor McGonagall for a Time Turner.
