BluesFest really spearheaded the establishment of music festivals in Australia and a showcase for both local and international multi-cultural artists.
BluesFest remains one of Australia’s most acclaimed and respected Festivals and has been the inspiration for dozens of blues world music and blues and roots festivals around Australia.
