Another massive line-up of international and national artists has been announced for the 23rd Bluesfest.
Sublime with Rome, Zappa Plays Zappa, Dawes, James Vincent McMorrow, Josh Pyke, Blue King Brown, Eileen Jewell, 1814, Busby Marou and Melbourne Ska Orchestra join headliners Cold Chisel, Crosby Stills & Nash, Roger Daltrey, Earth Wind & Fire and The Pogues. The list goes on…
Festival director Peter Noble said, ‘After securing some of the legendary heavyweights, it’s always an immense pleasure to announce some of our favourite Australian musicians and I’m stoked to be adding them to the incredible line-up.
‘The blend of music across the board is quite staggering. Let the countdown begin.’
Legendary ska-punk band Sublime have reignited their career with a new singer.
Rome Ramirez, a 21-year-old northern California native, has big shoes to fill.
Formed in Long Beach in 1988, Sublime sold more than 17 million albums worldwide, but disbanded after the tragic death of singer Bradley Nowell.
After a handful of jam sessions with Rome in 2008, however, it led to a few impromptu shows before officially dubbing themselves Sublime with Rome.
Bluesfest will take place between Thursday 5 April and Monday 9 April 2012 at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm.
Tickets are on sale now through www.bluesfest.com.au or by phoning the office on 6685 8310.
