Politics is a phenomenal experience. To work harder than you thought possible, to put yourself so absolutely in the public domain full of hope and belief. Then to ask for judgement. It’s high stakes. A kind of ethical and philosophical extreme sport.

The fourth and final Bluesfest artist announcement, released today, includes the addition of a second John Fogerty show on Monday 9 April.

Other acts announced this morning include Slightly Stoopid; Weddings, Parties, Anything; The Hands; Claude Hay; Mick Thomas’s Roving Commission; Mason Rack Band; Daniel Champagne; Bobby Alu; Dan Hannaford; Round Mountain Girls; Mojo Bluesmen; Harry Healy; and the Blackbirds.

Festival director Peter Noble says, ‘We are thrilled to announce a second and spectacular 6pm sunset show for John Fogerty on Easter Monday. This time he will perform his Creedence Clearwater Revival Album Green River in its entirety, plus his bonus set drawn from the canon of his solo and CCR hits. This special sunset performance will set the scene for Bluesfest’s closing night with many more wonderful artists to follow afterwards.’

The complete, official and downloadable playing schedule is now available at www.bluesfest.com.au including the exact playing times of each artist.

The 23rd Bluesfest is taking place between Thursday 5 April and Monday 9 April at its festival home at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm just outside of Byron Bay.

Tickets are on sale through www.bluesfest.com.au or by phoning the Bluesfest office on 02 6685 8310.
