Tickets are still on sale for this year’s Bluesfest, including limited tickets for tonight’s opening night event featuring Cold Chisel.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday tickets are selling fast, according to Bluesfest organisers. Camping is still available but VIP and tent motel tickets are sold out.

Tickets are available online and at the box office at the festival site but not from the Bluesfest office in Byron Bay. For more information go to the festival website.

There are two main entries to the festival this year.

South entry: For campers, busses, taxis, drop off & pickups, disabled parking and day parking once north car park fills. You won’t miss the signs guiding you the right way.

North entry: For day parking only. Parking will be $5 with part of the proceeds going to charity.

Locals are encouraged to take the bus and ride to and from the festival.

Shuttle buses will run every 20 minutes (subject to traffic) from Byron Bay. There will also be shuttle services from surrounding towns. The Bluesfest bus timetable is available at www.blanchs.com.au and brunswick valley coaches.com.au.

Festival-goers are warned that police will be out in force, sniffer dogs will be used once again and random drug and alcohol testing is likely on drivers going to and from the venue.
