Counting Crows and a Ben Harper solo show are the top billings in the fifth and, we are assured, far from final Bluesfest announcement overnight.

They are in the good company of The Lumineers, of whom Bluesfest director Peter Noble said, ‘if you are not on to The Lumineers, we recommend you do…’

‘Just one listen to the first single from the Denver band’s self-titled album Ho Hey will have you whistling it all summer long.’

Bluesfest regular Ben Harper has just wrapped up his first-ever solo acoustic Australian tour to great acclaim and will now add a solo gig on top of his existing Bluesfest full-band gig.

After 20 years and more than 20 million albums sold, multi-platinum-selling Counting Crows are making their Bluesfest debut in the wake of their recent album release titled Underwater Sunshine, a collection of covers from some of their favourite performers.

Also on the bill will be Taj Mahal, Shuggie Otis, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Ben Howard, Tav Falco & The Panther Burns, JD Mcpherson, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Soja, Jake Shimabukuro and Damien Dempsey.
