Another great day out at Tyagarah on Sunday for the 2014 Bluesfest with punters putting on their glad rags for Blues bunny day.

With another edition of great talent, the favourites were too many to mention with Morcheeba and Erykah Badu up there at the top of the list.

Michael Franti did what he does best, getting the crowd revved up in fine form, as did newcomer to the Bluesfest stage Nahko and Medicine for the People.

Mid-way through the day saw a special celebration on the Mojo stage in the dying minutes of Playing for Change set when a birthday cake in the shape of a guitar was presented to Peter Noble from the Bluesfest staff and the entire Mojo audience joined in for a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday.

Things are bound to be roiling again tonight as Franti puts in his second appearance as does the Dave Matthews Band who, along with crowd favourite Elvis Costello, see the festival out.
