American folk rock band The Lumineers lead the pack nationwide as the most streamed Bluesfest artist, according to online music service Spotify.

They are followed by Atlanta-based country music group, Zac Brown Band, and hip hop icon, Nas.

While Byron Bay residents admire the timeless melodies and soul-stirring lyrics of The Lumineers and the soulful sound of Michael Kiwanuka, Bangalow and Brunswick Heads are into the worldly blend of rock, hip-hop, and alt-folk brought to by Nahko and the Medicine People. They also have a soft spot for the classics with legends The Doobie Brothers making top lists in both.

Some of the region’s most anticipated artists include much-loved Californian natives, Slightly Stoopid (top streamed artist in Lennox Head), who will be returning to the Bluesfest stage for the third year.

Joining them on the line-up is the long-awaited Bluesfest debut performance by Trevor Hall – the top streamed artist in Ocean Shores and Mullumbimby – who will bring his eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting to the Bluesfest stage this year.

Aussie legend Kasey Chambers is making a comeback, landing in the top 5 most streamed artist lists in Lismore, Brunswick Heads and Ocean Shores and her 2016 hit Satellite is the number one most streamed track in Ocean Shores.
