Ballina Region for Refugees needs help

Can you help local community group Ballina Region for Refugees help newcomers in need of training?

After two disappointing cancelations of their event, Bluesfest has announced that they will hold the 2021 festival over the October long weekend –  Friday, October 1 to Monday, October 4.

Organisers say that the new October Bluesfest will be a jampacked four days – but they have announced that current five-day season ticket holders don’t miss out and next week they will be announcing something very special.

Bluesfest 2021 has added more talent to the bill as a way of saying thank you to all of their supporters.

Next week they will announce the full festival lineup and will be releasing the on-sale of season tickets for this event. Three-day and one-day tickets will go on sale soon after this announcement.

At this time, all current Bluesfest 2021 ticketholders will receive official communication from Moshtix and will be given information on how to roll over to the new event, with the option to request a refund remaining available.

Organisers say that after processing the rollover of current patrons and with only limited availability for the new event, they are expecting to see sales reach capacity.

Details can be found on the Bluesfest website: bluesfest.com.au.
