Beck will play an acoustic set at Bluesfest 2023.

Musical genius Beck returns to Australia and will grace the stage for the first time ever at Bluesfest next Easter.

This announcement makes Beck the 50th artist to be added to the Bluesfest bill, with the promise of more to come.

Beck will play a scaled-down acoustic show, which has earned rave reviews from key publications around the world.

Since Beck emerged as a reluctant generational spokesperson when Loser exploded from a rejected 1992 demo into a ubiquitous 1994 smash, his career has explored all genres and eras of music, blurred boundaries and blazed a path into the future while foraging through the past.

Hugely excited

Festival Director Peter Noble OAM says that Bluesfest is hugely excited to be presenting Beck. ‘We have already announced 49 artists for our 34th Bluesfest, and Beck makes it 50! His acoustic set will certainly provide an avant-garde element to our already amazing line-up.

‘For the first time since 2019, Bluesfest is free and unencumbered to showcase the finest genres of music from all over the globe, and Beck is the true personification of this.’

‘Earlier this year, we made the decision not to increase our ticket prices from 2022 prices. This is a huge call considering the current economic climate. We won’t be able to maintain this stance for much longer, so be quick to secure the best price for your Bluesfest 2023 tickets.’

Improvements on the Bluesfest property

Noble says the 365 days a year site improvement on the Bluesfest property continue. ‘Since last year we’ve invested over $500k upgrading and waterproofing the Bluesfest site. Both myself and my team are currently looking at every single aspect of the Bluesfest experience to ensure it’s of the highest quality possible.

‘For the campers that seek a ‘class above’ experience you can upgrade to the Rainbow Tipi accommodation this year [with a modest increase in price] as well as experience further improvements with the onsite rental tents.

‘Bluesfest is also upgrading the VIP area to raise the VIP experience to new heights.’

‘A five-day season ticket at Bluesfest can be a life-changing experience, and with our site improvements, stunning lineup and improved food and beverage suppliers, five days is the way to go.’
