Bluesfest 2022 adds six more artists

Just two weeks after re-scheduling their dates to the Easter Long Weekend Friday 15th April – Monday 18th April 2022 with most of the scheduled artists announced from the October Event … plus new ones, Bluesfest has added another SIX artists to the already massive lineup.

“We truly intend to continue in a manner of optimism, to present Bluesfest next easter with the very best Aussie and Kiwi artists … and there are many more to come.” Said Bluesfest Director, Peter Noble OAM this morning. “I am so excited !”

“I’m thrilled to welcome back THE TESKEY BROTHERS, and also MISSY HIGGINS DIESEL. It’s been too long, and I can’t wait to see them here in Byron performing next Easter. Some more friends from NZ join us for the first time, L.A.B, and ask anyone from over the ditch and they will tell you … these guys are huge! 19-TWENTY are guaranteed to become Bluesfest favourites with their punk-rockabilly mayhem and wait until you catch FOOLS - a super huge band fusing Rock & Roll, Blues and Soul into a dynamic live show.”

“HOLD ON TO YOUR TICKETS BLUESFESTERS – I STILL HAVE SOME AMAZING HEADLINERS TO ANNOUNCE.”

“It’s going to be a celebration like no other when we all come together finally, for the greatest healing when Live Music comes back.”

“For those who are concerned about refunds – they will be available from 8th September through Moshtix. However, I can assure you that you can hold on to your tickets safe in the knowledge that, once all the artists have been announced, you will still have plenty of time to decide whether you wish to attend. Trust me though, this is the best lineup of Aussie and Kiwi talent... EVER!

You won’t be asking for a refund – you’ll be asking for more tickets.”

“TRUST ME – HOLD ON TO THOSE TICKETS.”

- PETER NOBLE OAM, CHAIRMAN BLUESFEST GROUP OF COMPANIES

THE TESKEY BROTHERS

"You won't wait long to get blown away" - American Songwriter Magazine.

It’s fair to say The Teskey Brothers have come a long way since shows in small Melbourne bars just a few years ago. The four friends from Warrandyte have seen a meteoric rise in popularity, amassing a legion of fans all around the world with their timeless recordings and stunning live shows. Onstage The Teskeys pull out all stops, conjuring a rare soulful energy and raw emotion that has fans queuing for tickets across USA, Canada, UK and Europe. Josh Teskey’s once-in-a-generation voice defying belief as the band ignites around him. Their albums have been loved by millions around the world, earning The Teskey Brothers three ARIA Awards, four Music Victoria Awards, a Grammy Nomination and an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Their live album, ‘Live at The Forum’ released in 2020 reached the number one album position on the Australian charts and won for them their fourth ARIA Award for Best Blues & Roots Album.

The Teskey Brothers’ Bluesfest appearance in 2018 was one of their most memorable live performances to date and they are thrilled to be making a return in 2022.

MISSY HIGGINS

Missy Higgins is one of our most beloved singer/songwriters and her acclaimed studio albums, ‘The Sound of White’, ‘On a Clear Night’, ‘The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle’, ‘Oz’ and ‘Solastalgia’ have sold more than two million copies. Classic songs like ‘Scar’, ‘The Special Two’, ‘Steer’, ‘Everyone’s Waiting’ and ‘Futon Couch’, plus her unforgettable live shows, have made Missy an authentic household name. She has won nine ARIA awards and multiple APRA Awards. Missy received a Screen Music Award for Best Original Song composed for the Screen for Australian Film ‘Don’t Tell’ and contributed songs for powerful ABCTV drama ‘Total Control’. She began 2020 by releasing single ‘Carry You’ written by Tim Minchin for his TV show ‘Upright’ and capped off the year with the release of ‘When The Machine Starts’ a song focussing on positives that might be drawn from the year’s lockdown experiences. The stories Missy shares through song-writing come to life on stage as enjoyed by thousands of fans at her summer shows.

L.A.B

Formed by drummer and producer Brad Kora following his split from much-loved New Zealand dub/electronic stalwarts Kora, L.A.B also comprises brother Stu (also of Kora), Joel Shadbolt (Batucada Sound Machine), former Katchafire bassist Ara Adams-Tamatea and keyboardist Miharo Gregory. Their groove blends an eclectic mix of Reggae, Electronic, Blues, Funk and Rock - all combining to create a sound entirely their own. L.A.B made their name on the live stages of New Zealand and won Radio New Zealand’s publicly-voted Best Live Act of 2019; this reputation saw them play to over 200,000 people that year. Their giant hit ‘In The Air’ went to #1 in 2020 and has stayed in the charts ever since. L.A.B’s success story continues - selling out arenas and stadiums, dominating the charts and being named People's Choice and Best Roots Artist at the Aotearoa Music Awards. L.A.B are definitely one band you must not miss at Bluesfest next Easter.

DIESEL

Born in Fall River Massachusetts, the youngest of seven from a sax playing electronics technician father and a mother in nursing, Mark Lizotte aka DIESEL grew up in Australia and in the U.S. He formed the band ‘Johnny Diesel & The Injectors’ in 1986 from remnants of a previous band before embarking on a solo career in 1991. In 2017 Diesel celebrated 30 years “off the bus” landing in Sydney in 1987 after a 3-day bus journey across Australia, launching into 9 shows per week - the rest is history. With over thirty-seven singles, seventeen albums, 6 ARIA awards and record sales edging 1 million, DIESEL is a journeyman of music. With blues music in his DNA, an influence largely from his father’s record collection, DIESEL has blended styles to come up with a truly unique sound, punctuated with his distinct guitar playing and vocals.

19-TWENTY

"One of the most exciting riff and groove-based Blues and Roots acts emerging from the east coast of OZ!" - Tone Deaf

19-Twenty have been whipping up a frenzy on the festival scene. They are electric. An infectious riff and groove-based blue-billy-grass-rockin'-roots band. The 19-Twenty lads have been performing their high-energy sonic-party nationally, headlining sell-out shows and festivals in all states and territories. Constantly on the road or in the sky, they have toured seven times around Oz and performed gigs throughout Europe including Belgium, The Netherlands & Germany. Performing anywhere and everywhere, this straight-up 100% independent act have been blazing throughout Europe and Australia and gaining new music fans/fiends from their live shows.

FOOLS

FOOLS are one of Australia's most audacious proponents of the Rock and Roll genre - healthily under the influence of Soul, Blues and Americana, and brimming with originality and rareness. Luke O'Connor's voice and storytelling stands in the centre of a musical hurricane, with the energy of dual drums, guitars, Hammond organ, backing vocals and a full horn section lending heart and detail to rare gems of songs. FOOLS perform live with command of both wildness and intimacy, and always an agreement with their audience to put on a damn good show.

Bluesfest will take place over 4 days from Friday 15th April to Monday 18th April 2022 at the Byron Events Farm, Tyagarah, NSW, AUSTRALIA.

All ticket options plus camping, parking and VIP are on sale now via the Bluesfest website.
