WHAT’S ON: Byron Bay Bluesfest

Bluesfest Lineup 2018


In 2018 this internationally acclaimed music festival will host 200 performances across seven stages over five days of the Easter break, showcasing more than 85 acts including Billy Bragg, Patti Smith, Santana and The Doobie Brothers.  They'll be joined by local favourites such as John Butler Trio, Neil Finn, Tash Sultana and Kasey Chambers, and international megastars like Seal, Lionel Ritchie and Lauryn Hill.

Time to marry your passion for great music with an unforgettable coastal holiday experience staying in one of Byron Beach Abodes' sophisticated and quietly luxurious properties perhaps?  Does it get better than a day listening to the richest mix of music before settling into a night snacking on a pre-ordered gourmet platter of the finest the region has to offer and a cocktail, then slipping between the luxury linen sheets in your BBA holiday accom?  We don't think so. See which of our beautiful properties has the best fit for you and your partner, or your entire tribe of family and friends! And all just a 20 minute drive from the Bluesfest action.
Mark your calendars from March 29-April 2, 2018.
