Our Blues Fest Schedule for 2017!
It’s going to be a busy 5 days! With so many acts on, we are going to be almost running from one stage to another.
We’ve taken some time to create a little bit of a schedule for ourselves, to make sure we don’t miss any of our favourite acts! Take a look at our picks.
Courtney Barnett– need we explain why we are excited! To be honest…. Everyone on our list is going to be a “no explanation needed” act, because they are all so good. She’s witty, she rambles and her grunge-alternative-indie rock (if that is a thing), is too cool to miss.
The Lumineers– it wasn’t until plugging The Lumineers into YouTube that we realised how often we inadvertently have them playing in the office (how good is YouTube’s autoplay function). Can not wait to see the American folk group live!
Mary J Blige– oh my god, no words necessary for this absolute QUEEN!
Corinne Bailey Rae– she won us over all those years ago with Put Your Records On and we are predicting it will be an amazing set from the British singer, songwriter and guitarist.
Remi– The Australian rapper with a powerful message. Remi is young, and has wisdom beyond his year that translates into powerful lyrics. His beats are also cult favourites and it will be a set not to be missed.
Busby Marou– similar to Cat Empire, no matter how many times you see Busby Marou, they manage to capture the crowd and create an atmosphere that is undeniable. Finish your Blues long weekend by linking arms with the stranger next to you and swaying/swinging/dancing/swirling to Biding My Time, it will be good for your soul (and then hang around for Kasey Chambers and Neil Finn afterward).
Can’t wait to see all your amazing Blues Fest snaps! If you’re wearing your Sienna polish, be sure to snap a pic and tag us in it!
