We’ve crossed from Queensland into New South Wales to attend Australia’s epic annual blues & roots music festival – Byron Bay Bluesfest. With over 200 performers on 7 stages over 5 full days, Bluesfest showcases music from around the world.
Despite the name, there’s far more than blues here. We saw Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, Tom Jones and Brian Wilson (with Al Jardine joining him on stage, we were basically seeing the Beach Boys). The festival is a celebration of music, culture and community with a typically relaxed Aussie feel. Maybe more so. ;-)
The campground here at the festival site, Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just north of Byron Bay, NSW can accommodate up to 6,000 people, so we were right at home staying in our campervan.
Special thanks to Russell Mills of the Legendary Pacific Coast. You might have seen our interview with him at our serendipitous meeting in Southern California. It was great to reconnect on his home turf. Russell is an expert on exploring Australia’s Pacific Coast, so this time is was our turn to interview him about potential destinations on the remainder of our trip.
