Bluesfest 2013 Announce More Sideshows

The Bluesfest line-up is already proving to be the hottest festival ticket in town after two major lineup announcements, but as the festival’s promoter Peter Noble promised in his colourful interview with Tone Deaf, the 2013 event has got more than a few tricks up it sleeve.

Now, not only is Bluesfest preparing for one of our biggest Artist Announcements EVER next Monday, they’ve also delivered the second installment of sideshows around the country.

Bluesfest Touring is absolutely thrilled to be announcing Rodriguez aka The Sugar Man in a series of unique concerts performing with surf rock band The Break (featuring members of Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes and Hunters & Collectors).

Next up we have the superb pairing of the Tedeschi Trucks Band with special guests Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. This cracker of a combination may never be repeated and is not to be missed!

We complete this announcement with the return to Australia of the first lady of British blues, jazz and pure soul, Joan Armatrading.

Rodriguez Bluesfest 2013 Sideshows

Performing with The Break, featuring members of Midnight Oil, Violent Femmes, Hunters & Collectors.
42 years has passed since the release of his debut album Cold Fact, and finally, Rodriguez is getting the recognition and success he deserves. His last tour in Australia in 2010 saw Rodriguez sell out multiple shows in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as selling out his show in Adelaide and two show-stopping appearances at Bluesfest. Now – an award-winning documentary on the ‘Mystery Man’ has launched Sixto Rodriguez into a global spotlight. Come and stand shoulder to shoulder with new and old fans alike.
