Now that I’m in Byron Bay I’ll be doing my best to update you all on what’s going on at one of Australia’s biggest music festivals – the Byron Bay Bluesfest.
Yesterday was the first day of the festival so I spent the afternoon/evening trudging around in the muddy fields flitting from tent to tent to check out some of the amazing music that is taking place here this week.
The selection is amazingly varied; I’m actually curious to find out what the criteria for performing here is, since there are plenty of bands that certainly do not fall under the category of ‘blues.’
From solo guitarists to folk bands, traditional pan pipers to Cuban 10 piece bands there’s something for just about everyone here.
Keep checking back for more details of how I spend my days. But for now, I’ve got a bus to catch for Day 2!
