Lenny Kravitz, Jimmie Vaughan + more announced for Bluesfest 2020

It Just Gets Better And Better!

After revealing the likes of Patti Smith, Crowded House and David Matthews Band for their first lineup announcement, Byron Bay Bluesfest have doubled down and added even more world class acts to the already exceptional festival.

Leading the pack is rock 'n roll superstar Lenny Kravitz - a man who needs no introduction (just a new pair of leather pants). Coming off the back of his last record Raise Vibration, the shows will be Kravitz's first in Australia since 2011 after canceling his planned appearance at Bluesfest back in 2015. Hopefully he sticks around for the party this time!

 

 

Joining Kravitz will be bona fide blues legend Jimmie Vaughan (older brother of Stevie Ray) who's received four Grammy Awards over his illustrious 55 year career for his genre defining shredding. This year's event is definitely heavy on the blues front, and we're totally here for it.

 

 

Elsewhere, the second wave of Bluesfest artists includes Eagles Of Death Metal, Allman Betts Band, Tal Wilkenfeld and Cory Henry & The Funk Apostles. What's crazy is that there's still another lineup announcement to come - as if it could get any better!
