A week after announcing a hefty second lineup addition to their 2017 incarnation, Bluesfest have kept the good times rollin’ with another pair of iconic acts gracing the bill. And man, it’s a hot one.

Joining in on the action will be guitar legend Santana, who is still kicking arse 50 odd years into his career. Also announced is yacht rock gawds The Doobie Brothers, bringing extreme levels of chill to Byron Bay.

They join the already-announced Mary J Blige, Patti Smith, Billy Bragg, and a whole lot more. We can expect more goodness to come, as Bluesfest tend to keep the big names rolling in.

Bluesfest will be held over the Easter weekend at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm. Tickets are on sale now – grab them here.
