Bluesfest has just welcomed Courtney Barnett into its stacked 2017 lineup
Melbourne legend and festival favourite Courtney Barnett has been added to the Bluesfest lineup for 2017.
Having been announced as the support for Patti Smith at her final Melbourne show, Barnett will now also join Smith at Bluesfest on the Thursday night.
Patti Smith has said that this will be her final full-band tour of Australia, with her performance at Bluesfest to be her last at an Australian festival.
Barnett joins the likes of Jimmy Buffet, Santana, Mary J. Blige, Jethro Tull, The Doobie Brothers, and Bonnie Raitt at the festival. Unbelievably, there are still more artist announcements to come.
