If you thought Bluesfest might take it easy after casually adding some legendary headliners in Barry Gibb and Neil Young to their 2017 lineup, you thought wrong. The Byron Bay Easter weekend spectacular has just gone and added a whole stack of quality acts into the mix.

Heading up the sixth announcement are UK luminaries Madness, along with Miles Electric Band, plus the news that the already-announced Patti Smith and her band will be performing a special acoustic set at the festival.
