This Just In: Crowded House Join The Star-Studded Lineup For Bluesfest 2022
Yep, you heard right! Iconic Aussie outfit Crowded House are performing at the 2022 edition of Bluesfest Byron Bay Easter Sunday next year.
Bluesfest will be the last stop on the outfit's first Australian tour in 12 years, with the tour also visiting fans in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Bowral.
"CROWDED HOUSE - CROWDED HOUSE - CROWDED HOUSE!!!
This is such a great announcement I have to just keep saying it - and pinching myself! I am beyond thrilled and excited to welcome Crowded House back to Bluesfest. I have great memories of them, and the sensational live performance they gave, headlining the very first Bluesfest at our Tyagarah home back in 2010. Crowded House have a trophy cabinet stacked with awards and no wonder, because not only is the Crowded House songbook jam-packed with instantly recognisable songs, but their live performances are an exercise in memorable, anthemic perfection. It's an honour to have them return and allow us to host THE CLOSING DATE ON THEIR LONG-AWAITED AUSTRALIAN TOUR" - said Bluesfest director Peter Noble OAM of the announcement.
Joining Crowded House at Bluesfest includes the likes of The Cat Empire, Midnight Oil, Paul Kelly, Jimmy Barnes, Amy Shark, The Teskey Brothers, SIX60, Fat Freddy's Drop, L.A.B, John Butler, Xavier Rudd and heaps more.
Bluesfest 2022 kicks off on Thursday 14 April, running until Monday 18 April at the Byron Events Farm, Tyagarah. All ticket options, plus camping, parking, and VIP for the festival are on sale now, so round up your crew and score tickets ASAP.
