Buffett to perform at Bluesfest in Australia

Bluesfest today announced that Jimmy Buffett will be performing an Australian exclusive peformance at the festival over the Easter long weekend.

Jimmy Buffett joins the lineup off the back of the disappointing announcements that neither Neil Young nor Barry Gibb will be performing at the 2017 festival as originally announced.

Said Bluesfest Festival Director, Peter Noble: “Hey Parrotheads…..Jimmy Buffett is coming…..to play one totally exclusive show at Bluesfest on April 14….YES, Jimmy is coming all the way to Australia to play one show just for you! Jimmy and The Coral Reefers will be present and presenting his unique “island escapism” style at the epicentre of Australian escapism…..Byron Bay.”

Buffett will be joined by his full band, the Coral Reefers.

Jimmy Buffett joins a huge lineup that includes Patti Smith, Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Billy Bragg and a huge — and growing — list of artists from around the world. Bluesfest takes place at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, April 13-17 2017.
