Bluesfest 2017 adds Madness, The Mountain Goats and more

Thought Bluesfest had already delivered the goods for its 2017 line-up? Think again.

Madness, The Mountain Goats, Slightly Stoopid and Miles Electric Band have just been added to the already-impressive bill.

Patti Smith and her band have also added another show to their prior Bluesfest commitments, which comes in the form of a super intimate acoustic set on Good Friday.

Billy Bragg will now be performing with Grammy-winning Joe Henry, while Rhiannon Giddens also returns to the Byron Bay festival.

Also newly confirmed are Max Jury, The Record Company, The California Honeydrops and Trevor Hall.

Byron Bay Bluesfest 2017 takes over Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm from Thursday 13 to Monday 17 April 2017.
