The lineup for Bluesfest 2023 just got even bigger, with the addition of six more artists. Rock & Roll hall of famers The Doobie Brothers will be spending Easter in Byron Bay, along with soft rock hitmakers Counting Crows, poet, multi-instrumentalist and activist Allison Russell, soulful rock outfit Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Alabama eight-piece St. Paul & The Broken Bones and swaggering soul-rockers Vintage Trouble.
They join 41 acts already announced on the 2023 lineup, including Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Elvis Costello & The Imposters, GZA, Lucinda Williams, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joe Bonamassa and more.

Next year’s instalment of Bluesfest will also feature a stellar array of local talent, including the reconfigured Cat Empire, Chain, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Tash Sultana, Gang Of Youths and Xavier Rudd. Meanwhile, the festival will offer Australian exclusive appearances from the likes of Beth Hart, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Gales, Kaleo, Greensky Bluegrass, Nikki Hill and Southern Avenue.
The festival will once again return to its home at the Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just north of Byron Bay, running for five days across the 2023 Easter long weekend.
