Third Artist Announcement - It's a Bluesfest Dream Come True!

Bluesfest, Australia's multi award winning Festival, held annually over the long Easter Weekend (March 28 to April 1) announced its 3rd sensational Line-Up for 2013!

Headlining this announcement is ROBERT PLANT, the legendary front man of the band Led Zeppelin, presenting Sensational Shape Shifters.

Led Zeppelin came to Australia in 1972 and a Robert Plant Tour of Australia has been long awaited by his Australian fans. He last toured in 1996 with Jimmy Page. Plant was voted in the Rolling Stone Readers Pick in 2011, 'The Best Lead Singer of All Time'. Even greater is the news that he has been performing 8 Led Zeppelin songs on stage on his current South American Tour. Now the wait is finally over – Robert Plant is coming to our shores and will headline Bluesfest on Saturday 30th of March.

Other outstanding artists in the 3rd announcement include Roger Hodgson - The Legendary Voice of Supertramp, 70's rock band Status Quo, former lead singer of the band YES, Jon Anderson, as well as England's Ska/Punk/Soul/Pop heroes - Madness.

The already super strong Bluesfest bill just keeps growing with the 2 previous announcements including Santana, Jimmy Cliff, Iggy & The Stooges, Ben Harper, Steve Miller Band, Chris Isaak, Wilco and many more.

Festival Director Peter Noble says:

With this 3rd announcement it really feels like Bluesfest 2013 is delivering the best line up of its history.

Bringing Robert Plant to Bluesfest is a dream come true, not just for me, but for the thousands of fans who have been standing by patiently all these years!! We have waited together for so long and now it's gonna happen – I am so delighted and hugely honoured.

Welcoming back Roger Hodgson - The Legendary voice of Supertramp for the 2nd time is another absolute highlight. If you missed Roger Hodgson in 2010 don't do it again. His songs "Give a Little Bit" and "Lord Is It Mine" continue to give me goose-bumps after all these years. There are just too many hits to name them all, and Roger's voice is just as it was all those years ago.

Status Quo, Jon Anderson and Madness: these are artists who are world class and give Bluesfest its icing on the cake, but we are still not done yet. There are still more artists to be added in the upcoming weeks, but for now let's revel in the wonderment of this 3rd announcement.

The 24th Bluesfest will take place between Thursday 28th of March and Monday 1st of April 2013 at Bluesfest's permanent home at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm just outside of Byron Bay.
