Three more acts on this year's Bluesfest 2017 bill have announced sideshows this morning, joining Bluesfest Touring's already burgeoning roster of acts playing gigs outside of the five-day festival.
San Diego's Slightly Stoopid have detailed plans to bring their frenetic, fun live show to two east coast gigs, in addition to their slot on the Byron Bay festival — one each in Sydney and Melbourne.
Bluesman Mud Morganfield has also announced a pair of headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne, bringing both his and his father Muddy Waters' classics to the stage.
Finally, Davy Knowles has added a headline show in Sydney to make the most of his first Australian trip, having played US festival behemoths Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo in the past.
Bluesfest takes over Byron Bay in April with a massive bill of bands such as Bonnie Raitt, Santana, Mary J Blige, Patti Smith, The Lumineers and most recently added, Jimmy Buffett.
