Along with continuous live music, the free, family-friendly event will play host to an all-star, Blues line-up of 15 acts across three throughout the Docklands Harbour Town precinct; an indoor stage under the big top of the Wonderland Spiegeltent. The two outdoor stages will be set up under the Melbourne Star and the Harbour Town Hotel.
Harbour Town, the Wonderland Spiegeltent, Harbour Town Hotel, and the Melbourne Star.
Blues' fans will be delighted by a line-up featuring performers including acclaimed headliner Mark Green (Canada), Andrea Marr and The Funky Hitmen, Geoff Achison, Dreamboogie, Dan Dinnen, Sweet Felicia & The Tradies, and loads more. The annual Blues Festival is also one of the only music festivals to boast such a large array of female acts.
To quote Festival Director, Melissa Head, 'The Blues Festival is one our favourite events that drives the locals and visitors alike to our precinct for a full day and evening of world-class entertainment. Singin' the blues has never been so much fun!'
The Blues Festival is one of the only Aussie music festivals featuring such a significant number of female acts.
Apart from local Harbour Town eateries, the festival will have its own special "Blues Food" food truck on site to satisfy appetites for all things southern and soulful. For little ones and sweet-toothed adults, carnival treats including popcorn, pretzels, fairy floss and ice cream will be available for purchase at the Wonderland "Sweet Treats" café throughout the day.
Licensed venues at Harbour Town, and Wonderland's carnival rides and attractions will be open for business during the event and into the evening to give kids and parents an extra thrill or even a relaxing double shot meal and hot beverage.
