THE SCENE

For the first time in Australia a genuine international and national multi-cultural, strictly music Festival began. Bluesfest featured people from not only an indigenous background, but from many non-European and non-English speaking backgrounds. The event has now grown to a point where people from every Continent appear yearly at the event. Bluesfest remains one of Australia's most acclaimed and respected Festivals and has been the inspiration for dozens of blues world music and blues and roots festivals around Australia.
