Festival Info

"Thredbo Blues is one of the best festivals going.
The clean mountain air, amazing views and village vibe makes Thredbo Blues not only unique,
but one of the coolest festivals out there.'

Genevieve Chadwick, Guitar Artist

You know you’re onto a good music festival when the very people who form the backbone of it, the artists, call it their personal favourite. Clear and crisp mountain air, beautiful surrounds, electric village vibes and soul soothing blues tunes make the Thredbo Blues Festival one of the top events to attend this summer.

And it’s the intimate nature of the festival that really sets it apart from the rest. Forget being herded around like cattle, the Thredbo Blues Festival is famous for providing a great casual atmosphere combined with an impressive line up of talent.

Only a handful of music festivals in Australia can claim a 20 year legacy, and this summer’s Thredbo Blues Festival is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet.

On from 17-19 January 2014, 22 Australian artists will perform over the weekend with headline acts including the iconic Wendy Matthews, the inventive Jeff Lang, explosive Kevin Borich, super-smooth Ray Beadle and renowned Rick Price.

The Foreday Riders who have performed continuously from the mid 60’s and well-known for spawning many brilliant musicians along the way will also perform together with The Mighty Reapers and a swag of new comers including Jungal.

“The 2014 Thredbo Blues is undoubtedly one of the best line-ups
in any Australian Blues festival for some years

Festival Director, Stewart Wauchop 

Legendary Blues man Jeff Lang, a Thredbo Blues crowd favourite, loves this festival. "I've been coming to Thredbo to play at the Blues Festival for 18 years now. I love how it really feels like the whole town has given itself over to music for the duration of the festival. The audiences are great too, like the whole town is populated by people who love to hear live music. It's a different vibe to a typical festival and I always look forward to coming back to Thredbo to play' he said.

The combination of concert, intimate and poolside venues showcasing artists at their best will create a party not to be missed with your accommodation just a short walk home.

There is an accommodation option to suit everyone in Thredbo with all inclusive festival and accommodation packages starting from only $275 per person. 3 Day Early Bird Festival tickets are available until the end of November for only $125. Make sure you book today!
