Blues music in Australia just seems to get stronger each year with the number of festivals increasing and the quality of music getting hotter and hotter. This is great news for Blues lovers and, of course, Thredbo being one of the longest running Blues festivals in the country, has a high reputation to maintain.

The good news is, we believe we have topped ourselves again for 2019.  Just to name a few we have the amazing Russell Morris, Jeff Lang, Cyril B Bunter Band with Mal Eastick, Harry Brus, Ivor SK, Gwyn Ashton, Gail Page Band, 19 Twenty, Anna Scionti, Hussy Hicks, Fiona Boyes Band, Sammy Owen Blues Band, The Jordan Thomas Trio, Richard Perso, Nick Charles & Pete Filder, Hoodoo Men, Jed Rowe, The Excellent Smithers, The Backsiders, New South, Hey Gringo  and more to be released soon!

We look forward to seeing all the festival’s familiar faces plus a whole bunch of fresh new faces – there’s heaps of great music for the old and bold as well as the young and young at heart.
