This year marks the Silver Anniversary for Bluesfest in Byron Bay.
Bluesfest has many great reasons to celebrate this milestone. One way will be a 25 year history photographic book. The team dug deep into the archive’s and collected past images from the last two and a half decades and created a stunning photographic journey.
Festival Director Peter Noble said ‘The book gives insight into our amazing journey over the past 25 years. It is such a joy to read the quotes from some of our favourite artists over the years who love not only performing at Bluesfest but everything the festival and Byron Bay has to offer. This book is a great memento to all our music fans out there who keep coming back year after year, they will be able to look back and say, I remember that moment!’
The book is 180 pages and is a high quality hard cover publication.
Along with a collection of images are quotes from past artists that played at the festival.
Some include: "If the crowds against you it's tough, if the crowds with u it's easy, and if its the crowd at Bluesfest it's a guaranteed ball! I ruined my flashy suit I sweat so much but it was worth it!" Chris Issak. And " it was a very special time for my band & I to play the Byron Bluesfest. Thank you for letting us be a part of this great event" BB King
