"With the addition of nine more sensational Australian to our already magnificent lineup, I am convinced this will be one of the great Bluesfests.

"Pete Murray, Mark Seymour & The Undertow and Kate Ceberano join our headline lineup to play on the final day of Bluesfest - and this will make Easter Monday a special day to be at Bluesfest. In fact, Easter Monday is shaping up now to be one of the highlight days of the Easter weekend."

Artists already announced for Bluesfest include Jimmy Barnes, Tash Sultana, Ocean Alley and Ziggy Alberts.

Organisers say Bluesfest 2021 is now 85 percent sold out and Sunday one day tickets are now sold out.
