There are some very exciting new shows in the works for this year’s Bluesfest, adding to the pile that already includes names like Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant and exciting new alt-country stars Hurray For The Riff Raff.

Now, Colombian icon Juanes has announced he’ll be heading on tour during his trip over for Bluesfest in March/April next year, adding shows in Melbourne and Sydney. With over 15 million in album sales and a massive 23 Latin Grammy wins (Shakira has won 12, to put that into perspective), he’s one of the biggest names in music, and has played and recorded with everyone from The Rolling Stones to Tony Bennett and Nelly Furtado.

Also, an incredible guitarist is heading our way in Newton Faulkner, who arrives for his first Aussie tour since 2013. Having notched up platinum recognition in both Australia and the U.K., he’s an astonishing live performer, and his shows in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth will be a must-see.

Last but not least, Gomez have added a second Melbourne show after the first sold out (with Perth and Sydney also selling fast), and Adelaide get in on the fun with the band also appearing at the Beer & Barbecue festival on April 27. As one of the biggest bands of the ’90s, winning the coveted Mercury Prize for their seminal debut album Bring It On, it’s no surprise this one’s in such big demand.
