ShelterBox Australia are thrilled to announce that we have been granted a stall at this year’s Bluesfest in Byron Bay, Northern NSW. We will have a unique opportunity to interact with and inform the tens of thousands of festival goers from around the world, spreading the ShelterBox word and raising some much needed funds.
“Bluesfest is one of the most highly awarded festivals in Australia. In 2005 and 2006 Bluesfest won the Helpmann Award for ‘Australia’s best contemporary Music Festival’. Between 1994 and 2010 Bluesfest has consistently been awarded Rhythms Magazine readers poll for ‘Australia’s Best Music Festival’. The only year Bluesfest did not win was in 1997 when it came second. The awards Bluesfest has won are unprecedented for a rural event.”
“Bluesfest has also been nominated by The international concert magazine Pollstar (USA) in 2005 and 2006 as one of the top five finalists in the category ‘international event of the year’ alongside such major festivals as The Glastonbury Festival (winner both years) and the Montreux Jazz Festival. Bluesfest is viewed as one of the world’s great music festivals.”
