BluesfestAttracting an audience of over 100,000 each year, Bluesfest showcases over 200 local and international acts, during an Easter long weekend to remember. The blues and roots festival began in 1990, and now is an essential event for Byron Bay each year. Winning countless awards including the Australian Event of the Year, Bluesfest prides itself on being a safe and fun festival that anyone and everyone can enjoy.
Previous acts include artists such as Bob Dylan, John Legend and Angus & Julia Stone, a diverse range that will suit anyone of any music tastes. The seven different stages means that you can explore all different artists and find your favourites. Not only are there fantastic acts to listen to over the five days, but also there are also licensed bars, over 100 food stalls, camping grounds and children’s entertainment.
The best way to see Byron Bay and visit Bluesfest is through hiring a campervan. Byron Bay is located on the coast, which means you can drive north and discover the Gold Coast and Brisbane, or travel south to Sydney. The weather at this time of year along the coast is perfect, which means it can be hard to find accommodation. Hiring a campervan means you can take your bed with you and sleep comfortably every night.
DriveNow offers the service to compare vehicles and prices, as well as book your campervan all in the one place. Book early to have the widest range at the best prices to choose from. Campervans have definitely revolutionised with the times, with many including double beds, all-inclusive kitchens, bathrooms and plenty of space to relax. The closest pick-up location is the Gold Coast, which is a little over an hour north of Byron Bay.
