Bob Dylan Confirmed for Australian Blues Festival!


Bob Dylan has been confirmed to appear at a small town Australian music festival next April, eight years after he was reportedly scheduled to play.

Topping the bill of the closing night at the 2011 Byron Bay Bluesfest, Dylan will be joining old-touring partner Elvis Costello and legendary guitarist BB King as a headliner at the five day Easter weekend festival (Apr. 21 to Apr. 25).

Bluesfest director Peter Noble claims that he has been ‘chasing’ Dylan to play the small north-east coast town in New South Wales — 165km south of Brisbane — booking him to play in 2003, but that he cancelled at the last minute.

Speaking to ABC news, Noble said, “He used to say, ‘Don’t put me in any town I’ve never heard of’, and finally we’ve done it. Although I think he’s heard of Byron now.” Full Story at Spinner
