Another first for Bluesfest
THE ONLY AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL TO BE NOMINATED MORE THAN ONCE FOR PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL AWARD
It is with pride we announce that Bluesfest has been nominated in the 24th Annual Pollstar Awards “International Festival of the Year” category, making it the first Australian festival to be nominated twice by this prestigious international awards system.
Although nominated once before in 2005, this new nomination brings a fresh surge of excitement to the Bluesfest office. In the same month that it is nominated amongst its international contemporaries and previous winners and nominees including Glastonbury [UK], Roskilde[Denmark], Fuji Rock[Japan], Rock AM RING [Germany], Oxegen [Ireland] and V Fest [UK], Bluesfest has been further recognised and acknowledged for its destinational qualities and environmental sensibilities.
“Although Bluesfest is all about the music, and what a line up 2013 will be; equally it’s also about the experience of coming to a sustainable environment and soaking up that special Byron vibe”, says Festival Director Peter Noble. With the 2013 artist line up being touted as ‘the best ever line up in Australia’ punters get to tune into and witness some of the world’s top artists as well as take part in an environmentally conscious festival experience.
Recently Bluesfest has been internationally recognised and awarded a ‘commendation’ by the “A Greener Festival” award system [for the 2011/2012 season] as “a well-managed and environmentally aware festival” . More recently Bluesfest picked up the SILVER Award in the ‘Major Festival & Events’ category at the NSW Tourism Awards.
But at the end of the day it’s all because of the music. To view the impressive list of Pollstar nominees [and categories] click here: http://www.pollstarpro.com/live2013/
