Bluesfest 2014 official lineup

Bluesfest has been an annual pilgrimage for many over the years. 2014 sees the event celebrate 25 years and traditionally it gets announced much later in the year, but it seems this time around, they can't hold back for the big reveal!

Heading up Bluesfest 2014 are John Mayer, who is returning after a break of seven long years and the Dave Matthews Band who last appeared back in 2005.

Peter Noble says this about John Mayer and Dave Matthews Band:

“John Mayer is finally coming back after 7 years to play at Bluesfest again. When it comes to guitar he is undoubtedly to me the most talented of all performing today, simply untouchable and I say that with all humility.

I have attempted to bring back Dave Matthews Band every year since they last played Bluesfest. They are one of the top grossing, most in demand bands in the world - as well as up there with the best of the best. Finally, they are coming back to Bluesfest, for not one, but two full length performances, and each night will be completely different as this super band never plays the same set twice!
