The fourth annual Cairns Blues Festival is approaching, and this year looks set to be the biggest and best yet. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of Cairns Esplanade, the renowned ‘Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef”, the one-day festival is a celebration of the best of world Blues, gospel and folk music and attracts thousands of music lovers of all ages each year.

The festival is the brainchild of a dedicated team of music enthusiasts, musicians and volunteers and provides a valuable platform for talented local and international artists who take to the stage in over eleven hours of live music in Fogarty Park, close to our Trinity Beach accommodation.

16 artists have already been confirmed for this year’s line up, including Flamin’ Cane Toads, Jonnos Blues Band, Two Rivers Blue and The Tailgaters. As well as world-class music, the festival plays host to a variety of food and market stalls and a number of licensed bars. The atmosphere is laid back and family-friendly and there is a special shaded children’s play area to keep the kids amused while you enjoy the music.
