The annual Fed Bluesfest is a lively all-day event celebrating some of the best things in life ...  blues music, food from the Deep South and wine tasting. 

Spread across two stages on Saturday August 18, the event kicks off at midday in the back beer garden for a sun-drenched afternoon of laid-back tunes and wine tasting. Then from 6pm, the party moves into the front bar, where the live music goes up a notch for an evening of quality blues rock and dancing. 

Blues heavyweights BB Factory headline this year’s event. Hailing from the Gold Coast, BB Factory play a mix of originals and classic blues, funk and rock n' roll delivered in their own signature style.

USA frontman Harold Jackson is known as BB Factory’s “Toastmaster General”. Jackson is a natural singer able to transpose his voice from the soulful clean to the downright dirty blues shouting from the yesteryear.

Joining BB Factory on the line-up will be a heap of smoking hot touring and local blues n' roots acts including Mick Daley's Alternative Fax, Glenn Heath & The Deep Blue Sea, Ollie McGill Trio, Joe Newton and The Boogie Men. 

The Fed Bluesfest is a free event. From 12pm till close, Saturday August 18, at the Federal Hotel Bellingen.
