Brian Setzer's Tour Calender is free till April 21. He is about the last on my bucket list. Rockabilly is his gig.

Full lineup seems to be out this morning now.
Looking forward to those timetables and hopefully not too many clashes.

Leon Bridges just announced for Thursday & Saturday

This is going to be (IMHO) one of the best lineups in a long time

Thanks bluesfest

No rockabilly at Bluesfest 2018 but we will get a little surf.

this would appear to be the final announcement for 2018 with some nice additions to the lineup, there were a few names who i was hoping would get a spot on the festival this year who didn't make it but overall it is a fantastic lineup with a heap of my favourites & a bunch of new artists i am yet to see. i am now awaiting the schedule to see how many clashes i will have to deal with but it usually comes out pretty good most years.

The schedule says more to come at the bottom and there is still some space on the Monday.

i think that part of the playing schedule page hasn't been updated because on the facebook page when they made the announcement the quote they used was "rounding out the lineup" or something like that. also if you remember last year some stages started later in the day so don't keep your hopes up for more names as i doubt they will come.

Not really worried because I have chosen to go on the Sunday with my one day ticket. Looking forward to seeing Melissa Etheridge again, plus Sheryl Crow, Seal, Lukas Nelson and JBT.

no worries eileen, i hope you have a great time on the sunday... hopefully you get to see as many of the names as you want to but as always clashes happen so hopefully it works out for you.

Does the last additions to the Fest amount to an Announcement, or is it just an addition?
I am thinking the latter but not sure.

Assuming that this is the last announcement, I can't say that I am dissapointed. There may not be my favourite, have to go see bands on the list but there are enough on there to spark my interest.

Then there are the new artists I have never seen. Exposure to these people is what is needed. I may find a next favourite or I might just walk away from a set; that is the beauty of festivals. The first time I listened to Bonnie Raitt and Gallie was at a festival and I am richer for it. Looking forward to the experience!

There will be more acts announced and they will announce them when they present the playing schedule and I also believe there will be some wonderful acts amongst this last announcement.

That's just my opinion

It's funny you say that, because that is what I have been thinking too (maybe just wishful thinking, but hey, it's nice to dream).
