when it comes to the blues side of the festival, for me there is only one name i am most excited for & it is walter trout. the reason for this is not just because of his talent as a guitarist but i had the disappointment of his cancelation in 2014 due to his health. after thinking i wouldn't get to see him live walter has come back from the prospect of death & back to the stage thanks to his liver transplant which i am most excited for when he comes to byron bay in 5 weeks. the only disappointing thing now is that he will only get a one hour set on both days... which is cool as i will be seeing him live but would be nice if one of his sets could be 90 mins... any chance bluesfest admin? either way this is going to be one of the tru highlights of the festival which i will be taking in on easter sunday... anyone else here with me with this one?

.....and given his last album which he did with all of those other invited players, it would be great to see him play with a few of those who were on that album (Warren Haynes, Eric Gales & Joe Louis Walker). Very high on my list (along with Gov't Mule).

There surely has to be some guest appearances given the collaboration on the album

If you aren't looking for these guest appearances....you have rocks in your head. ☺

Walter will be one of the absolute must sees. So glad he was able to travel over this time.

Wonder if Walters son Jon will travel over with him. Also a very talented guitarist.

Wow!!
If you didn't see Walter Sunday, make him a not to be missed item for Monday.

I was at Walter Trout's performance yesterday and he was absolutely brilliant. And his son Jon did make a guest appearance and played a wonderful solo. And what a band! Only three of them - keyboards, bass and drums - but they were laying down an enormous sound. And the bass player is very entertaining as well. They're on again this afternoon and I agree they're not to be missed.

Walter played like a demon
His son was great as well.
The keyboardist and his son on bass were astonishing.
I also agree -not to be missed
Best blues I've seen in ages
Thank you to Bluesfest for getting them here.

Outstanding.
A special performance to witness and I think also for Walter who was overcome at the end.

Couldn't agree more guys. I was just gobsmacked at Monday's performance.

I missed him & I was keen to see him.
I had a rest day sun but unfortunately arrived much later than I intended Monday.
I expected him to headline one tent later at night.
