With all the traffic heading toward Byron Bay, it would be good to see how many cars are heading to Bluesfest. Perhaps a bumber sticker for next year?

Many years back I was hitching to BF- wore a T-shirt from the previous year. Stood in a howling gale and driving rain fifteen miles out of home for six or seven hours; (4P a six-year old redneck commented to his mother "We wouldn't give HIM a lift would we" as they strolled to the farm gate opposite; BUT as evening started to settle in a Kombi hurtled past- driver had spotted the T-shirt!

there use to be a bluesfest sticker a few years ago.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

My brother was telling me about this idea on the drive up... he reckons there needs to be two parts to it so you can switch it up for different times during the year:

"On my way to Bluesfest"
"Heading home from Bluesfest"
"I'd rather be at Bluesfest"
"Not long now 'til Bluesfest"

Who got stuck in that monster traffic jam just outside of Bulahdelah heading south?

Crazy. Will be great when a few of those bypasses are completed.

Took us 1 1/2 hours to go 7 kilometers but once past that it was full tilt all the way home...didn't appreciate the smart arses who drove up the inside shoulder to pass all of us tired travellers.

I actually left after Elvis Costello, and slept in the car in Grafton, then back up @ 4am to finish the drive, glad i missed the traffic, unfortunately the bypasses won't be finished for 15 years

Took us 2 1/2 hours to go 20 kms - the NSW highways/freeways are a disgrace. Vic built bypasses around bottlenecks 20 years ago - only 5 years late, not 25. Saw a couple of guys stretching their legs in the emergency lane nearly wiped out by a WRX - didn't appreciate the assholes either.

Yep - 1 1/2 hours for 7km. Saw the guys driving on the shoulder. Dangerous idiots. I will probably be flying up next year

Yep, me too. Can anyone explain to me the scientific/engineering reason such a traffic delay occurs simply because 2 lanes a merging into 1. Once the merge happened, traffic flow speeded up.

Probably by next year this bottleneck will have been solved. Seemed to be a lot of roadworks around this area. Think there have been good improvements on the Pacific Highway over last couple years of driving up to Bluesfest.

Bobby Long & other artists cds got me through. Called that one of my "stop, revive, survive" breaks.
