Would anyone out there have a copy of the playing schdule from 2000?

I keep a list of musicians I've seen over the years and Bluesfest in 2000 was the only year that I didn't put onto my computer and have since lost the hardcopy. It's easy to get the list of artists, and I remember most of them, but it's the playing times I want.

Can any of you kind people help?

It was my first fest, so of course I have very fond memories. Burning Spear, the late Lucky Dube, Junior Brown, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jonny Lang, Terrance Simien and Psycho Zydeco together in the Juke Joint (phew!!!) to name just a few.

Interesting to note John Butler Trio in tiny print in the second last line of the mail out poster from 2000.


After seeing them play in Jambalaya to a smallish crowd we happened to catch them playing at a hotel in Yamba after easter for a mighty $3 cover charge .


My how quickly things change.


2001 they appear about mid poster and thereafter pretty much as headliners.


Can't think of any others that have had such a stunning rise in popularity at bluesfest

Jason Mraz - from 3:15pm in the Crossroads on Friday to 8:15pm in the MoJJJo on the Monday opening for Ben Harper, in the space of 12 months. That's not a bad rise.

And I continue to maintain that Hat fitz should get a headline slot one year :-)

The Waifs, saw them for the first time in The Juke Joint in 2001! and we could easily get through the door (didn't have to climb in the window).

Interesting to see the story in today's SMH where JBT attributes his meteoric rise to fame to a storm at BluesFest blowing people into the tent. I recall that early afternoon in jambalaya with about 50 other people - great afternoon!

Amen, and didn't he deserve it. The man was simply a blow away. I remember crawlin into the Juke Joint through the window to literally hang from the ceiling to see him. One of the artists that made Bluesfest legendary...

Think Ben Harper would probably be the biggest worldwide commercial success story to come out of Blues Fest.

(Realise that to many on this BB that is probably a shame - as they would have preferred seeing Ben H at the first shows in the smaller tent at Belongil the first time round. When there definitely was a buzz about him & he lived up to the hype. The fact he has achieved commercial success & now draws a huge younger crowd takes the edge off his appeal these days.)

RL Burnside probably the most significant. Another not mentioned yet - BFest helped Johnnie Johnson promote solo career in Aust as well.

Don't think anyone who has gone to BFest can complain about the quality of the artists - new, untested or otherwise. Mr Noble, Oxford and others have always been very astute in their selection of performers. That has been the fantastic thing about BFest over the years. Hearing artists you mightn't be familiar with.
