From humble beginnings in 1990 as a one-day event, the festival now takes place over five days every Easter, with over 200 performances in front of crowds of up to 125,000 patrons. In 2019, the festival celebrated its 30th anniversary.
Following a select expression of interest process, Moshtix was awarded the prestigious account by Bluesfest and will become the festival’s primary ticketing platform for their 2020 event onwards.
Moshtix Managing Director Harley Evans said: “Moshtix is incredibly proud to be partnering with Bluesfest. We’re thrilled to bring our experience as Australia’s leading festival ticketing provider to the event and ‘make live easy’ for Bluesfest fans through our suite of products and services.”
Bluesfest Director Peter Noble OAM said: “It’s an exciting time for Bluesfest as we prepare to announce our first lineup for the 31st Byron Bay Bluesfest next Easter. I’m really looking forward to working together with the Moshtix and Ticketmaster teams to help us make Bluesfest 2020 the best yet.”

In February 2019, Moshtix joined the Ticketmaster family. Not only will Bluesfest now have access to Moshtix’s innovative technology and extensive database of engaged event-goers, but the festival will also have access to Ticketmaster’s unrivalled marketing, distribution, and reach.
