Day one and there is already too many choices. Who to see and where to be? The answer… a bit of everything and everywhere. Entering the festival site was made sweet with the sounds of Lord Huron paving the way for a relaxing night at Bluesfest 2016.

I guess thats why Bluesfest has been going strong for 27 years and still finds new audiences by stepping out of the mould and bringing artists like Kendrick Lamar into the fold.

Mötley Crüe at Brisbane Entertainment Centre - May 19, 2015
The Brisbane Entertainment Centre was packed to the rafters with eager fans coming out to farewell MOTLEY CRUE on their last ever stop in Brisbane as part of ‘The Final Tour’. And opening for Motley Crue was none other than the master of macabre theatrical rock ALICE COOPER.
