Having already announced a November 25 and 26 event date, organisers are now proud to announce an epic 53-act line-up, a veritable smorgasbord of the best rising talent the great south east can muster across three jam-packed stages.

Day two of Bluesfest.
For day 2 of Bluesfest we were blessed with beautiful weather to set the mode of the day.
Once again impressed with the festival layout that offers easy access to all stages, along with plenty of food stalls and bars, plenty of shelter *should you need it*, amenities aplenty. Overall verdict… fantastic!
Some Of Our Day 2 Highlights
Having seen Tijuana Cartel perform a number of times over the past few years, we were eager to arrive early and catch their 12:30pm set at the Mojo stage. Their style of infused Latin American/Afro Cuban break beat + world music was the perfect way to start the festival day and get you up and dancing.

Review by: Hannah Collins
Another year gone by, another 20 odd festivals down and yet nothing could prepare you for the 3 day onslaught that has been 2010’s annual epicentre of music extravaganza.
SITG photos here…
Splendour In the Grass, is as its name suggests and a culmination of some of the best local and international acts the current mainstream music scene has to offer. Selling out in record time… four months before the gates crashed open on a feature of the most sought after bands on the international circuit; and turning the page on it’ first decade amidst the front line of dramatic competition that encompasses the Australian festival rotation, the Splendour team were proud to announce that for 2010… the overwhelmingly ecstatic crowds could grace Splendours presence in the outlandish setting of Woodfordia, better known as the home of the Woodford folk Festival.

Gold coast Parklands once again played host to the Good Vibrations Festival and all its followers this February. The party had already begun before the gates opened; with crowds of revellers sipping away on their hip flasks and discussing their plans of attack for the day ahead.
With the gates open the party officially kicked off with a cruisy set from the aptly named Cool Calm Collective on the Roots stage. Continuing the relaxed start to the day were Tijuana Cartel on the main stage where a large crowd gathered, in all their costumed glory, to witness a set that evolved from an impressive acoustic flamenco demonstration to a full blown aussie hip-hop act. Such a diverse act couldn’t have been more appropriate for such a diverse and amped crowd; leaving everyone buzzing in anticipation for Bluejuice.

Tijuana Cartel – @ The Troubadour 17 July 2009

||Let’s begin by saying that tonight was a sold out night, which is an incredible success for any band. No matter in which venue or which city this is achieved at, once you see the sold out sign outside the venue you know that the band about to perform have something special to offer.
Opening the night’s proceeding was A French Butler Called Smith. Two years worth of solid touring have propelled this pleasant five member band to a position where they will surely soon begin to headline their own shows. Their Gypsy Latin style rings through the room and sets the mood for the remainder of the night. They mix genres beautifully and produce an excellent warm up set. Please keep an eye out for these guys in the future for they are surely on the path to a successful career.
