Audiences will also be captivated by the raw sounds of 2018 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Champions and also ‘discover the undiscovered’ with a
colourful collection of emerging singer/songwriters thrown into the mix. Performers like Juzzie Smith, a ridiculously talented One-man band, based in Byron Bay Australia. Juzzie’s unique style is bluesy/folk mixed into a groove of its own. Marked by an amazing ability to play up to six instruments at once combining the Guitar, harmonica and juggling percussion.
An eclectic group of performance artists will be painting and creating their masterpieces and an international menu to please all foodies will also be on offer, with well-known local restaurants dishing up with festival flair.
Included in the offering is a world-class Comedy Circus Stunt Show- skilled stunt man Joel Fenton will climb inside a balloon, juggle chainsaws, squeeze through a toilet seat and ride a huge unicycle.
Joel has been entertaining audiences internationally for 20 years, keeping them on the edge of their seats with his crazy antics.
