Zac Brown Band and Beth Hart are the latest acts announced for this year’s BluesFest line-up.

The two new additions will perform on Saturday 27th October, during this year’s BluesFest which returns to The O2 from 25th to 28th October 2018. BluesFest will also feature performances from Robert Plant, Van Morrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty, Steve Miller Band, Robert Cray and Raphael Saadiq.

 

BluesFest Director Leo Green says, “We’ve been coveting Zac Brown Band since we started BluesFest back in 2011 and so we’re delighted to be adding them to the bill for this year’s event. And we’ve booked some incredible acts for BluesFest over the years but Beth Hart’s performance in 2014 stands out for me as one of the genuine highlights. She is a special talent and to have her as a special guest for Zac Brown Band on the Saturday night of this year’s festival is real coup for us.”

BluesFest launched in 2011 and has fast become one of Europe’s leading roots music festivals. It has presented performances from stars from the worlds of blues, jazz, soul, pop and R&B including BB King, Van Morrison, Robert Plant, Bobby Womack, Hall & Oates, Gregory Porter, Elvis Costello, Steely Dan, Dave Matthews Band, Bad Company, The Doobie Brothers, Jeff Beck, Mary J. Blige, Robert Cray, Tedeschi Trucks, Ronnie Wood, Maxwell, Mavis Staples, Chaka Khan, George Benson, Jamie Cullum, Chris Isaak, Tom Jones and Little Steven & The Disciples Of Soul.
