The Deni Blues and Roots Festival won the Bronze Award for New Tourism Development and Gold for Festivals and Events.
The festival, held in Deniliquin , New South Wales, gives music fans in Victoria and South Australia who struggle to get to Bluesfest an opportunity to see some of the world’s greatest musicians in a reasonably priced festival environment closer to home.
The 2013 event brought Santana, Jason Mraz, Status Quo, Steve Miller Band, Bonnie Raiit and Jimmy Cliff into the regional New South Wales town just 3 hours drive from Melbourne and 6 hours from Adelaide.
The Easter 2014 event has more first class entertainment from John Mayer, Dr John & The Nite Trippers, The Doobie Brothers, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Gary Clark Jr, Russell, Morris, Jasmine Rae and Cash Savage and the Last Drinks confirmed for Deni Blues & Roots Festival 2014.
The Deni Blues and Roots Festival is a co-production by Chugg Entertainment, Rob Potts Entertainment Edge and Play On The Plains Event Management.
“Deni’s got such a great vibe surrounding it and it’s going to be a mainstay in the event calendar. We want to make sure that people can come and check out this great festival and see what it’s all about – and what better way than with a free place to stay,” Michael Chugg said.
Deni Blues and Roots 2014 will be held on April 19 and 20, 2014 in Deniliquin.
