Iconic Blues on Broadbeach comes of age with stellar 2022 line-up

Blues on Broadbeach

Now in its 21st year, Blues on Broadbeach, one of Australia’s largest music festivals, is proud to announce the second tranche of extraordinary Blues artists added to an already stellar bill.

Headliners James Morrison Motown Experience, Robben Ford (US) and R.L. Boyce (US) are being joined by Karise Eden, Osaka Monaurail (Japan), Blue Empress All-Stars, Matty T Wall and many more, in a 2022 line-up you won’t want to miss.

This extraordinary collection of international and national artists will take to the stage on the Gold Coast over four days from 19-22 May.

Festival Director Mark Duckworth said this year’s Blues on Broadbeach is all about returning to its roots:

We want to continue to bring our festival fans a collection of artists which celebrate all the different music styles in the Blues genre as well as a few surprises. It is so important to us that we bring out not just the big names, but those artists that are true to the festival and represent the very best of what Blues music has to offer. With our international borders finally open again, we’re excited to welcome to our stages some truly incredible international artists and some unique performances which you won’t see anywhere else and won’t want to miss.

Blues on Broadbeach is fortunate enough to welcome a wide variety of talent from all over the world.

The sensational Osaka Monaurail is Japan’s premiere funk orchestra, ready to make waves on Australia’s shores at Blues on Broadbeach. With their sharp suits, synchronised routines, and powerful horn section, Osaka Monaurail will have feet movin’ and hips shakin’ from the moment they hit the stage.

They’ll be joined by Blue’s songbird Karise Eden. Expect a powerful, engrossing, and bold performance, and we are thrilled to have her join this stellar bill of Blues artists.

In an exciting Blues on Broadbeach first, Blue Empress All-Stars, an ensemble of Australia’s finest Blues and Roots artists, will grace our stages in 2022 in all their diversely-talented glory.

One of four festivals proudly produced by Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC), Blues on Broadbeach plays a vital role in helping drive visitation and stimulate the Gold Coast economy, providing a significant economic injection to local businesses.
