After an Award winning first year the Deni Blues and Roots Festival is confirmed to return over the Easter Weekend of 2014 - Saturday 19 April and Sunday 20 April - in Deniliquin in southern New South Wales. The first artists to be announced for the 2014 Festival are 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 with Early Bird Tickets going on sale tomorrow 16 October, 2013.
The two day Deni Blues & Roots Festival is unique for southern NSW and utilises the massive Deni Ute Muster site, which has had millions of dollars of permanent staging and lighting infrastructure installed in recent years. Both events have been underpinned by overwhelming community support, with an army of volunteers, contributions from many local businesses and great vision from the steering committee that established and built the site.
Iconic musicians from the US and UK, including Santana, Status Quo, Jason Mraz, Chris Isaak, Bonnie Raitt, Zac Brown Band and Newton Faulkner, descended on Deni earlier this year helping the Deni Blues & Roots Festival to take out the Best Festival Award at the Inland Tourism Awards earlier this year.
Co-promoter, Michael Chugg from Chugg Entertainment said "It's very exciting to be announcing the 1st acts for the 2nd Deni Blues & Roots Festival in April 2014. It was a great 2 days at our 1st Festival earlier this year and I can't wait to announce more acts! It will be an awesome line up of some of the world's best musicians and bands. I'm very excited about the great young OZ acts that will strut their stuff alongside John Mayer, the legendary Dr John and more"
Co-promoter Rob Potts, CEO, Rob Potts Entertainment said "It's quite amazing to see the line-up if massive international artists that have performed at Deniliquin (Deni) in the last two years which also includes Kelly Clarkson, Alan Jackson, Joe Nichols and Corb Lund as well as the list of artist who played the inaugural Deni Blues and Roots Festival.
"It's a testimony to the great concert and camping facilities and easy to get to location that the community has built to welcome concert and festival goers. Deni Blues & Roots 2014 is set to add another great list of local and international performers to this impressive list at Easter 2014, a time when Deni also has its best weather every year."
