Tasmania’s premier blues event the Forth Valley Blues Festival is back bigger & better than ever this year on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th of March. That’s right – FRIDAY NIGHT! This year we have decided to expand the Festival and move the Friday night from the Bridge Hotel – Forth to the festival site because this event had simply outgrown the pub. With this move we have expanded the Friday night line-up to FIVE bands including Pete Cornelius and the DeVilles, Halfway to Forth, Claude Hay and the 2nd and 3rd place getters at the play-offs. As a special offer this year the Friday night will be FREE and included with your festival ticket price ….or $20 for the Friday night only. So with the great music from 10 bands on 2 stages on Saturday – headlined by Diesel, Ash Grunwald and Bondi Cigars plus Mia Dyson, Eugene Hideaway Bridges (USA), 19-Twenty, Claude Hay, Genevieve Chadwick, Karl S. Williams – Musical Fool, the Tas Play Off Winner and the 5 bands on Friday night – that’s 15 bands for $70. Now that is great value!

Brett’s Coaches is running a pick up and drop service in Devonport and Ulverstone area. Phone 0418369291 to make booking.

Ticket sales are ahead of last year’s at the same time so we might have a sell out festival this year! Don’t miss out, buy your ticket now from or at Red Hot Music & Red Hot Cd’s ph. (03)64242286
