My love she speaks like silence
Without ideals or violence
She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful
Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire
- Bob Dylan, Love Minus Zero / No Limit
At Bay of Palms Resort, we have been humming nowadays to songs that have excited our souls, and made our toes tap to guitars strums. It is a time of anticipation not merely for guests in our Elanora Accommodation, but also for us - we are just as excited about the Bob Dylan’s upcoming performances in this year’s Byron Bay Bluesfest.
The folk rock icon will lead an assembly of some of the world’s most stirring musicians, including blues legend BB King and Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. If you have not had the chance to catch the tandem live yet, the Byron Bay Bluesfest provides the most promising opportunity to see them with the matchless Dylan.
The Bluesfest, as you may know, began in 1990 at the Arts Factory in Byron Bay, New South Wales. It was the forerunner to other festivals like Big Day Out and Womadelaide, which still had not been organized then. From its humble birth in 1990 - when it attracted 6,000 Aussie music lovers - the five-day event now ropes in tens of thousand of musicians and holiday makers from all over the world. More importantly, the Byron Day Bluesfest brought about the infusion of Blues music to Australia.This year’s festival, however, promises to be even more powerful than the past events. As festival director Peter Noble asks: “Hang on, could this be the best festival lineup in Australian history?” For Byron Bay, it undoubtably is as 2011 brings about the first six-day bluesfest ever. The concert on the sixth day is headlined by Dylan and Elvis Costello so make sure to join us there. For a complete lineup of artists performing in Byron Bay from April 21 to 26, please click here.
Better yet, experience the most pleasurable holiday of your life and stay with us at our South Gold Coast Accommodation. We are only a 40 minute drive to the Byron Bay Bluesfest so you can laze around the beaches of Currumbin and Palm Beach before jamming at the concert.
