ORGANISERS OF Byron Bay’s 25,000-capacity Bluesfest are relieved that they site they own has escaped the bush fires that have ravaged many parts of the country.

Festival and Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm site owner Peter Noble plans to make a donation to the Australian Red Cross in recognition of the work the charity has done during the crisis (see news page 4).

“We are thankful our site has been spared from the fires, and our ongoing work in land care and Koala Management continues,” says NBoble.

“Whilst the drought killed several koala food tree plantings, we continue to have many grow and reach maturity.”

Meanwhile, Noble says a highlight of the 9-13 April event will be Alanis Morrisette performing her seminal album Jagged Little Pill in its entiretym marking  25 years since the release.

Among the other artistes appearing are Crowded House, Patti Smith and her bandm and  Tori Kelly.

Tickets range between A$160 (US$106) for a day ticket to A$625 (US$415) for a five-day ticket.
