Bluesfest has released its line-up for 2018 and it’s a big one, headlined by Lionel Richie and Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant.

The five-day Easter long weekend event will also feature the John Butler Trio, Tash Sultana, Jose Gonzalez and Prince’s former backing band The New Power Generation.

The festival will showcase more than 200 musicians from around the world, across seven stages at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just outside of Byron Bay.

Festival-goers can choose from a range of food and market stalls and beer gardens, and there’ll be entertainment for kids.

Tickets are on sale now. A single-day adult pass is $199, a three-day pass is $440 and five-days is $595.
