Thredbo Blues 2020 Launches the New Look Alpine Bar
Posted on Thursday, 24th of October 2019
The Line up for Thredbo Blues Festival 2020 is out and, as usual, it looks amazing. In it’s 26th year Thredbo Blues has a loyal following of fans who come every year in Mid January to soak up the fresh alpine air and listen to some of Australia’s best blues players. The event kicks off this year on January 17th 2020. You can still buy an earlybird festival pass for the weekend for $139 for all gigs and including free chairlift access for the weekend. Check out our accommodation packages here.
Thredbo Blues is a “Boutique”event, We don’t have tens of thousands of festival goers camping out early to get the best pozzy and queuing past sniffer dogs on the way into a soon to be mud covered paddock. Thredbo Blues is cool, clean and very easy to get around. And while you might see some bigger names at a larger festival, I can almost guarantee you won’t hear better music. The performer line ups for Thredbo Blues typically have phenomenal talent from a broad range of genres, all with a blues connection and a love of playing.
This years line up has some blues royalty on the program with Tyrone Vaughan (nephew of Stevie Ray) flying in from Texas to play with the Darren Jack Band, also performing are festival favourites like Consumate Blues man Ray Beadle, Andrea Marr and Liza Ohlback, The Foreday Riders, Physco Zydeco and more. Also at Thredbo Blues 2020 are some up and coming bands like the Triple J unearthed Swamp Stompers. For soul lovers The Motown Review is back with their Aretha Franklin Tribute and the line up goes on from there with over 24 different acts performing over 60 gigs.
With smaller crowds you can get up close and personal with all of the performers and unlike other events, most of the 20 bands at the festival will play 3 gigs over the weekend so you can catch the ones you love again or catch the ones you missed that everyone is raving about.
The venues are also a unique part of Thredbo’s Charm. There are gigs at the top of the Mountain in the Eagles Nest restaurant with an amazing view along the full length of the Thredbo River Valley. There is new and improved “Alpine Bar” (R.I.P. the Poolside) with a large outdoor space and a spectacular mountain backdrop. There are funky little venues like Candlelight Lodge and The House of Ullr that bring quirk, charm and good times and cosy bars, night clubs and outdoor spaces. Best of all everything is within walking distance so you park your car for the weekend and wade into it.
