Bluefest 2013 lineup guessinggame

We spend plenty of time on FasterLouder trying to guess the lineups for the all the festival lineups placing bets, stalking twitter accounts and combing interviews for hints about upcoming tours. And now Bluesfest is getting in on the lineup guessing game with their own “Guess Who” challenge.

Bluesfest wants you to guess ten of the artists that will be on the festival’s first artist in September and if you get them right you could win prizes including backstage passes and VIP upgrades.

All you need to do to enter the guessing game is to pick ten artists (no more, no less) and email your answers to: info@bluesfest.com.au

Generally around 15-20 artists are announced in the first announcement. The first announcement for 2012 included Roger Daltrey, Earth Wind & Fire, The Pogues, John Butler Trio, Buddy Guy, Maceo Parker, Bettye LaVette, Steve Earle, Justin Townes Earle and Trombone Shorty.

Sounds like the ideal competition for the FasterLouder forums – so post your ten predictions here for the chance to win a prize pack from us as well.

Tom Waits and Neil Young would get me there for the first time for sure. And My Morning Jacket should play every year.

Has Bill Withers toured since the 80's? I suspect they'd want at least one act that would be bigger than these in terms of getting people through the gate.

I picked the 10 acts I'd like to see that maybe likely, not the hologram bands the sheeple want...

There is a bit of talk on the Bluesfest Forum about Bill Withers, seems like he wants to start touring again?

I never go to Bluesfest anyway, it's so hit and miss, but they always guarantee some great sideys.
