Established in 1993 The Thredbo Blues Festival, is a summer highlight in the Australian music calendar for Blues and Roots fans and is much-anticipated every January. Thredbo, in the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales, transforms into a blues haven, inviting music enthusiasts from near and far. For three days the festival brings together a diverse lineup of international and some of the country’s top Blues and Roots artists who unleash their rocking and swinging tunes across the mountains.

Past festivals have seen performances from the likes of Ray Beadle Band, Karen Lee Andrews, and Jeff Lang & Alison Ferrier, showcasing the rich talent Australia has to offer in the blues genre.

Thredbo Village, with its intimate bars, cozy restaurants, and stunning outdoor settings, provides the perfect backdrop for this musical extravaganza. Attendees can expect more than just music; the festival is also a celebration of good food, fine wine, and vibrant atmosphere. With various activities available, from mountain biking to retail therapy, there’s something for everyone.


The festival is not just about the evening concerts. Daytime events, set against the picturesque mountains, offer a unique experience. And for those who love a late-night jam, the Sunday night sessions are a must-attend.

The Thredbo Blues Festival is a must for anyone looking to experience the best of blues music in a spectacular setting.
