Chugg Entertainment and Rob Potts Entertainment Edge today announced the first artists and early bird ticket details for the Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival to be held under the Riverina sky in Deniliquin in Southern NSW over the 2015 Easter long weekend – Saturday, 4 April and Sunday, 5 April, 2015. The first artists to be announced for the 2015 Festival are Zac Brown Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Mavis Staples, Benny Walker, Dallas Frasca and Dale Winters.

The Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival is an award-winning festival now in its third year. 
 
The change of name to Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival gives the event a unique identity that more accurately reflects the spirit and location of a festival taking place on the expansive, striking landscape, under the big sky of the Riverina Plains.
 
Michael Chugg, Chairman of Chugg Entertainment, said “We’ve been so thrilled with the growth the festival has made in its short but busy life thus far. We’re really confident that now, in its third year, the punters know and trust that this fantastic Easter event is a trusted source of great music and great fun. The site works so wonderfully well, with the infrastructure that’s already there, but additionally with the stunning landscape with its low horizon and the dome of the big sky above, it’s just magic. We can’t wait!”
 
Rob Potts from Entertainment Edge added, “After two great years of beautiful sunny weather in the open air and non-stop music between the two big stages, we can’t wait to get back for 2015. The clamouring for the return of Zac Brown Band and Michael Franti & Spearhead has been deafening, and we’re thrilled that legends like George Clinton and Mavis Staples will be making their festival debut under the “big sky” next Easter”.
 
The two day Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival is unique for southern NSW and gives music fans in the Southern States access to a world class music event just three hours from Melbourne, four hours from Canberra and less than five hours by road from Adelaide. In its first two years, the event has played host to iconic musicians from the US, UK and Australia including Santana, John Mayer, Elvis Costello, Status Quo, The Doobie Brothers, Jason Mraz, Chris Isaak, Bonnie Raitt, Boz Scaggs, Russell Morris and many, many more.
 
Member for Murray-Darling John Williams said: “The announcement of the newly named Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival for 2015 is fantastic news, with the new title signalling to audiences the unique and stunning destination that is the NSW Riverina.”
 
“The NSW Government, through our tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, is proud to support the Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival next year as part of a fantastic calendar of events in Regional NSW,” Mr Williams said.
