AmericanaFest, the renowned Nashville event focused on the Country and Americana genres will see Australian musical icons showcase alongside some of our most exciting up and coming artists in the week ahead, and SOUNDS AUSTRALIA and Blundstone will be there to support their journey.
Decking out Australian artists and offering giveaways at all the SOUNDS AUSTRALIA events, Blundstone will also be offering an opportunity for music fans to win their own pair of boots throughout the week, by sharing their AmericanaFest experience.
An all-Australian line up will grace the stage of the Bluebird Café, the legendary venue featured in the hit TV series Nashville, this Tuesday 12th September, followed by A Taste of Australia on the 15th September – an event that invites a number of the genre’s most influential professionals to an afternoon of networking with Australian industry members and special showcase sets from officially selected Australian artists at AmericanaFest 2017.
The week’s events will culminate at The 5 Spot on the 16th September with a barnstorming edition of THE AUSSIE BBQ with a line up featuring All Our Exes Live in Texas, Andy Golledge, Colin Hay, Falls, Grizzlee Train, Kasey Chambers, Larissa Tandy, Shane Nicholson, Taasha Coates and Tim Wheatley. The famous flagship event has graced festival stages in the USA, UK, India, Singapore, Canada and Germany.
From the heartland to the heart of the continent, SOUNDS AUSTRALIA then heads to Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, where Blundstone will proudly present THE AUSSIE BBQ. A stellar line up of Alex The Astronaut, Client Liaison, Dean Lewis, Geowulf, Gold Class, Joel Havea, Lisa Mitchell, PINES, Steve Smyth, Teischa, The Lazy’s and Tinpan Orange will perform over two stages at Molotow, on the 22nd September.
Adam Blake, Blundstone’s Global Head of Brand and Design:

Their versatility, comfort and style make them the choice not just for those in the limelight but are also the fans go to festival boot.
