About the event

Legendary torchbearers, Gov’t Mule are returning! Hot off the back of the release of their new album The Tel-Star Sessions. Gov’t Mule has showcased its virtuosity, intelligence and breadth for more than two decades, which have encompassed 15 studio and live albums, millions of album and track sales and thousands of performances.

The band has become a human encyclopedia of timeless American music while adding to that canon with their signature sound. Their many fans at Bluesfest will relish the chance to hear their early improvisational interplay, an impressive skill that has since become a signature of Gov’t Mule’s albums and live shows. 

The buzz around Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real was immense when they last played in Australia during 2016, and has done nothing but intensify over the past 2 years. Lukas first piqued music lovers’ attention on his dad Willie Nelson’s 2012 album Heroes when their voices blended with potent DNA.

“Gov’t Mule is an essential, iconic American band”
