This morning it has been announced that Mr. Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett, will play at this year's Bluesfest, flanked by his long-time band, the Coral Reefers.

Best known for his playful pop-cult hits "Cheeseburger in Paradise", "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" and "Margaritaville", Buffett will be performing exclusively at Bluesfest in April. It will be his first visit to Australia since his short run of secret, small venue shows in 2014.

The announcement follows a pair of line-up cancellations during December, with both Barry Gibb and Neil Young pulling out of performing at the Easter long-weekend Byron Bay festival.
