Music for everyone on the third day of Bluesfest

FROM psychedelic rock to gospel and punk, everything was on offer at Bluesfest last night.

A sell-out crowd once again flocked to Tyagarah to see the likes of Robert Plant, Iggy and the Stooges, The Blind Boys of Alabama and Status Quo perform.

The skies remained clear for the night, allowing punters to overflow around the sides of the Mojo and Crossroads tents.

Mojo was already full by 5pm for American rockers Wilco's performance before gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama brought a bit of Southern soul to the mix.

It was standing room only for Robert Plant's highly anticipated show with the Sensational Space Shifters.

Meanwhile at Crossroads, women were throwing their bras on stage for Iggy and the Stooges.

Lesser known acts were also rocking the other stages.

Saskwatch had the crowd grooving to a funky version of Kylie Minogue and Robbie William's Kids.

What do you do if you keep getting mistaken as the member of a band?

Well you invite them on stage to perform with you of course.

That's what Canada's Ben Caplan did after Aussies kept mistaking him for a member of The Beards thanks to his own impressive beard.

Caplan also invited fellow Nova Scotia native Matt Anderson up on stage to perform with him in a dynamic set at the APRA tent.

Today's Easter Sunday Bluesfest line-up features The Voice winner Karise Eden, the Royal Southern Brotherhood, Xavier Rudd, Rufus Wainwright, Mavis Staples, Fat Freddy's Drop, The Cat Empire and Melbourne Ska Orchestra.
