The announcement has triggered a storm of requests from fans who already have their dream line-ups planned out.

The acts suggested by fans range from Bluesfest staples, bands that have played the Blues in the past and some that may be straight-out wishful thinking.

Among the suggestions are David Bowie, Stevie Wonder, Dollie Parton, ZZ Top, Black Keys, Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, Michael Franti, Dan Sultan, Black Keys, Tom Petty, George Clinton, and Mike De Velta.
