BluesFest 2018 Presents, Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters and Van Morrison

With special guest: Colin Macleod

BluesFest has added two superstar acts to the line-up for this year’s event with former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant and visionary singer-songwriter Van Morrison both confirmed for the festival, which returns to 3Arena, Dublin in October. Both Plant and Morrison will perform full sets at 3Arena on Sunday October 28th.

Plant, who appeared at BluesFest London as a special guest for Bill Wyman's 80th birthday show in 2016, is widely regarded as one of the greatest rock and roll frontmen of all time and will bring his Sensational Space Shifters to Dublin to perform classic Led Zeppelin material alongside tracks from his acclaimed solo projects including Carry Fire, his eleventh solo album, which was released in October 2017. Van Morrison comes to the festival for a career-spanning set that will include music from his new studio album You're Driving Me Crazy, which is released next month.

Robert Plant:

“It's been way over 50 years since I first shared the stage with Van Morrison; and his band were positioned no.2 on the charts with ‘Here Comes the Night'. His style then and now remains unique and loaded with deep soul. I'm looking forward to an exciting and dynamic night.”

Also confirmed for BluesFest 2018 are John Fogerty who will perform a Credence Clearwater Revival greatest hits set with special guests Steve Miller Band at 3Arena, Dublin on Friday 26th October.
