Midnight Oil to headline rescheduled Bluesfest 2021 this October

We wanted you to hear it first from us that our new album will be launched with an appearance at Bluesfest in Byron Bay on October 1. All the gig info is at and we’re looking forward to being part of this great festival’s welcome return.
This new batch of songs was recorded at the same time as “The Makarrata Project” but explores different territory. We’ve given it the working title “Show Of Hands”. Expect to hear more info about the album and Australasian touring plans in the months ahead.
All the best from Jim, Martin, Peter and Rob
