Due to scheduling challenges that have arisen for Vika & Linda, our 2023 AgnesBluesFest has a change of Headliner. The party in paradise will rock on with Busby Marou now getting ready to rumble the main stage!
Multi-award winners and chart-toppers Busby Marou are fast becoming a National Australian Treasure. AgnesBluesFest can’t wait to welcome them as Marquee Stage Headliners in February 2023.
Queenslander Tom Busby and Torres Strait Islander Jeremy Marou have been playing music together for over a decade since their initial music connection at a Rockhampton pub. Their potent chemistry drives Busby Marou and that unwritten agenda, a simple intangible understanding between them, continues to drive them into exciting new chapters in their remarkable career.
Busby Marou have gained the reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working live bands, best known for their distinctly Australian storytelling and gifted musicianship. Onstage, a key element is the intertwining of vocal interplay of two lifelong mates.
Their success includes four ARIA Charting albums. The self-titled album is certified ARIA Gold, while their most recent albums The Great Divide and Farewell Fitzroy debuted in the Top 5 and Postcards From The Shell House was Busby Marou’s first ARIA #1 album. They have been nominated for multiple ARIA awards and have won 4 X APRA awards, Triffid album of the year, multiple QLD music and Deadly awards. They have millions of global streams across the four album releases.
Their music and the musicians themselves have featured in a number of marketing campaigns for Tourism and Events Queensland, including the recent Days Like This and Seize the Days campaigns, which feature a cover of the Van Morrison song ‘Days Like This’. They have supported international artists including Elton John, Michael Buble, Rodriguez, Dolly Parton, KD Lang, James Blunt, Bryan Adams, the Beach Boys, Zac Brown Band and Passenger and have performed at many major Festivals around the world.
