Have a true Blue weekend, right here in Cairns

The 2nd annual Blues Festival is set to go off like a rocket from tomorrow at Fogarty park, right on the Cairns Esplanade.
There are over 20 fantastic performers lined up from around Australia and overseas, plus bars, food stalls, and traders to keep every muso-lover happy for the long weekend.
Some of the acts include The Backsliders, Chris Wilson, Dallas Frasca, Geoff Achison and The Souldiggers, Mason Rack Band, Doc Span, 8 Ball Aitken, The Blues Preachers, Mark Easton and the UK’s Bex Marshall.
Organisers say that the two-day festival program promises blues in a "myriad of styles, from pre-WW2 through to modern interpretations."
The Cairns Mototcycle Restorers Club will also have a display, along with the Cairns Hod Rod Club. There'll also be the popular Emerging Artist stage, and the kids will be looked after with their very own children's tent.
Online and telephone ticket sales (Tel 1300 855 835) close at 5pm today. If you miss out, you'll have to get them at the gate from 10am on Saturday or Sunday:-

And yes, there will be pass-outs up to 7pm (nothing to do with the lads from Trinity Bay High passing out).
