Bluesfest welcomes Tash Sultana, one of Australia’s most talented up and coming artists to their stage in 2018. As a young, dynamic Melbourne artist, Tash has been creating waves and generating massive street buzz by playing sold out shows all over the world. She has made a name for herself busking on the streets of Melbourne and having homemade videos go viral getting millions of views online.
Since having her hands wrapped around a guitar at the age of three, the self-taught artist quickly developed her own unique style that has people lining up to see her perform.
The young, one-woman powerhouse has sold out every headline show booked across multiple countries and played dozens of high profile festivals including Laneway and Splendour In The Grass 2017. Both singles ‘Jungle’ and ‘Notion’ were quick to receive high rotation on Australian broadcaster triple j with ‘Jungle’ been added as mega hit of the week on Netherlands 3FM radio and is picking up rotation on stations across North America.
Accolades include a #8 ARIA album chart, topping the iTunes chart with her “Notion EP”, ‘Jungle’ coming in at #3 on triple j’s hottest 100, exceeding gold sales for ‘Jungle’, winning a J award in 2016, an APRA Award nomination and tens of millions of streams Worldwide.
Her vocal shines with a magical quality, she has a natural gift for melody and her virtuosic guitar playing is from another planet. Tash is the very definition of a Bluesfest artist, and will no doubt have one of the most talked about sets at the festival.
