This is Ollie McGill on the Mojo stage at Bluesfest 2023. Along with Felix Riebl, they are the remaining two-thirds of the founding trio of The Cat Empire. The band’s history includes over 40 musicians, enough for a chamber orchestra. After their last gig with the original lineup at Bluesfest 2022 there were a number of changes in the lineup. This made the reformed Kitten Empire the most anticipated show at Bluesfest 2023. Who would be there? What songs would they play? Would they still have that festival energy they are famous for? Watch this space for a full review of their comeback gig and their latest album, and more Blusefest stories throughout the year.

Tickets for the 2024 festival are available via the Bluesfest Website.
