There is only one type of Dave Matthews Band fan and that is a hardcore one!

Bluesfest is incredibly excited to have the industry powerhouse play two shows at the 25th Anniversary of the festival and we know that the masses of fans, who have been requesting the jam-loving rockers presence at the festival year on year, will be too.

With a phenomenal career spanning 21 years, eight acclaimed studio albums, 11 major label released live albums, plus 26 Live Tracks releases, box office records and a worldwide adoring and somewhat fanatical fan base, Dave Matthews Band are certainly a force to be reckoned with.

The group’s latest album Away From The World (2012) is the eighth studio album and in true Dave Matthews Band style debuted at number one on Billboard 200. You can check out their second single ‘Rooftop’ here
