JK-47 Announced On BLUESFEST 2021

BLUESFEST have made a powerful final addition to their 2021 lineup with the uber-talented Bundjalung indigenous rapper, JK-47!

 

Whether you know him as the 2020 Triple J Unearthed Artist of the Year, or from his jaw-dropping Like A Version where he put a fantastic twist on 'Changes' by 2Pac, you would already know that JK-47, uber-talented Indigenous artist, is a force to be reckoned with. It's no surprise to see acts like Illy, ChillinIT, Briggs, Nerve and many more showing him love.

At the age of fourteen, JK-47 began penning rhymes & rapping. Over the years his name has become all too familiar, not just on home turf in the shire of Tweed, but also right across the Australian hip-hop landscape. His ability to put pen to pad & produce timeless lyrics, painting pictures with his music, is second to none.

Having already scored a triple j feature album on his debut, nominations for Best New Act at the 2021 Rolling Stone Awards and Acclaim Magazine Rookie of the Year, and being booked for festivals like Yours & Owls, Fresh Produce and Adelaide Festival, you can’t deny JK-47 is well on the right path for a bright future.
