THE final Bluesfest announcement rolled in over night with John Fogerty filling the space left by Roger Daltrey.

Fogerty will now perform his Creedence Clearwater Revival album Green River in full, as well as the band's hits on the  closing night of the festival.

The performance will be the second for Fogerty who was already scheduled to perform on the Saturday night.

Organisers were left with a gap in the line-up after Daltrey pulled out of this year's festival due to a scheduling clash.
