Riverboats Music Festival

Held on the banks of the Murray River, the Riverboats Music Festival is still a little tacker in festival terms, but boy has it made a big impression. Some early details have emerged about 2015’s event, so let’s get right to it. You have the wonderful talents of Dan Sultan, Adalita, The Whitlams, Sarah Blasko, Stella Angelico and The Switch (switch), Diesel, Fraser A. Gorman, Mick Harvey, Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses, Matt Walker & The Lost Ragas, Sal Kimber & The Rollin’ Wheel, Raised by Eagles and The Bamboos. 2013’s event scored a four star review from The Sydney Morning Herald. Here is a snippet of what they had to say: “In its third year, the Echuca Riverboats Music Festival boasted a bill worth a road trip from anywhere despite ominous skies that opened as forecast on Ian Moss’ opening night headlining performance. Umbrellas? No problem here, where the nearest picnic rug was at least four eskies away.” The fourth annual Riverboats Music Festival takes place across February 13, 14 & 15 beneath towering river red gums in a natural amphitheatre next to the mighty Murray. Sound good? It is! Tickets are available as single-day passes and weekend passes. Full details can be found through riverboatsmusic.com.au.
