The multi-award winning Riverboats Music Festival will feature performances from a number of acts from Australia and overseas, at a new venue (Echuca’s Victoria Park Reserve) in February 2023.
The new venue is a notable change to the program and results from the transformation of the traditional festival home into a natural wetland following recent flooding in the area. This is a temporary relocation for the 11th installment of Riverboats.
“Echuca-Moama has gone through an incredibly difficult time over the past few weeks, and our hearts go out to everyone affected by the recent flooding,” said festival director Dave Frazer.
“Riverboats has been part of the Echuca-Moama community for over 10 years now, and while we’re sad to be leaving the aquatic reserve next year, we look forward to putting on a spectacular show at Victoria Park in a few months. .”
There will also be a number of intimate side shows in partnership with Murray River Paddlesteamers. Music fans will have the opportunity to cruise the river, to the soundtrack of Alice Skye, Felix Riebl, Andy Golledge, WILSN, Bones & Jones and Watty Thompson.
“Riverboats will once again deliver a remarkable lineup of Australian performers in 2023, with a few award-winning Kiwis for good measure,” continues Dave Frazer. “Being able to feature international artists of the caliber of Marlon Williams alongside local legends like Spiderbait, The Whitlams and CW Stoneking is truly exciting, and we look forward to returning to Echuca-Moama in a few months.”
Tickets are on sale now.
