The Riverboats Music Festival is the Murray River's premiere contemporary music event.
Staged in the twin towns of Echuca-Moama, the festival takes place under towering river red gums in a natural amphitheatre next to the mighty Murray. Historic paddle steamers meander past all weekend, and occasionally the cockatoos get a bit raucous at sunset. There is one stage and plenty of room for dancing, brilliant artists and delicious regional food and wine. It's one of the prettiest, inexpensive, laid back, family friendly festivals in Australia - you'll love it.
It takes around two and half hours to get to Echuca-Moama from Melbourne, and there are plenty of great places to stay when you get there.
Confirmed to play Riverboats 2014 are The Cat Empire, Tim Finn, Ian Moss, Paul Dempsey, Don Walker, The Basics, Wagons, Dan Kelly's Dream Band, Thelma Plum, Tinpan Orange, Mojo Juju, Sweat Jean and Liz Stringer.Visit Website
