Riverboats Music Festival16, 17 & 18 February 2018
The Riverboats Music Festival takes place under towering river red gums in a natural amphitheatre next to the Murray River. Historic paddle steamers meander past all weekend, and occasionally the corollas get a bit raucous at sunset. We have one stage and plenty of room for dancing, brilliant artists and delicious regional food and wine. It’s probably one of the prettiest, inexpensive, laid-back, family-friendly festivals in Australia. Held on the 3rd weekend in February every year.
What a fantastic 2017 Riverboats Music Festival we had, with a stellar lineup led by Paul Kelly & Charlie Owen, Hoodoo Gurus, Husky and Mia Dyson alongside some of the most exciting names in Australian music.
The Riverboats Music Festival returns to Echuca Moama from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 February, 2018, for three glorious summer days of music amongst the gums.
*Children 12 & under free
2018 Line up to be announced September 2017.
