RIVERBOATS MUSIC FESTIVAL RETURNS IN 2023 WITH MARLON WILLIAMS, SPIDERBAIT, C.W. STONEKING AND MORE!
Tickets on sale now
Multi-award winning Riverboats Music Festival has today announced the lineup for its 2023 event, scheduled to take place at a new temporary location at Echuca’s Victoria Park Reserve from February 17-19, 2023.
Staged on Yorta Yorta country, Riverboats 2023 will present performances by Marlon Williams (NZ), Spiderbait, C.W. Stoneking & His Primitive Horn Orchestra, The Rolling Stones Revue featuring Adalita, Phil Jamieson & Tex Perkins, The Whitlams, Felix Riebl, Alice Skye, Tami Neilson (NZ), Thornbird, Katy Steele, Andy Golledge Band, WILSN, Bones & Jones, Watty Thompson, Bud Rokesky and MC Brian Nankervis (Rockwiz).
The new venue is a notable modification to this year’s program. The festival’s traditional home at Aquatic Reserve on the banks of the Murray River has transformed into a natural wetland as a result of region’s recent flooding, resulting in a temporary relocation for Riverboats’ 11th instalment.
“Echuca-Moama has gone through an incredibly challenging period over the last few weeks, and our hearts go out to all those affected by the recent floods.
Riverboats has been part of the Echuca-Moama community for over 10 years now, and whilst we’re sad to be leaving Aquatic Reserve next year, we can’t wait to put on a spectacular show at Victoria Park in a few months time”
says Festival Director Dave Frazer.
In partnership with Murray River Paddlesteamers, Riverboats 2023 will once again offer a limited series of intimate sideshows aboard the historic PS Pevensey paddlesteamer. Music fans will be given the opportunity to cruise down the river to the soundtrack of Alice Skye, Felix Riebl, Andy Golledge, WILSN, Bones & Jones and Watty Thompson.
Having sold out in just six days last year, tickets to Riverboats 2023 are likely to be in high demand. Access to the family-friendly event start from just $75 and traditionally move very quickly following the program announcement.
Dave Frazer reflects, “Riverboats will once again deliver a remarkable lineup of Australian artists in 2023, with some award-winning Kiwi’s thrown in for good measure. To be able to present international acts of the calibre of Marlon Williams alongside homegrown legends including Spiderbait, The Whitlams and C.W. Stoneking is a truly exciting thing, and we can’t wait to get back to Echuca-Moama in a few months’ time”
