After the 2021 Riverboats Music Festival was cancelled due to COVID-19, the organisers behind it have announced Riverboats Cruising - a three day series in regional Victoria of on-river performances aboard Echuca's historic paddlesteamer fleet this April.

Taking place from 16 - 18 April, Riverboats Cruising will present eight intimate live sets from Henry Wagons, Bob Evans, Jen Cloher and Thando performing with Horns Of Leroy

Each performance will see music fans taken on a cruise down the Murray River aboard the historic Pride Of The Murray and PS Canberra paddlesteamers.

Festival Director David Frazer said: “Whilst COVID sadly forced the cancellation of Riverboats in 2021, we’re so excited to be bringing some of our most beloved artists back to Echuca-Moama for this incredible series of intimate gigs. Echuca’s paddlesteamers are just superb, and to be able to kick back with a drink as you meander down the Murray listening to these artists is a truly unique experience.”

Riverboats Music Festival is expected to return to Echuca-Moama in February 2022.
