Tex Perkins headlines Riverboat Music Festival lineup

The sun-soaking riverside festival returns for 2019

Get ready to soak up some sun on the banks of the Murray River, because the Riverboat Music Festival is back for 2019.

Showcasing Australian musical talent, Riverboats has a killer line up prepared for the three days. Take on the tunes of Tex Perkins and the Tennessee Four, who will be embodying Johnny Cash in their Far From Folsom performance.

Sing along to well-loved classics by Mark Seymour, kick back to the dynamic and emotive tones of Augie March, be swept away to the dreamy, sultry vocals of Gabriella Cohen and be tantalised by the fragile and ethereal melodies of Leah Senior. Taking charge as festival MC once again is Rockwiz’s Brian Nankervis.

Festivalgoers can enjoy the famous paddlesteamer sideshows as they cruise down the Murray to intimate acoustic performances. The famous annual breakfast at the Beechworth Bakery will also be making a return with live sets by Benny Baker. All in all, a leisurely weekend not to be missed.
