Our Riverboats Deluxe ticket has proven so popular that we've had to commandeer a second paddlesteamer! Ladies & Gentleman meet The PS Hero, a 140-year-old marvel that will be steaming up and down the River Murray on the Saturday morning of the festival weekend - with our Pevensey cruise all but sold out seats aboard this one won't last long either! http://riverboatsmusic.com.au/festival-deluxe/
A huge congratulations to Riverboats 2015 artist Dan Sultan for taking out Best Male Artist AND Best Album at The Age Music Victoria Awards awards last night!
Artist of the week time! Well known as the front woman for iconic Aussie rock band Magic Dirt, Adalita has emerged as one of this country's most formidable solo artists. She'll be hitting the Riverboats stage with her full band on the Saturday afternoon, and if she plays this one we'll be very happy little vegemites...
Double J is celebrating the career of Riverboats 2015 artist Sarah Blasko tonight from 8.00pm. We're told they'll be interviews, live performances, rarities and plenty of the music that the country has fallen so deeply for over the past decade - well worth tuning in!
If you haven't organised accommodation for the festival weekend our friends at Merool on the Murray are offering one of the best festival camping packages we've come across - we're talking a camp site for two nights, your three-day Riverboats ticket and a complementary shuttle bus to and from Aquatic Reserve - and all for $130! Did we mention their campground has over two kms of Murray River frontage and an amazing swimming pool? Yeah that's right.
For bookings phone Merool on 5480 9111 or firstname.lastname@example.org
