The second annual Riverboats Music Festival this weekend looks to be well attended if ticket sales are anything to go by.RUTH CLAYTON February 13, 2013 4:13am
Riverboats Music Festival tickets are nearly sold out.
Echuca-Moama and District Tourism chief executive Pete White said about three quarters of tickets had been sold already, three times what was sold this time last year.
He said residents who had not yet purchased tickets should get in fast to avoid disappointment.
‘‘On the weekend, it will sell out and locals need to be aware that if they want to buy tickets they do need to buy them now,’’ Mr White said.
‘‘In light of that, the Saturday last year, we were in a position where we were nearly turning people away.
‘‘The tickets are flying.’’
Mr White said the tickets had been selling steadily over the past few weeks.
The capacity for the venue, at Echuca’s Aquatic Reserve, is 4100 people.
Mr White said this was to ensure the festival retained its relaxed atmosphere.
