The beautiful river port town of Echuca Moama is a busy destination year-round, with people flocking from all over Australia to enjoy a glass of wine in the local wineries, dine in the many gourmet restaurants, and relive a little bit of the past as they explore the historic paddle steamer port.
But over the weekend of 28-31 July, 2022 Echuca Moama will transform into the home of the Blues.
The Winter Blues Festival is in its 23rd year in 2022 and Echuca Moama is ready to welcome 20,000 music lovers as they stroll around listening to around 50 of Australia’s best artists on 18 stages in the venues and public spaces of the town.
The Winter Blues Festival is delighted to announce its 2022 lineup, all performing for free over the weekend.
At the top of the bill are festival faves 19-Twenty, acoustic guitar kingpin Lloyd Spiegel with his new trio, The Lachy Doley Group – a showcase for organist-to-the-stars Lachy Doley, and Southern rock orchestra FOOLS – who have been packing Melbourne venues of late. They’ll be joined by the cream of the crop of award-winning Australian blues talent – including Geoff Achison & The Souldiggers, Sweet Felicia & The Honeytones, Shane Pacey Trio, Collard Greens and Gravy, The McNaMarr Project, and many more.
