After hosting their wildly popular debut back in January, the Bandwagon Riverboat is back for the second time running, and this time – it will be held over a span of two days!
The music festival’s highly-rated line-up will see the likes of acclaimed singer-songwriter Charlie Lim, filipino electronic singer-beatsmith BP Valenzuela, funk bassist-singer Bittymacbeth, cult emo-math rock outfit Forests, and Laneway Festival alumnus Intriguant performing at the Stewords riverboat on 10 and 11 June.
The festival’s eclectic line-up mix will see psychedelic groove-rock band Spacedays, chillwave-future bass artist CRWN (PH), satirical metal band Cockpit, Popspoken subculture collaborator Maurice Simon, Darker than Wax’s DJ RAH, Malaysia’s Basement Syndicate and house producer Oliver Osbourne completing the line-up.
The floating music festival, organised by music portal/gig finder Bandwagon, promises three decks of “live music, Coney Dogs & Root Beer Floats, and Carnival Activities.”
Clarence Chan, founder of Bandwagon, says: “The response after the first Bandwagon Riverboat was fantastic! There were many who couldn’t get tickets, so we knew we had to bring it back soon.”
“We wanted to improve the experience even further, so we’ve expanded the line-up to include some highly acclaimed regional artists. The food menu pays tribute to when A&W used to be on the Riverboat. All three decks have a new theme with a different set of activities for attendees to try out!”
The previous edition of the Bandwagon Riverboat saw 250 revellers having a rollicking good time on board the Stewords Riverboat, partying to the tunes of Stopgap, Cheating Sons, and Mediocre Haircut Crew. You can read our review here.
