BRIAN NANKERVIS - FESTIVAL MC
Brian's BACK! We're thrilled to announce that the wonderful Brian Nankervis will be joining us once again in 2017 as Festival MC. As co-creator of SBS TV's RocKwiz, Brian is one of the most respected people in the Australian music industry, and we're so excited we managed to tempt him back to Riverboats next year.
For the last ten years, Brian has been writing, producing and co-hosting (alongside Julia Zemiro) the AFI Award-winning SBS music trivia series, RocKwiz. The team recently wrapped up series thirteen of the show.
In 2013, Brian narrated and acted in Vandemonian Lags a theatrical presentation written by Mick Thomas and produced by the MONA Art Gallery.
In 2012, Brian hosted a new series for the Working Dog team on Channel Seven, Pictures Of You.
In 2011 Brian directed Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be, a narrative concert based on the life of Bon Scott at the Athenaeum Theatre and co-wrote and hosted the ‘Queensland Country Comfort Hour’, five one hour radio shows for the Queensland Music festival and ABC radio in Queensland.
