Pig Sty in July

The mighty return of Pig Sty in July is now Saturday 27th November 2021.

Indulge in all things deep, dark, warm and wintery. Feast on local winter harvests, slug on the finest of refreshments, roll around on all fours to some exceptional live music and ripen the soul with some 'big arse' communal bonfires.

Standard dress requirements is your best second hand clobber,  finest faux furs (or hand-me-down) so very much the most fashionable night of nights.

Please note PigSty has been rescheduled from July 3 to July 31 to August 28 to November 27 due to COVID-19.

Dashville Christmas Party

Our community Christmas party returns for the second year on December 11th 2021.

By-pass the big centres and bring your mob out to the great open spaces of Dashville on Saturday 11th December 2021, for the return of the big 'Lower Belford silly season soiree', otherwise known as the Dashville Community Christmas Party.

We'll open up bookings closer to December, so you can pre-book your Christmas portrait package and picnic hamper!

Keep a peep on socials.

Thrashville 

Embracing the slightly heavier edge of existence, comes a one-day punk, metal, rock infused jaunt, purposed to loosen your joints and calm your tendencies. After the success of the postponed 2020 instalment in February 2021, we (tried to) welcome Thrashville for a second time in 2021 on Saturday 6th November. However due to ongoing BS, we have decided to postpone to Plan B of Saturday 12th February 2022. We're not going down without a fight!

 

Dashville Skyline 2021

Dashville Skyline - Cosmic Country Weekender is our tribute to the golden era of roots music through the '60s and '70s.

Skyline triumphantly returns February 25-27 2022 (this is the rescheduled date from October long weekend in 2021). The festival features a myriad of laid back country activity over three days, combining elements of Americana, psych-rock, alt-country, folk and bluegrass.

We made the hard decision to postpone Dashville Skyline in August of 2021, moving the festival from the October long weekend to 25-27 February. We thank everyone for their patience while we work through everything.

Dashville Nights

Dashville Nights is a 'smaller' concert model held at the iconic bushland camping venue, a style of show that has been running intermittently over the last few years, more frequently during the second half 2020 within COVID-restrictions. The format of Dashville Nights is a welcome takeaway from last year, aimed at embracing an intimate personal laid-back approach to original live music, taking advantage of Dashville's space and atmosphere as a regional venue. Ticket on sale soon.
