Dashville Skyline - Cosmic Country Weekender is our tribute to the golden era of roots music through the '60s and '70s.
Held over the Labour Day long weekend, it will return 4,5,6 October 2019. The festival features a myriad of laid back country activity, along with over 40 live performances one by one over three days, combining elements of Americana, psych-rock, alt-country, folk and bluegrass.
William Crighton is embarking on a small run of Dashville Skyline sideshows alongside The Family Band, featuring wife Julieanne, brother Luke and long-time drummer Reuben Alexander.
Special guests on the tour include the incredible Irish artist Amy Montgomery, Ahlia Williams, Paddy McHugh, Allara and William Barton, widely recognised as one of Australia's leading didgeridoo players and composers.
The legendary Sir Elton John is embarking on a global farewell tour and playing two giant sold-out shows at Hope Estate, Hunter Valley.
So in true Dashville style, we're going to pay homage in the best way we know how - bringing together our stellar musical family of rocket men and women for a bumper show of Elton John classics. The party will be led by our friend, the human jukebox that is Ngariki.
Taking a break in 2019, PigSty In July is the fast burner... The more sinister fiery sister to The Gum Ball... A mid winter blast to break the ice-shackles... A one day Op Shop Bop...full of great live music and comedy, and the best food and booze known to person...
The mighty music and arts festival that started it all. We're all still coming to terms with how amazing it was in 2019, an incredible 4 days was had. The festival will return for its 15th instalment in 2020, over the last weekend of the April school holidays (NSW), Thursday 23th - Sunday 26th April 2020.
It doesn't get much more idealistic than a weekend away at The Gum Ball. Jump through to check out some of the info and pics from the last one... it's the optimum cultural option for a family getaway.
