The Bluebird Sings

An evening out at Dashville where we celebrate the power of music and those who embrace it, where we have a crack at raising the mood and contributing funds towards Support Act. A charity which supports people in the music industry dealing with crisis.

We welcome all songwriters compelled to perform a few songs in the relaxed intimate setting of the Tractor Shed.

Ben Salter's 'It Became a Thing' tour

The incredible singer-songwriter Ben Salter - of the likes of Giants of Science, The Gin Club and The Wilson Pickers - is leaving the nurturing otherworldly bosom of Tasmania and embarking on a national tour.

The impressive run of dates will culminate in a special performance at Dashville, which will feature a delicious dinner and a live Q&A with Ben Quinn.

Dashville Skyline 2019

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.

Honky Cat - an Elton John tribute

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.

PigSty In July

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 Gum Ball 2020

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 24th - 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.
