The Gum Ball 2021

The mighty music and arts festival that started it all. It's the optimum cultural option for a family getaway.

The Gum Ball was due to celebrate its 15th chapter in April 2020, but due to the pandemic, this festival has been postponed until April 2021.

The Gum Ball will make its triumphant return 16-18th April 2021. The last weekend of the school holidays.

Please make sure you have your 2021 tickets, as all 2020 tickets were cancelled and moved into credit vouchers for you to use at any Dashville event.
