SKYLINE ARTISTS COLLABORATE TO 'MAKE IT RAIN'

Dashville Skyline launches 40 track compilation album 'Make It Rain' with all proceeds going to support Aussie farmers in crisis.

Some small rains fell over parts of NSW this past weekend, some didn't.

In any case, it was a nice change, but unfortunately there needs to be a lot more. The drought situation in NSW has reached a crisis point. Australian farmers are trying to hold on. Already burdened by the major supermarkets, the weight of the worst drought we've seen in 50 years, has them now doing it tougher than ever, both on the land and in the home.

Thankfully there's a large community of individuals and organisations working hard to rally support and raise funds to help regional Australia survive through this and Dashville want to do their bit to be part of this community and show Australian farmers that we care.

When we took this concept to Dashville Skyline artists, there was no convincing required, with all artists offering up their support and stunning music to raise much needed funds.

As such what we have is, Make it Rain, a whopping 40-song, two-CD compilation  album full of Dashville Skyline performers, from world-renowned artists like The Waifs and C.W. Stoneking, to rising stars like Ben Leece, Grace Turner and Ruby Gilbert, this is a stunning catalogue of music, which will be sold with all profits going direct to farming families via the Country Womens Association of New South Wales.

PURCHASE THE ALBUM HERE

The album is mere $25 and 100% of all sales go direct to farming families. You have the option to pick up at the festival or we can post it out in the mail.

We wanted to ensure that 100% of the money raised from this fundraiser goes direct to those who need it most.

Country Womens Association (CWA) are providing grants of up to $3000 to drought affected families to help meet household expenses. Expenses can include grocery bills, vehicle maintenance, school, electricity, rates, telephone, dental and medical (gap payments or cost of travel to access treatment) etc. For expenses that are current and/or outstanding.

Dashville located in rural Lower Belford, has close ties to Hunter valley farmers, some of whom have supported or attended the events over the years. Along with the fundraising efforts of the compilation album, Dashville is also working with the CWA to provide complimentary festival passes to those farmers in the grips of the crisis.

Copies of Make it Rain can be pre-booked via Dashville's official online store and collected at the festival, or can be purchased and posted to punters who can't make the big party on September 28 to 30.

Unfolding over the Labour Day long weekend, the fourth instalment of Dashville Skyline will feature three full days of country inspired activity, combined with over 40 live performances, one by one over two stages.
