IT'S THE YEAR OF THE ROOSTER!
The third annual Dashville Skyline, Australia’s very own Cosmic Country Weekender, has just announced a portion of artists heading to its hallowed bushland home in the Hunter Valley NSW this October Long Weekend.
Pitched as a celebration of alternative country music and culture in its varied forms, the three-day camping festival hosts over 30 live performances, mouth-watering American-inspired food and bevvies, boutique market stalls, an animal petting zoo and much, much more.
Dashville Skyline provides an amazing experience for music lovers and has earned quite the name over the last few years as the ultimate weekend escape, full of laid-back country music and family fun.
A festival celebrating the roots of Americana, psychedelia and alternative country music. From the golden era of the mid '60s through to today's modern artists, the songs, the culture, the legacy, the vibe.
It's about getting the best artists and songwriters together in one location, sharing this timeless music, kicking back and having a bit of fun over a lazy long weekend.
Pack your camping gear and come join us!
In 2017, organisers are particularly pleased to bring some amazing talent from all around the globe to the humble confines of Dashville at Lower Belford.
International artists include Mark Olson (ex-Jayhawks) & Ingunn Ringvold from US and Norway, Tim Easton from Nashville, Dan Tuffy’s new musical project Songs From Dan (an expat based in the Netherlands), Mel Parsons from NZ and The Roamin’ Jasmine from the colourful streets of New Orleans.
Australian artists announced today include Cash Savage and The Last Drinks, William Crighton, Immigrant Union, Claire Anne Taylor, Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes, Pony Face, Emma Russack and Roadhouses.
The festival’s name derives from that of Bob Dylan’s 1968 release Nashville Skyline, which lends an impression of the vibe of this festival. It’s a celebration of alternative country, its birth in America during the ‘60s-‘70s, the culture that surrounds the music and the evolution that continues to inspire modern day songwriters.
As such, one of the main spectacles of the festival is the immensely popular Sunset Super Round. Each year artists on the bill step on to the main stage, often as a collaboration, to pay homage to their favourite songs of the “golden era”.
If two nights is not enough, then consider staying for the Sunday Wind Down. Take this add-on and you'll get another evening of tunes on the porch, camping and conversation.
Tickets for Dashville Skyline 2017 are on sale now via the Dashville store.
The festival runs from Friday, September 29 to Sunday, October 1, 2017.
