GUM BALL ANNOUNCES 2018 PLAYING TIMES, ENTERTAINERS AND MORE MUSIC!
There's only 17 sleeps until we catch up with you awesome bunch of people for The Gum Ball 2018. We're all but ready for your arrival, with the Dashville crew working away day and night to deliver you the best weekend the Hunter Valley has to offer.
Following the release of our stellar musical line-up, we are now pleased to reveal the full timetable and entertainment roster for this month’s event.
Returning from Friday, April 27 to Sunday, April 29, the 13th annual Gum Ball festival is loaded with incredible Australian and international bands. Friday night’s line-up will build to an epic crescendo, with UK superstars The Cribs, beloved soul-funk outfit The Bamboos and hip-hop rockers Butterfingers all making this evening at Dashville one to remember.
Saturday’s line-up is as mammoth as ever, with music running from 8am until midnight. The day’s musical roster includes troubadour Ben Salter, blues outfit Hat Fitz & Cara, indie rock legends Screamfeeder, rock crooner Dave Graney & The Coral Snakes, psych-rockers Rocket Science, Ed Kuepper and his all-star band The Aints (playing the early Saints classics) and rising hip hop artist REMI to bring Gum Ball 2018 to a close.
The announcement of the full timetable also sees the addition of some more musical talent. Americana songstress Ruby Gilbert, SoCal-inspired folk rocker Magpie Diaries and French-Canadian "Zappa meets Ween" rockers The Squirts.
The broader entertainment and children’s program is also announced today. At this year’s Gum Ball young music lovers will get to partake in free belly dancing, reptile show and puppet-making workshops, as well as hone their skills at the Circus Works tent alongside real-life circus performers. They’ll also get to meet Maitland’s favourite llama, Hamish, and be amazed at the spectacle of some of the country’s best street performers, including Mr Gorski, Duke Dreamer and Sara Twister.
The Gum Ball returns for the 13th time from Friday, April 27 to Sunday, April 29, 2018 at Dashville, a private property at Belford, Hunter Valley.
