Gum Ball


After 16 years of organic growth into the Hunter Valley's most beloved boutique camping music festival, The Gum Ball returns in 2020, ringing in a new decade of new musical memories.
As a thank you to the Dashville faithful, the "Dashvillians", we're offering early bird tickets at a discounted rate. You know the line-up will be killer, so jump in early and save some dough.
The Gum Ball is an intimate and family friendly celebration of music, arts and culture. Alongside an impressive line-up of Australian and international acts, plus the cream of the Hunter's rising stars, the BYO festival also features a tantalising mix of food, market stalls, kids activities and other wonders.

The Gum Ball has a reputation for inviting some of the country’s most popular acts to perform alongside their pick of the best emerging performers from around Australia and overseas.

A bit of a "proving ground" you might say, where legends like Hoodoo GurusPolish ClubMagic DirtTex PerkinsTumbleweedRed Gum, Sampa the Great and Custard play alongside artists on their way up, like The Preatures, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

The Gum Ball mixes musical genres and styles, from rock and soul, through to hip-hop, country and in between, over two stages, side by side, to create a flowing festival feast of music and dance, where you don't have to do much else other than reach into the esky for another tin.

PLEASE NOTE: The festival generally reaches capacity well before the event, so it's best not to delay jumping on board if you wish for your family to be part of this magical weekend full of art and music.
