Considered the more sinister little sister to the famed Gum Ball Music Festival, the fiery winter warmer, PigSty in July returns Saturday 31st July 2021 (rescheduled date).
After three years in the wilderness (...can you believe?) the crew at Dashville are ready to deliver some more of those essential wintery good times we’ve been missing of late.

The age old tradition of gathering with friends and family on one of the longest and darkest nights of the year is what it's about with PigSty in July.

So come and join us to celebrate all things warm, wintery and decadent. The over-18 event is a feast of quality up-beat live music, good beer, fine wines, naughty cocktails and mouth-watering food in the stunning seclusion of Lower Belford’s acclaimed venue, Dashville.

So, gents, dust off your suit, and ladies, slip into your finest dress – all second-hand, of course..

The fully licenced event (no BYO food/alcohol) runs from midday to 10pm, with return coaches available into Maitland Train Station.


Please welcome,
Melbourne’s prestigious funk cats JAZZPARTY, Sydney heavy rockers FRONT END LOADER, your new favourite festival band VAUDEVILLE SMASH, Hunter psychobilly gurus CASINO RUMBLERS, colonial punk lords THE BOTTLERS, Newcastle heavy rockers BLOODY HELL, the one and only BITCHCRAFT, indie rockers JET CITY SPORTS CLUB, dad’s favourite PUNK ROCK HILL BILLY, Newcastle funk cats WELL? and Maitland pop rockers AUTUMN HEARTS.

It wouldn't be a Dashville shindig without BEN QUINN setting a tongue in cheek mood as Master of Ceremonies.

NAT'S WHAT I RECKON joins as special guest host to cook up a f**kn' good night of bushland frivolity.
