Dashville Skyline is Australia's very own Cosmic Country Weekender.
A festival celebrating the roots of Americana, psychedelia and alternative country music. From the golden era of the mid 60's 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!
Friday 30th September through to Sunday 2nd October 2016.
(October Long Weekend NSW)
Quick run down...
Dashville Skyline is a throwback feast. A celebration of the golden era of ‘Americana’ music from the mid 60’s and 70’s and today’s nostalgic culture that surrounds it. Artists and music lovers come together in a celebration of the music and great songs that spawned from this influential period and the culture surrounding it, that has evolved and inspired so many.
Along with the musical soundtrack, expect the best American cuisine, cars and culture alongside the relaxed family atmosphere and onsite bush camping that Dashville has become popular for.
Last year the festival made its debut out at Dashville on a record 40*c day. A lot of amazing things happened. No more so than the birth of an amazing festival and legacy. This year a couple of changes are anticipated in an effort to go one better.
Organisers have shifted this year's Skyline to a Friday and Saturday, with a Sunday wind-down similar to that enjoyed at Dashville’s ever-popular Gum Ball music and arts festival.
This year’s event will also see the return of the immensely popular Sunset Super Round, which proved to be the “jewel in Skyline's crown”. Last year, artists collaborated on the main stage to pay homage to their favourite songwriters. The audience was treated to Holy Holy's full-blooded cover of Neil Young's 'Southern Man', Melody Pool and Ruby Boots' duet on Lucinda Williams' classic 'Fruits of My Labor' and William Crighton’s dark take on Neil Diamond’s ‘Solitary Man’.
