What's it all about?
Dashville Skyline - Cosmic Country Weekender is a super laid back, family friendly, music festival held at Belford in the Hunter Valley over three days (the Labour Day long weekend) October each year.
Escape to the Hunter Valley countryside and wallow in a laid back music festival full of quality country music in its varying forms from all around the world.
It's a tribute to the traditional art of songwriting by some of today's best songwriters.
It's a showcase of the roots of "alternative country music", from its beginnings in the '60s and '70s to its widespread influence on today's performing artists.
The 2020 festival will be the sixth instalment of this growing event.
You can come visit for the day, or camp onsite for 1, 2 or 3 days. Various entry options exist in an effort to make it achievable for all to experience a slice of Dashville magic. Stay tuned to our socials or join the mailing list for updates on the next festival.
An incredible seed has been planted with Dashville Skyline. Since its inception in 2015, the artists, the food, the audience, the collaborations and the friendships have engrained themselves in the Hunter's finest musical soil, Dashville, and built a remarkable weekend escape for those free enough to pack the camping gear and roll on up.
It matters little if you're a musical superstar or a musical muppet, what matters is that you're willing to sign up for an awesome weekend away in the bush, kicking back with friends and family, supporting quality live original music and chowing down on the best food and booze around.
Along with the music will come the culture surrounding it: the food, the beer, the cow-lickin', the markets, the cars/bikes and more. All pieces combined, this festival is super chilled and something incredibly special for the whole family to enjoy.
The Dashville team are on to it, so please stay tuned for tickets and get ready for a great weekend in the bush at Belford.
