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. Our 2021 edition has been postponed from its October home to the late February weekend 25 - 27 2022.
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 song writing 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 and then the 2021 festival were to be the sixth instalment of this growing event on the October long weekend. We have postponed the 2021 edition of Skyline to early 2022, destined to be the official sixth instalment. Although not a long weekend itself, we wholeheartedly give you permission to make it a long weekend with some leave.
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.
