Dashville's Big Return Weekend

We're coming out swinging December 10 - 11 with some feel good Christmas fun for young and old with a classic Dashville Nights concert under the stars on Friday and the highly anticipated Dashville Christmas Party and portrait day on the Saturday.

By-pass the big centres and bring your mob out to the great open spaces of Dashville on Saturday 11th December 2021, for the return of the big 'Lower Belford silly season soiree', otherwise known as the Dashville Christmas Party.

A big Dashville Nights concert will run Friday night (see below event), with more live music across the Saturday, featuring a bunch of Dashville's finest mates who can't wait to get reacquainted and give you the ultimate reason to pack the camping set up and hang all weekend long.

Bookings are open now for Christmas family portraits, picnics, Car Boot Sale rego and Dashville Nights.


Embracing the slightly heavier edge of existence, comes a TWO-day punk, metal, rock infused jaunt, purposed to loosen your joints and calm your tendencies. After the success of the postponed 2020 instalment in February 2021, we (tried to) welcome Thrashville for a second time in 2021 on Saturday 6th November. However due to ongoing BS, we have decided to postpone to Plan B of Saturday 12th February 2022. We're not going down without a fight - so we're bringing you TWO serving on ONE weekend.


A Fresh Start

Please welcome  A Fresh Start New Years Concert Series running Friday 31st December and Saturday 1st January 2022.

 For those of you who were lucky enough to join us last New Years, you can expect some similarities, some extra inclusions and some small changes. All in all this event is designed to be super laid back, allowing everyone to relax, recharge and perhaps reinvent some parts of your being. Why there's even a bit of talk about a healthy game of New Years Day cricket…!


Dashville Skyline 2021 (Feb 2022)

Dashville Skyline - Cosmic Country Weekender is our tribute to the golden era of roots music through the '60s and '70s.

Skyline triumphantly returns February 25-27 2022 (this is the rescheduled date from October long weekend in 2021). The festival features a myriad of laid back country activity over three days, combining elements of Americana, psych-rock, alt-country, folk and bluegrass.

We made the hard decision to postpone Dashville Skyline in August of 2021, moving the festival from the October long weekend to 25-27 February. We thank everyone for their patience while we work through everything.

The Gum Ball 2022

The Gum Ball Music & Arts Festival, the one that started it all, is back to its original ANZAC long weekend in 2022 from Aprill 22 - 24.

Our beloved festival across two stages with workshops, markets, kids activities and lots more.

Early bird tickets are on sale now for those who don't want to miss out on. Whether you're an old Gum Ball fan or thinking of joining the community for the first time, all are welcome.

Pig Sty in July

The mighty return of Pig Sty in July is in 2022

We tried our hardest in 2021, but 2022 is the destined year for PigSty.

Indulge in all things deep, dark, warm and wintery. Feast on local winter harvests, slug on the finest of refreshments, roll around on all fours to some exceptional live music and ripen the soul with some 'big arse' communal bonfires.

Standard dress requirements is your best second hand clobber,  finest faux furs (or hand-me-down) so very much the most fashionable night of nights.

Please note, all 2020 ticket holders will be credited.
