Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th April, 2019

The Gum Ball is where it all started for us here at Dashville. If mum and dad never said yes to letting us host a festival in the front yard back in 2004... who knows what we'd be doing now.

"I have to say, it was one of the most fun, if not THE most fun Coral Snakes gigs we’ve done. The crowd were ace and talk about ready to rock, they were dancing before we started!" - Claire Moore (Dave Graney  & The Coral Snakes)

"Superb festival, brilliant festival." - Turin Brakes (UK)

 "Definitely a stand out vibe in my books." - Dave McCormack (Custard)

"I took a deep breath and closed my eyes trying to imprint the moment in my mind so that I would never forget it.” - Lindi Ortega (US)

"We've toured the world extensively and the feeling from all members was that Gum Ball is one of the finest festivals, from both the artists and as fans point of view, that we have been involved in." - The Creepshow (US)

"Thanks for having us - what an amazing festival!" - Screamfeeder

"I really loved being out under the stars, hanging around bon fires re-connecting with my peers again and everyone was just so relaxed." - Ngaiire

The festival is located in secluded bush at Belford, in the middle of the Hunter Valley, NSW.
If you like your festivals easy, comfortable, inspiring and cost effective, then we're pretty confident we've got your best option when we launch the 14th edition of the festival come April 2019.
We reckon it's one of those pristine kinds of times where you can escape to a bushland oasis, connect with like-minded people, great music and essential art. Soak up a bit of fresh air, kick back, relax and re-jig. We do our best to have something for everyone, with a focus on providing the ultimate all-age adventure. So for those new to the concept, expect a discovery!
We've just announced 40 or so handpicked artists in all different genres, from all over Australia and other parts of the world, to see the full line up go here
Playing times are now out and there's no doubt, the 2019 event is building to be one of our best yet, so grab your tickets before they all go and stay tuned for more news as we inch closer to this laid back beast of a weekend!
