SKY BALL First Release_Event Image_v3CMP

Thursday 1st - Monday 5th October, 2020 (new date)

A sincere thank you to our extended Dashville family for rolling with the change in proceedings here.

All challenges aside, yes indeed it was hard to say goodbye to the festival we had prepared for you on April 24-26.

But we're ready to bounce back, with a master plan to create more awesomeness, doing something we never thought would be happening and may never happen again.

We consider The Sky Ball the ultimate marriage of 2020.

The joining of two like-minded souls, our greatest festival adventures side by side, The Gum Ball and Dashville Skyline, for an exceptional 5 day journey. 


Please note, if you have already purchased tickets to The Gum Ball, you're tickets will be transferred to this new rescheduled event. Thank you for your patience as we roll out all transfers.

The one off 'Sky Ball' festival will be held in the same pristine location, 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 confident we have what you're after.
We strive to provide those pristine necessary 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!

"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 Gum Ball is where it all stems from. 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?' Magpie (Festival Curator)
