Friday 24th - Sunday 26th April, 2020
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 15th edition of the festival come April 2020.
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!
Our first line-up announcement will be out soon.
Check out some videos from previous years!
Fancy a countdown...
