A celebration of alternative country music
and the surrounding roots culture in its
varied forms, the festival gives music lovers
the option to purchase single day tickets,
or full event three-day passes. The ultra-
chilled countrified camping festival will host
over 40 live performances, mouth-watering
American-inspired food and bevvies,
boutique market stalls, an animal petting
zoo and much, much more.
Held at the same location as The Gum Ball,
Dashville Skyline is a popular alternative
to its predecessor, providing an amazing
experience for alt-country music lovers and
those who like to partake in an ultimate
weekend escape, full of laid-back music and
The festival’s name derives from that of
Bob Dylan’s 1968 release Nashville Skyline,
which lends an impression of the vibe of
this festival. It’s a celebration of alternative
country, its birth in America during the
‘60s-‘70s, the culture that surrounds the
music and the evolution that continues to
inspire modern-day songwriters.
One of the main spectacles of the festival
is the immensely popular Sunset Super
Round. On Saturday at nightfall, artists on
the bill merge around the main stage in
spontaneous collaboration, to pay homage
to their favourite songs of the “golden era”.
Tickets for Dashville Skyline 2019 are on sale
now at the Dashville Store: dashville.com.
The fifth instalment of Dashville Skyline
returns to Dashville from Friday, October 4
to Sunday, October 6 2019 (NSW’s Labour
Day Long weekend).
