Australia’s very own Cosmic Country Weekender, Dashville Skyline has announced more artists
ahead of its hopeful return this October. Rolling out over the Labour Day long weekend, the three-
day camping festival celebrates classic songwriting and the great folk and country artists from the
60s and 70s that continue to inspire modern generations of music purists and enthusiasts alike.
Dashville announced its first artist drop earlier in May, which included The Black Sorrows, William
Crighton, Liz Stringer, Jeff Lang, Slim Dusty’s Travellin’ Country Band, Caitlyn Harnett and The Pony
Boys, Icecream Hands, Albi and The Wolves, Tracy McNeil and The GoodLife, Fools and Harmony
Byrne. Feen Wilson, Dan Brodie, Melody Moko, CJ Stranger, Ben Mastwyk and His Millions, Cool
Sounds, Family Jordan, Andy Abra and The Big River Band, Kid Hank, Katie Brianna, Then Jolene
and Marvellous Hearts were also announced.
Now, to complete the already impressive line-up is The Murlocs, Frank Yamma, Lachlan Bryan and
The Wildes, Claire Anne Taylor, Eagle and The Wolf, Georgia State Line, Ben Leece and Left of the
Dial, Sue Ray, Jeb Cardwell and The Dream Deal, Amends, The Long Johns, Jesse Redwing, The
Redlands, Michael Carpenter and the Banks Brothers, Huckleberry and the Conadilly St. Band, Doc
Halibut and Katie Bates.
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
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”.
The festival also boasts a myriad of artistic collaborations, loads of family activities, markets,
workshops, antique car and instrument displays, great Americana inspired food and laid-back old-
school country-inspired camping amongst the pristine bushland of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
The festival runs Friday, October 1, Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3, 2021.
