 It's great investment and it's time to saddle up and secure your spot amongst all the incredible laid back action.

The Dashville Skyline vibe...

While our modern tastes are broad, the heart and soul of DASHVILLE SKYLINE is built on big ol' country and the greats of the '60s and '70s. Masters like Cash, Dylan, Guthrie, Young and Willie Nelson. Such is our love of this great music that we created a three-day music festival in celebration of its essence. Dashville Skyline, inspired by Bob Dylan's 1969 record of similar name, is for all our kindred spirits who revere the great songwriters. For those who love to venture into the past to discover lost songs, wayward souls and enthralling stories from a time that brought us to now. 

Taking in alt-country, Americana, bluegrass, folk and psychedelia, the annual event is a celebration of all that is quality country-rooted music. Bringing together artists both modern and veteran, Australian and international (maybe), it is in every essence a world class gathering for lovers of country music.

Caravan Passes over 20ft: With a sharp increase in large caravans, this year we have a Caravan Pass for over 20ft rigs, same as previous Gum Balls. This tracks space, keeps space fair and allows ushers to point you away from small swags/ tents and boggy areas best avoided in heavy rigs.
