Australia’s very own Cosmic Country Weekender, Dashville Skyline returns in September with a massive line up!
Basking in the glorious afterglow of the rescheduled 2021 festival held earlier this year, Australia’s very own Cosmic Country Weekender, Dashville Skyline, is now rolling full steam into the 2022 chapter, held over the October Long weekend, on the hallowed ‘island in the stream’, Dashville, in Wonnarua Country, Hunter Valley, NSW.

Celebrating the golden era of ‘Americana’ music from the mid '60s and '70s and today’s nostalgic culture that surrounds, Dashville Skyline is an ultra-chilled countrified camping festival that will host over 40 live performances, mouth-watering American-inspired food and bevvies, boutique vintage market stalls, an animal petting zoo, a guitar-and-car show and more.
The family friendly camping festival is a favourite for those who like a bit of cool oozed over their country, chock a block full of amazing live shows from hand-picked artists from around Australia and the world, with a myriad of artistic collaborations, family activities and laid-back old-school country-inspired fun.

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”.
