Our Favourite Cosmic Country Weekender Returns!

Australia's very own Cosmic Country Weekender, Dashville Skyline, like many a good festival, has certainly weathered the storm of cancellations over the last two years. So it comes with great joy for the Dashville mob to announce the complete updated program for its rescheduled return on 25-27 February 2022.


Typically held over the October Long Weekend, the line-up for the 7th annual 'cosmic country weekender' initially intended for October 2021 was an absolute beauty, featuring over 40 Australian acts, including heavyweights such as The Black Sorrows, William Crighton, Liz Stringer, The Murlocs, Jeff Lang and Tracy McNeil.

Fortunately, the line-up has remained reasonably intact for the rescheduled February event, alongside some exciting bonus additions, including surprise homecoming guest Nashville based Australian Jordi Lane.

Other acts to join the reschedule include Lyle Dennis, T.Wilds, The Tall Stories and Piper Butcher. In addition, acts who couldn't make the rescheduled event for February, including Claire Anne Taylor, Fools, Caitlin Hartnett and the Pony Boys, The Long Johns, Doc Halibut, Sue Ray and Albi & the Wolves, you will see pop up on other Dashville events in the near future, including Dashville Skyline when it returns to its usual timeline of October in 2022.

The vibe is unanimous, and the music industry has never been more ready to take the stage and converge upon the allowed bushland of Dashville in the Hunter Valley for a much-needed return to the scene of this well respected country-inspired festival.

Rolling out over three days, the boutique camping festival is essentially a celebration of 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.

Taking its name from a 1968 Bob Dylan record, Dashville Skyline is a weekend escape full of timeless live music, a myriad of artistic collaborations, loads of family activities, markets, workshops, antique car and instrument displays, great Americana inspired food and laid-back, oldschool country-inspired camping amongst the pristine bushland of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
