The Gum Ball is returning in 2020 for its 15th edition, featuring an unmissable lineup of music and arts in the beautiful Australian bushland.

If you’ve never been before, Dashville is a beautiful bushland property located at Lower Belford in the Hunter Valley which plays host to two of NSW’s most beloved boutique family-friendly festivals: The Gum Ball and Dashville Skyline.

As always, The Gum Ball promises three days brimming with activities including camping, markets, workshops, comedy, morning yoga, circus activities, a skate ramp, and of course, an unmissable bill of local and international music.

This year, Australian rock icons The Church will lead the lineup, who in 2020 will be celebrating their 40th year as a band. Alongside The Church will be rising virtuoso star Harts and his band, who will be paying homage to Jimi Hendrix in a set that is sure to transport you back to 1969.

Returning to The Gum Ball is an original headliner from the first-ever festival, the much-loved, multifaceted iOTA. Plus, Mia Dyson, Liz Stringer, and Jen Cloher’s project, Dyson Stringer Cloher, will also be returning to the festival following the release of their long-awaited debut record earlier this year.

On top of this you’ll see the likes of Canada’s own Frazey Ford, who will be making her first Dashville appearance with her soulful alt-country, the ever-charming Steve Smyth, the blues sounds of Cash Savage & The Last Drinks, indie rockers Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, RnB singer-songwriter Okenyo, Sydney psych legends Eagle Eye Jones, plus many more.

There will be even more artist announcements to come, as well as a line-up of comedy performers, pro skateboarders, plus food and market stalls.

The Gum Ball will run from 2pm Friday, April 24 to midday Sunday, April 26. A special Anzac dawn service will take place on Saturday 25th April.

Tickets are on sale now through Humanitix. All booking fees will go towards Nutrition for Aussie School Kids.
