Brand new Americana festival Dashville Skyline, brought together by the folks behind The Gum Ball, have announced the first round of artists for their debut event. Held in Lower Belford, NSW on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October, the festival has been tantalising us with hints over the last few weeks, and with this lineup the wait has paid off.
The first round of artists for this year’s Dashville Skyline include a bunch of Timber and Steel favourites – Wagons, Bahamas (CAN), All Our Exes Live in Texas, Green Mohair Suits, Melody Pool, Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes, The Lonesome Heroes (USA), Olympia, Bell St Delays, Papa Pilko & The Bin Rats, Perry Keyes, Ben Wright Smith and Elwood Myre.
“This is the first taste of a line up designed to reflect the sparse musical lineage between traditional roots music and modern Americana,” explains event organiser Matt Johnston. “We’ve already sold out of our early-bird ticket allocation without an artist announcement, which is fantastic. I think that people connect with the genre and are excited about the concept of this festival.”
