This festival isn’t only about country music. With a sky full of stars and songs overhead and another rabbit hole appearing at every turn, Dashville Skyline is a masterfully arranged musical extravaganza that meanders through a wide-open country landscape.

The family-friendly camping festival is a favorite among people who want more relaxed music, maybe with a hint of cool permeating their folk or country genre. The well-known festival offers an abundance of amazing live performances by carefully selected artists from Australia and beyond, together with several artistic partnerships, family-friendly events, and casual, vintage-style country fun.

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”.

Tickets for Dashville Skyline 2024 are on sale now at the Dashville Store.

The festival program extends from Thursday 3rd October through to Sunday night, October 6, 2024.
