Returning in style after a year off, the popular Hunter Valley camping festival has announced the first round of acts for its highly anticipated return toDashville on 22-24 April 2016.
With what organisers are calling a huge achievement for the long running boutique festival, Australian rock’ n ‘roll royalty, You Am I lead an impressive list of diverse acts coming along to play in 2016.

Knockout soul rock powerhouse Dan Sultan will also be there with his band, along with international guitar virtuoso Jeff Lang, Melbourne’s ‘voice of an angel’ SuzannahEspie and Sydney Hip Hop super star Citizen Kay.

Other acts amongst the eclectic list of 13 gearing up to perform at the laidback weekend event include deep-funk instrumental act The Cactus Channel, arguably Australia’s finest songwriter Dan Brodie, 9-piece all-brass groove masters Bullhorn, Van Walker’s new supergroup The HeartBrokers, folktronicainnovator Caitlin Park, live hip hop 7 piece Astro Travellers and dynamic soul grit duo Polish Club.

Diverse live music and art has always been a trademark for The Gum Ball and with this first announcement for 2016, it’s clear that the family friendly BYO festival is sticking with the formula.

Never been to a Gumball before? You don’t know what you’re missing. But you can watch a retrospective of the 2014 event and 10th anniversary that the festival has just produced.
