Dashville drops first Sky Ball lineup announcement…and it’s a doozy!

In news that is sure to have gig pigs across the region rejoicing, the good folks over at Dashville have just dropped the first lineup announcement for their anticipated October Long Weekend fest Sky Ball.

The Skyball name is an enticing portmanteau of Dashville’s flagship fests The Gum Ball and Dashville Skyline – both of which were scuttled in 2020 due to this COVID nonsense – and the Skyball has a lineup that is definitely on par with its namesakes.

Just park your peepers on this line-up and tell us you’re not excited.

How good is that?

While tickets to this limited capacity shindig are rarer than hen’s teeth (with the majority already going to Gum Ball Credit Holders) you needn’t miss out on any of the fun because on Sunday 4 October the huge online concert Sky Ball TV will be beaming right into your lounge room.

The pay-to-view event will feature a wealth of artists from the Sky Ball lineup and the best part is that all proceeds from Sky Ball TV will go directly to the artists themselves, which is more important than ever in these uncertain times.

The Sky Ball is on from Friday 2 October to Sunday 4 October. The Sky Ball TV streamed event is on Sunday 4 October. Head here for more information and tickets.
