In what is sadly becoming all too common news, the anticipated Dashville Skyline festival has been postponed.
Scheduled to run over the October long weekend, the popular Cosmic Country Weekender will now run, alls things being equal of course, from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 February 2022.
Taking to social media this week to make the announcement, organisers said that while the news was ‘a tough sandwich to chew on,’ many artists slated to perform in October have also put their hand up for the February iteration.
“No doubt we all saw this coming. It’s been a tough few weeks watching the evolving COVID situation in NSW. It was never looking good for our Cosmic Country Weekender, though we held off as long as we could in order to ensure we made the right, most informed decision. the post read.
“It’s certainly a tough sandwich to chew on…However, all is not lost! We’ve had a pretty positive response from all the bands on the bands on the bill, and it’s looking good for the vast majority of this epic lineup to be able to transition across to February for when there is suggested to be some greener pastures, hopefully growing free-range frolics, boogie time, hugs and laughter.”
“All ticket holders will receive correspondence via email and we’ll continue to keep everyone in the loop as we work towards the new date. If you can’t make the new date, you simply request a credit transfer at any point in the lead-up.”
And with a lineup that was to include the likes of The Black Sorrows, Ice Cream Hands, William Crighton, Liz Stringer, Jeff Lang, Tracy McNeill & The Good Life, this is one fest worth waiting a little longer for.
And aside from the formidable lineup of talent, the weekend escape is also chock-a-block full of family activities, markets, workshops, antique car and instrument displays, great Americana inspired food and laid-back old-school country-inspired camping amongst the pristine bushland of the beautiful Hunter Valley.
