The line-up for the Hunter’s newest festival – from the creators of the Gum Ball, Pigsty in July and Skyline – has just dropped.
The Lower Belford property known as Dashville has felt the feet of legendary Australian musicians over the past 12 years, from the Hoodoo Gurus, Brian Cadd, Shihad, Custard, You Am I and Ed Kuepper to modern acts like Dan Sultan, The Preatures, Kim Churchill, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Ash Grunwald.
But now things are taking a turn for the heavier with the newest festival on the calendar – something for the heavy-loving folk – Thrashville.
Headlining the inaugural event will be the legendary Australian punk band Cosmic Psychos.
Formed in 1977 by three farmers in regional Victoria, the Psychos continue to have an unsung impact on the international music scene. Kurt Cobain and Nirvana were big fans, along with many of their fellow Seattle grunge luminaries.
Sydney’s equally iconic Hard-Ons will also be performing at Thrashville.
The power trio will compliment a solid list of bands, both young and old, coming together in a celebration of punk, rock and metal music, skateboarding, graff art and more.
The full line-up:
COSMIC PSYCHOS + HARD-ONS + CLOWNS + MISCHLING + THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION + MUCHO SONAR + THE AUSTRALIAN BEEFWEEK SHOW + HOWNOWMER + JEN BUXTON & THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE FIVE + ZOMBONIMO + ANAMATA + GLITORIS + KILL DIRTY YOUTH plus more to be announced.
