They are the geniuses behind the much-loved Gumball and self-described 'cosmic country weekender' Skyline, and now the Dashville crew are adding three events to our 2020 calendar.
Dashville Nights will bring together three nights of "great music" in an intimate picnic style set-up under the trees and stars at the Hunter Valley property throughout the month of August.
After what organiser Matt "Magpie" Johnson says feels like an "eternity", the Lower Belford site will open the gates on August 1, 15 and 29.
Mr Johnson said Dashville Nights was their first event since the coronavirus pandemic lockdown, and the group are quietly excited to be back.
"We are looking pretty good but it's a case of watching how things turn out in Victoria. We will be working within the restrictions and everything is going to be done in a COVID-19 safe way," he said.
"We are very excited."
Dashville Nights is usually held on vineyard concert weekends, as part of the business's Hunter Tent Stay campground bed and breakfast service.
First up will be a special edition of Dashville Nights and feature two local bands - and no doubt a special guest or two.
Alt-country singer-songwriter Ben Leece & Left of The Dial and modern country Johnston City are set to take over the stage - and incidentally will both celebrate birthdays over the weekend.
The next event will include Magpie himself along with Palomino who will take over the stage on August 15 before Zombonimo and another act to be confirmed on August 29.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the Dashville community were hit hard and forced to cancel Gum Ball and Skyline for 2020.
Mr Johnson said it had been a tough time for the business but they had stepped up to the challenge to "diversify" in spite of the circumstances.
"We've had some great feedback with people supporting our efforts," he said. "These small events give us hope."
Dashville will also host the Sky Ball over the October long weekend.
