First Line-up Announced for Dashville Skyline 2017

Boutique, self-described "cosmic country" festival, Dashville Skyline, on Thursday afternoon shared the first line-up for this year's event, once more hosted in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales across the spring long weekend — Friday, September 29th to Sunday, October 1st.

This year the festival will be headlined by brooding alt-country blues singer-songwriter, Cash Savage (pictured) who — alongside her regular band, the Last Drinks — will be joined at the festival by fellow-Melbourners, psych-folk outfit Immigrant Union, Tassie soul singer, Claire Anne Taylor, as well as fellow locals Lachlan Bryan & the Wildes, Emma Russack, Pony Face, William Crighton and Roadhouses.

The international side of the ledger is headed up by Americana icon Mark Olson who will perform with long-time collaborator, Norwegian singer-songwriter Ingunn Ringvold. In addition, the first announce includes Nashville's Tim Easton, New Zealand-based singer-songwriter Mel Parsons, Netherlands-based ex-pat Dan Tuff's new musical project, Songs From Dan, and New Orleans' The Roamin Jasmine.

Organisers have also promised plenty more artists to be added to the line-up in the coming months.

Tickets for the three-day camping event are available now via the festival website.
