Joining them will be Australia’s most prominent and enduring musical comedy acts Tripod, known widely from their days on TV’s Skithouse.

Triple J Hottest 100 breakthrough and international rising stars Boo Seeka and Drones frontman Gareth Liddiard will keep the sound diverse, challenging and massive in the bush retreat.

Rounding out the bill will be the Peep Tempel, Liz Stringer, Jack Carty, the Ocean Party, the Steele Syndicate, Mick Hart, African acappella group Africa Entsha and Freya Josephine Hollick.

The Gum Ball will be held at Lower Belford in the Hunter Valley on Friday, April 21 to Sunday, April 23. More information and tickets at dashville.com.au
