The Gum Ball Drops Tasty 2017 Festival Lineup

The Gum Ball machine has just popped out the first drop of its 2017 lineup for you to sink your teeth into, and yep, it’s another sweet one.

Chew on this: Aus rock ledgehammers Regurgitator, comedy trio Tripod, Boo Seeka, Drones frontman Gareth Liddiard, Melbourne garage rockers The Peep Tempel and loads more round out the first lick of the 30-plus artist lineup for next year’s Gum Ball, with the second round announcement due to drop in late January 2017.

The 12th annual camping festival will go down in the New South Wales Hunter Valley from Friday, 21st to Sunday, 23rd April next year. And alongside the sweet-ass lineup, The Gum Ball will also be teeing up a stack of gourmet food and market stalls, kids crèche, yoga, skate demos, workshops, live art and a very popular late night silent disco, so get in amongst it.

The fest will make its delicious return to Dashville, a bushland venue tucked away in the heart of Belford, which also plays home to fests like Dashville Skyline, PigSty in July and, most recently, Thrashville.

Tickets to The Gum Ball 2017 are on sale now. Check out full lineup so far, and ticketing details, below.
