PigSty in July returns in 2018 with the announcement that home-grown Aussie ska legends THE PORKERS, the act that played the first ever PigSty, will be back to show us why they are an institution on Australia's live circuit, having toured internationally and played major festivals like the Big Day Out, Livid, Vans Warped Tour and Homebake. With an energy custom-made for a party such as PigSty, The Porkers are 31 years young and ready to make this night one to remember.

Dashville is also super stoked to welcome back one of the country's best and loudest live acts, the incomparable FRONT END LOADER. With new record Neutral Evil under their belt, the 27-year-old band ain't about to slow down. Their heavy anthems have riffs you could carve with a steak knife.

There was more good music at 2017's Gum Ball festival than you could shake a stick at, but one band in particular brought the house down. A young eight-piece group whipped the crowd into a frenzy and had over 100 people queueing after the show to buy a signed CD. Returning from Brisbane is THE STEELE SYNDICATE. This stellar party band fuse rock, funk, soul and reggae into classic tunes that will have you dancing up a storm.

Then youve got the powerhouse of the Dashville Progress Society. Chances are we dont really need to explain or introduce this band. If you've been to a Dashville festival, odds would be you're aware of the DPS approach to entertainment. Anywhere between 10-25 people on stage performing some of the greatest songs known to man. The power and passion of this group of local musicians is very contagious and when they hit the stage, it sure does create the platform for a lot of fun..!

Then Jolene are stoked to be joingin us from the sunny fields of Northern NSW. This top notch bluegrass meets alt-country family band will make their Dashville debut at PigSty, and from all reports its not to be missed.

Kicking off the live music at 2pm will be the stunning Georgie Jones, along with her band. Georgie is a local soul singer from Newcastle who will be sure to get the loins of PigSty punters warmed up and ready to roll into the arvo.

___________  & COMEDY!

Heading up this year's list of comedians is none other than our pal AARON GOCS, who has fast become one of the country's most beloved comics and documenters of Australian culture. Gocsy was last at Dashville to MC the very first Thrashville festival and we're pumped to have him back for PigSty in July.

BEC CHARLWOOD has performed at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and The Sydney Comedy Store. She recently was hand selected by Rove McManus to feature at his live shows and also performed at Tahir's Christmas Showcase. Her effortless charm and wit will keep you laughing all night.
