Dubbo’s brand new music festival, Under Western Skies is a celebration of the music and art of the Central West in the idyllic surrounds of Dundullimal Homestead on Saturday March 16, 2019.

Nine bands will take the stage, accompanied by film screenings, activities for the kids, craft beer and cider, market stalls and local gourmet food vans.

Headline acts, Smith & Jones, will be on show in the early evening with their classic harmonies and soulful songs, whilst the beating rock and roll of Sydney’s Hatakaze will take the night out with a bang.

They are joined throughout the day by some of the finest regional original music, including the heartfelt tunes of Orange troubadour Darren Smith and Gulgong’s folk favourite Daphne Brooks.

The cathartic riffs of Mannequin, the 90’s infused melancholy of Sunset Pass, the beautifully woven electronic-pop melodies of Eraser and up-and-coming pop-rockers Turn on the Lights round out the lineup.

No festival is complete without an assortment of local fare and Under Western Skies is no exception. Craft beer legends Badlands Brewery are joined by Small Acres Cyder in delivering bespoke beverages, whilst gourmet food will be dished out by Alfie’s Woodfired Pizza and Trang Hue Vietnamese. Festival-goers’ coffee cravings will be met by Saddle Up To A Coffee, and the Dundullimal crew will be serving up traditional BBQ and cafe options.

A dedicated kids area will keep the young folks entertained, with an undercover sand-pit being shipped in and an assortment of activities on offer. Free tours of Dundullimal - the oldest sophisticated slab house in Australia - will be available throughout the afternoon.

For those who are artistically inclined, Fresh Arts will be launching their exhibition, Back to Nature, in the function centre featuring fifteen local artists who will be on hand to talk about their works. Local artist Jack Randell will be creating real-time, handcrafted calligraphy, short films will be on display in the Old Church Theatre, and a projected visual work will be featured on the stables in the evening.

Want more? One happy festival goer will be the lucky winner of a Sony MHCV41D High Power Home Audio System with Bluetooth supplied by the kind folks at JB Hifi Home Dubbo, valued at $599! The winner will be drawn on the day. Please note: only tickets purchased via 123Tix prior to the day of the event (Saturday 16 May) will be entered into the draw.

It all amounts to an incredible afternoon and evening under Dubbo’s enormous and beautiful western skies.
