The 2017 bill is headlined by industry veterans Regurgitator and Tripod as well as rising stars Boo Seeka.
The Dashville team has continued its legacy of thoughtfully-chosen acts, both new and legendary, in a mix of genres.
The bumper first round line-up also includes revered Drones frontman Gareth Liddiard, Melbourne garage rockers The Peep Tempel, powerful songwriter Liz Stringer and her band, soulful folk singer Jack Carty, indie-pop band The Ocean Party, eight-piece brass-infused reggae rock group The Steele Syndicate, enduring blues rock artist Mick Hart (accompanied by drummer Simon Gibson), touring African a cappella group Africa Entsha and stirring old-world country songbird Freya Josephine Hollick.
This first round announcement forms just part of the 30-plus artist line-up for Gum Ball next year. The second round announcement will drop in late January 2017.
The Gum Ball is a BYO all age camping festival that also includes an array of gourmet food and markets, licensed bar precinct, late-night silent disco, a night-time kids crèche, various workshops and activities, morning yoga, pro skater demos and live artworks.
The Gum Ball is held 21-23 April, 2017.
