The Hunter Valley's most beloved boutique camping music festival, The Gum Ball returns on the last weekend of the Easter school holidays in 2021.

The Gum Ball is an intimate and family friendly celebration of music, arts and culture. Alongside an impressive line-up of Australian and (hopefully) international acts, plus the cream of the Hunter's rising stars. The BYO festival also features a tantalising mix of food, market stalls, kids activities and other wonders.

PLEASE NOTE: The festival generally sells out in advance. With the postponement of 2020, The Gum Ball festival in 2021 already has a large portion of tickets rolling over .

So if you don't have tickets for 2021, it's best not to delay jumping on board if you wish for your family to be part of this magical weekend!
