after reading a little bit about the gentlemen of the road tour, i thought that the bluesfest might just be their cup of tea

apart from their main city gigs, they like playing 'out of main city' which is why they have picked dungog.

maybe byron might have the same appeal.

anyway i am really looking forward to the festival at dungog (especially as it is only 1/2 hour drive for me) Yeah - it doesn't often happen

also a great banjo sound.

Pre-sale on at the moment Marie. I got my tickets half an hour ago. Presale password is either stopover or dungog.

Does anyone going to Dungog know what time of day the music is likely to start. Everywhere I've looked says how far away it is from Sydney and Newcastle, but if you don't know what time to get there, that's less useful than it might be.

Thanks in advance

Google tells me that the festival is sold out and that the gates are open from 1 pm to midnight.

Was very impressed with Willy Mason, definitely the highlight for me.
Hopefully he will return with a full national tour next year once the new album is out.

Edward Sharpe and crew were thoroughly enjoyable too.

But I was disappointed with Mumford & Sons, thought they were trying too hard to be rock Gods or something.
The performance didn't come across as natural, more like they were self conscious and trying to be something more than a roots band.
Just my opinion of course but I wouldn't go see them again.

Wow. Couldn't disagree more. That was my third Mumford show and each one has got bigger and better. I was thinking on Thursday night how great they would be at Bluesfest.

Gentlemen of the Road Tour - Dungog - Fantastic

perfect day up in the Dungog hills. 11,000 crowd was a huge mix. (city slickers and bushies) Aust Stock Horse parade with Gentlemen of the Road Flags.

kicked off with Husky, then Willy Mason - Matt Corby - Sarah Blasko - Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Mumford & sons - Yacht Club DJS

everyone back on stage at the end of Mumford & Sons to sing Chain. what a sight.(and great sound too)

all acts were wonderful, with special mention to Edward Sharpe & co. what a musically gifted band, and great harmonies. unusual mix of voices that worked a treat.

also Mumford & sons - all the guys on stage (including the extras violin horns) just great musos. again all their vocals just strong and perfect.

I now know why bands with banjos have such great musicians. They have to be to keep up with the banjo player!!!!

think any of the performers i saw yesterday would be great at bluesfest but if i had to pick would go for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford & Sons

Didn't stay for Yacht Club DJs - wanted to arrive home alive, and it had been a long VERY hot day.

Enjoyed all the acts but second the comment that Willy Mason was impressive, and I also particularly enjoyed Edward Sharpe & Mumford.

Really enjoyed the combined effort on The Chain - even if I was 50 metres further back having left already, not expecting an encore.

All I saw would fit nicely at BF IMHO.
