This four-day festival celebrates all things music, art, food and wine

Dungog Festival returns for its third year this October with a promising set of acts joining the bill for 2016.

Situated deep in cattle-rearing country, Dungog will play host to food events including a long table communal dinner showcasing local produce and a Hunter Valley wine matching lunch hosted by distinguished chef Christine Manfield.

The short film program is to be screened at the historic James Theatre, the oldest purpose-built cinema in Australia, with a prize pool of $30,000 for the winning entrant. Eighties new wave band Pseudo Echo have been announced as the newest musical addition to the line-up, with more to be revealed in the lead up to the festival.

Short courses and other activities will be taking place over the duration of the festival: sausage, beer and bread making courses for the gastronomes and yoga and art classes for the self-improvement type.
