Australia's biggest New Year's festival is back again and we're beyond keen for a boogie.
We've been waiting impatiently for a line-up, and finally the Beyond the Valley team have delivered the goods. This year's program is jam-packed with international and local artists who'll soundtrack a NYE to remember and we've got all the juicy deets so you can stop daydreaming and start planning. Here's everything you need to know about the festival.
When is Beyond the Valley?
Beyond the Valley (BTV) will take place once again at Barunah Plains (a 30 min drive from Geelong, 90 minutes from Melbourne) and will run from December 28 until January 1, 2024.
Who is on the line-up for Beyond the Valley?
Headlining this year is (drumroll, please)... Rüfüs Du Sol, the Grammy-winning Aussie dance music trio returning home to transport us to another dimension on the dancefloor. We can already see ourselves having a literal spiritual moment dancing to 'Innerbloom'.
Other big names on the line-up include Central Cee, Ferg, Flight Facilities and Peggy Gou ('Nanana' has been stuck in our heads since it came out) who will ring in the New Year on the Valley Stage, plus rapper Destroy Lonely and Aussie acts like DMA's, G Flip, Mall Grab and the Jungle Giants.
There are also loads of electronic artists on the list, like Boo Seeka, Cassian, Channel Tres, DJ Heartstring, Jayda G, KETTAMA, Logic1000, plus so many more.
It's looking like it's going to be an absolute ripper of a festival. Check out the full line-up here
What can you expect at Beyond the Valley?
BTV has announced they will raise the bar even further this year with architecturally designed stages, the return of the Ferris wheel and the podcast stage, an inflatable wedding chapel, a newly coined 'Better Beer' beach club, a revamped sanctuary and more.
In addition to the killer music line-up, the podcast stage will have celebs bringing their pods live and in the flesh, including Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay and Love Island fan favourites Anna and Matt.
In what will be a festival first, festival and camping tickets will be purchased separately, and there will be options to buy pre-pitched tents on top of the usual Lux, Premium, and General camping choices.
To showcase the festival's commitment to making a positive difference, $1 from every BTV ticket sold will be donated to Igniting Change, a small charity that sparks big change. The festival will also work with Children's Ground, a First Nations-led organisation. After offsetting 1208 tonnes of carbon last year, the festival will also work with Treecreds to offset emissions.
