Party & Bullshit 1y

Taking place just outside of Melbourne, Beyond The Valley celebrated its third year in spectacular and muddy fashion over the new year period.

Well on its way to becoming one of Australia’s biggest and best festivals, the multi-day soiree saw Victorians and travellers alike congregate at Lardner Park. Starting off with steaming hot weather, the summer vibes soon gave way to a huge storm which turned the festival into a messy affair, but only seemed to encourage punters to get sillier.

Highlights included Chance The Rapper pulling a massive crowd, only to be topped by Sticky Fingers who delivered a massive set just after the colossal NYE countdown. With their future uncertain and a hiatus after their current festival run, this might have been the last time that Australian audiences get to witness the Inner-West crew in action, and the sing-a-longs were ones to remember.

Other mass sing-a-longs ensued when Bag Raiders dropped their immortal dance classic ‘Shooting Stars’, while What So Not also destroyed the stage and had the whole crowd swaying in a crowd of mobile phone lights. Special guests included Triple J Unearthed winner Gretta ray with Japanese wallpaper on stage, plus Woodes joining Luke Million. See you next year:
