Phillip Island will be getting a new dance-based festival for NYE this year, Beyond the Valley

Even among dismal announcements for Australian festivals in recent weeks, there is still hope for the national live music scene with the announcement of Beyond the Valley, which will take place on Phillip Island over December 30th and 31st starting this year.

The line-up is expected to be announced sometime next month, but the video below should give some idea to the style of the event. The free-born Native American-style costumes and modern soundtrack by British electronic duo AlunaGeorge hints to the event targeting the young, typically Triple J-listener market overlooked in recent years by the failing Big Day Out.

Perhaps Beyond the Valley reflects an attempt to fill the huge hole left by BDO’s departure, for 2014 at least. We’ll have to wait until the lineup is announced before we decide where BtV stands in the Australian festival scene, but we’re very excited nonetheless.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Big Day Out tour dates have been leaked!

It’s that time of year again–great music, good vibes, awesome crowd and a whole lot of sun and sweat.

Yep, you guessed it, the BDO tour dates for 2014 have been announced to get you even more excited for the upcoming summer! Why so early you ask? Well according to the pedestrian.tv site, the dates were originally going to be announced on the 31st of this month, however, the promo poster (with all the tour dates) was uploaded online by ‘accident’! Whether if it’s true or not, we’re not complaining! Works in our favour–the more notice, the better!

But don’t get too excited! Only the dates have been announced, the venues on the other hand have yet to be revealed–well, except for QLD and Auckland, the lucky ducks! And Sydneysiders are also on a lucky streak considering they’ve been granted 2 days of BDO festivities! So without further adieu, here are the dates (and some of the venues) for BDO 2014 in courtesy of pedestrian.tv:

Friday January 17th – Western Springs, Auckland
Sunday January 19th – Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast
Friday January 24th – Venue TBC, Melbourne
Sunday January 26th – Venue TBC, Sydney
Monday January 27th – Venue TBC, Sydney
Friday January 31st – Venue TBC, Adelaide
Sunday February 2nd – Venue TBC, Perth

There you have it! Something to look forward to this summer! Let’s just hope there won’t be as many heat strokes as last year’s BDO sydney event on Australia Day!

So who would you like to see at the 2014 BDO lineup? Let us know below!
