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.
The deep house dubbed Disclosure duo have announced side shows to their headline spots in Sydney and Melbourne on the Listen Out bill. Disclosure brings a fresh approach to an amalgam of voguish club styles and if you haven’t had a listen, check the vid below because they defiantly pack a punch worth you consideration!
