Time to get hyped: Beyond The Valley has unveiled one of the finest New Years festival lineups of the year, featuring a stacked bill of premium international and local talent.
If there's one act to get really excited about, it's gotta be Tyler. The celebrated artist who'll probably go down as one of the most important rappers of the decade, was famously banned from entering Australia back in 2015 due to backlash against his lyrical content at the time, to the dismay of many local punters. Thankfully, Australian crowds will be able to bask in the presence of the Odd Future trailblazer once again as he returns to our shores later this year.
Beyond The Valley 2019 is also headlined by Sydney electro collective RÜFÜS DU SOL, who've managed to establish themselves as one of the country's best exports in a remarkable amount of time. Elsewhere, the lineup boasts grime overlord Skepta, forward thinking UK producer Floating Points, Australian treasure Matt Corby, Meg Mac, Claptone, DJ Seinfeld, Honey Dijon, Methyl Ethel, Green Velvet, Hayden James and The Veronicas, who've been recently riding on the nostalgia wave thanks to an internet revival of their beloved 2007 hit 'Untouched'.
Check out the lineup in its entirety below. The festival takes place at Lardner Park - about an hour and a half east of Melbourne in Victoria's Gippsland region - from December 28 into the new year. Tickets go on sale Tuesday August 13 via the festival website.
