Excitement is reaching a fever pitch as Beyond The Valley has today (Oct. 9) dropped a bombshell by adding 10 sensational acts to its already killer lineup for 2023.

Get ready to groove to the beats of FERG (formerly known as A$AP FERG), Flight Facilities with a special Decade DJ Set, PARIS, Airwolf Paradise going b2b with Torren Foot, Tseba, C.FRIM, Sasha Fern, and Jennifer Loveless.

After much anticipation, they've also revealed this year’s countdown artist, with Peggy Gou confirmed to ring in the new year on the Valley Stage.

Bad news for Kelis fans, however, with the news that the singer will no longer be heading Down Under to perform at the festival as she’s now cancelled her world tour.

“As many of you will know, it’s been a tough couple of years, but I’ve been out there working hard on the road and at home on the farm, all whilst providing stability and nurturing my children,” Kelis said in a statement.

“I’m afraid to say it but I need to come off the road for a little while to regroup, to be the best mother, to be the best for myself and to thrive in the future. With that in mind, I’m having to cancel or postpone all live touring for the foreseeable future.”

“I was excited to be coming back to Australia and New Zealand and seeing you all again. I will be back; I’m making a new record and I’ll be back better than ever but for now, it’s a needed pause. Thanks for understanding and your support all these years.”

Performing on the 29th of December will be RÜFÜS DU SOL, Mall Grab, The Jungle Giants, Rebūke, Jayda G and more. On the 30th, you can expect performances by Central Cee, FERG, DMA’S, Ewan McVicar, Channel Tres, Romy, and many others.

If you’re hoping to camp at Beyond The Valley, there are a very limited amount of Pre-Pitched tent packages still available.

For those who would prefer to stay off-site, they can purchase festival-only tickets. Positioned just a short 40-minute drive away from the Surf Coast, encompassing Torquay, Anglesea, Jan Juc and more, and a mere 30-minute distance from Geelong, the Beyond The Valley site holds appeal for attendees keen on transforming the occasion into a vacation.

Since its inception in 2014, Beyond The Valley has boasted a star-studded history, graced by legendary acts such as Nelly Furtado, Dom Dolla, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Tyler The Creator, The Kooks, Bonobo, Little Dragon, Jamie XX, Chance The Rapper, Honey Dijon, Kaytranada, Stormzy, Charlotte De Witte, and many more.
