On Saturday, 17 February 2024, a handful of Australia’s favourite artists will perform at The Rubens’ festival, ValleyWays, at the Onslow Oval in Camden, NSW.

Starring headliners Grinspoon, the festival has also booked Aussie festival circuit favourites Ball Park Music, The Rubens, Ruby Fields, Coterie, Srirachi, and a local competition winner to take the last place on the line-up.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale on Wednesday, 25 October, at 10 am AEDT, while the general sale begins on Thursday, 26 October, also at 10 am. You can sign up for early-release tickets here.

ValleyWays is the hometown festival founded by The Rubens that commemorated their tenth anniversary. The festival began in 2022, and with a massive line-up next year, the event will likely sell out quickly.

Last year’s event hosted a bunch of Aus faves, including Middle Kids, Skegss, Slowly Slowly, Stevan, Blessed, Grace Amos, Hollie Cal, Becca Hatch and The Dardie Shades, as well as the winner of last year’s triple j Unearthed competition.

“Our community has been big supporters of the band over the last ten years, and this is our way of giving back,” The Rubens explained in a press release. “ValleyWays will bring the best music to our own backyard, and we hope to do this for many years to come!”

On the new single Good Mood, the band added, “Sometimes things fall down and you feel more alive. Like having a cold beer on the balcony of a house that's on fire.” You can listen to the catchy new number below.

In addition to ValleyWays and Good Mood, The Rubens have announced a string of expansive tour dates, which you can find below.
