"THERE'S NO PLACE I'D RATHER BE."
The streets are abuzz with excitement today as mysterious posters for Beyond The Valley have appeared, featuring the intriguing phrase "THERE'S NO PLACE I'D RATHER BE" - a lyric from RÜFÜS DU SOL's track, No Place.
Punters are now wondering if this means the beloved trio will be headlining this year's Beyond The Valley festival following their performance at 2019’s event, and if the rumours hold true, attendees can expect one hell of a New Year's celebration at the four-day camping festival.
Adding to the intrigue, the posters also reveal a phone number, 1800-BTV-NY23, which eager fans have dialled to discover an answering machine message.
The message tantalisingly hints, "We're getting ready to share our 2023 lineup."
Considering the star-studded roster of the previous year, which included the likes of Dom Dolla, Nelly Furtado, Charlotte De Witte, Diplo and more, festival-goers are already bracing themselves for another stellar lineup.

Beyond The Valley had its most successful year yet for its 2022/23 edition, which saw 35,000 patrons treated to an epic NYE celebration held across 4 days.
Last year’s highlights included an appearance from global pop star Nelly Furtado, who graced the stage for the first time in over five years, just before Australia’s very own Dom Dolla rang in the New Year and brought Nelly out on stage, where they famously dropped their banger of a collaboration, Eat Your Man.
The festival began in 2014 and has hosted the likes of Tyler, The Creator, The Kooks, Joey Badass, Bonobo, Jamie XX, Chance The Rapper, SchoolboyQ, Honey Dijon, Kaytranada, Stormzy, Mura Masa & many more, with the festival selling out almost instantly every single year.
Over the past eight years, it’s quickly evolved into one of Australia's largest music and camping events, becoming a rite of passage New Year's tradition for many.
Notably, last year marked the festival's inaugural year at its new home at Barunah Plains, with the main stage perched at the foot of one of the world's largest amphitheatres.
The festival featured 3 architecturally designed stages, a wellness sanctuary, luxury camping options, a hidden club through a portaloo, a dedicated podcast stage, speed dating, Poof Doof pride patrol and more.
