However First, Examine Out Some Extra of My Aussie/Pageant Content material!

Past the Valley Location/Venue

The Past the Valley Pageant location is Larder Park in Victoria – about  an hour and a half east of Melbourne, a bit southwest of Warragul. The park is a beautiful inexperienced and hilly space, located round/above a person made lake.

There are fairly a couple of totally different tenting areas on just about all sides of the venue, and every has a sure colour of identify assigned to them to make them simpler to find on the map – extra on that later!

The Past the Valley venue was extraordinarily manageable, with simply two foremost levels with headliners enjoying, and two smaller levels doing their very own factor.

Major Stage

The primary stage had extra of the mainstream/well-known/stay acts enjoying in an open-air setting. This stage was simply above the lake, giving it an superior view from onlookers going up a gradual hill.

The stage was adorned with reflective gold plates, giving it a very picturesque look towards the inexperienced hilly backdrop. The sound system right here was unbelievable, and you may hear the music from all areas across the stage and from supplemental audio system on the again.

Principal Stage

BeyondtheValleyFestival2018-161
Dance Tent

The Dance Tent was just some minutes away from the Major Stage, simply up and over a small incline. The Dance Tent jogged my memory a whole lot of buildings I’ve seen at Coachella, Growth, and Lightning in a Bottle made by the Do Lab – it was extraordinarily colourful, with totally different panels of cloth hanging over and beside a principal dancing space. There was an enormous mild panel throughout the entrance displaying superb mild exhibits, with the dj on prime of it. The entire space was unfold with sand, which was good as a result of it felt such as you have been on the seashore but in addition fairly unusual to get caught in massive piles later at night time 😛

Jim Beam On Tour

The Jim Beam stage was a bit hidden – you had to enter by means of a sea container on one other aspect of the venue close to the meals vans. As soon as you bought in, nevertheless, it was superior. Some headliners additionally performed at this stage, and it had its personal full lineup in addition to the opposite two essential levels. I heard each sort of various music coming from this stage, from 80’s hits all the best way to tech home. Until you knew the artists you’d in all probability by no means know what you have been going to get, however it was all the time an excellent time and the Jim Beam cocktails flowed like wine. I spent the final hour or so of night time one right here, dancing to 80’s bangers!

Dr. Dan’s Electrical Psychedelic Pussycat Swinger Membership

Oh sure, you learn that one proper. This was truly one in every of my favourite little venues of the entire pageant – situated truly technically within the tenting space proper outdoors the primary gate. This was just like the little aspect stage that you simply get pulled into due to a unclean bassline and find yourself dancing away there for Four hours and don’t even understand how a lot time has handed (that’s occurred to everybody else a minimum of as soon as, proper? RIGHT?!). Ha, however truthfully, it was a whole lot of enjoyable and the place the smaller dj’s simply principally performed regardless of the hell they needed. It was often funky housey bassy tracks – a lot of enjoyable.

Additionally they held a Poof Doof – one of the crucial enjoyable occasions of the weekend – at this stage. Poof Doof is an superior and ostentatious homosexual bar that additionally brings its occasions to totally different locations round Melbourne. The enclosed stage was utterly full for this occasion, and there have been drag queens strutting their stuff on the poles surrounding the gang, up within the dj sales space, and all over the place actually. Two superb drag queens performed a killer set as properly. It was inclusive, colourful, flamboyant, and enjoyable.

For the additional issues to do and elements of the venue, see under!

Past the Valley Crowd + Vibe

The gang at Past the Valley is principally what you’d anticipate of a mainstream/Triple J crowd. That is NOT a doof crowd – not even shut – though some doofers do come to Past the Valley due to the superior home + techno names it brings into the lineup. And by that, I imply it was not likely a acutely aware crowd. Individuals threw their garbage in all places, and it was the sort of crowd that might simply push via individuals to get by means of the levels with out saying excuse me. Like, how arduous is it to say excuse me?! This was the type of crowd that really believed that they might depart every little thing at their campsite as a result of the costly value of their ticket coated the price of cleanup. I truly heard a man say that and it made my blood boil, however that is the type of crowd you’d anticipate at a pageant that isn’t a burn, doof, or transformational pageant I suppose.

The being stated, it was nonetheless nice pageant vibes right here. You might have conversations and random hilarious moments with strangers; individuals smiled and have been open. I actually didn’t see anybody that couldn’t deal with themselves or partied too arduous to be trustworthy. At occasions it even appeared like the gang was fairly mellow. However all in all there was a fantastic vibe within the air, individuals have been all having enjoyable, and have been excited to ring within the new yr.

Environment/Decorations

Past the Valley didn’t have a serious concentrate on artwork and decor, nevertheless it was undoubtedly round. The levels in and of themselves have been colourful, fairly, and superbly accomplished. Not one of the pageant was carried out in a boring method – the sunshine exhibits have been superior, audio system have been on level, and the levels have been distinctive. There have been painted panels everywhere in the website, some with feathers or different colourful patterns. There was an enormous hammock construction in the midst of the venue as properly. There have been sandy seashore areas with seashore chairs close to the swimming pools, and all the things was legibly and colorfully labeled from the bogs and showers to the totally different areas.

Without having an enormous give attention to environment, BTV nonetheless did it properly and did all they wanted to do to make it superior.

Past the Valley is placed on each by Triple-J and Untitled Group, which symbolize each the mainstream Aussie music and a bit extra underground dj scene, respectively. The lineup mirrored that completely in having a unbelievable mixture of extra mainstream stay acts and a few incredible home + techno djs. There was a bit of little bit of every little thing at this pageant, and there was actually one thing for everybody.

The primary stage was graced by acts akin to Tash Sultana, The Kooks, Duke Dumont, Bonobo, Boo Seeka, Shopper Liason, Operating Contact, Vera Blue, Late Night time Tuff Man, Fisher, SAFIA, Bonobo, Joey Bada$$, REMI, and Pnau.

The group of the lineup was usually very profitable, give or take a couple of barely extra complicated placements (corresponding to placing Duke Dumont earlier than The Kooks on New Yr’s eve – appeared backwards to many people). There was a enjoyable dj enjoying throwback tunes throughout the primary stage changeover occasions, which the gang appeared to love as nicely.

The tenting areas from the doorway

Past the Valley Tenting

As I discussed above, Past the Valley Pageant tenting was principally on all sides of the venue. Tenting got here with every ticket, however you’d have to buy a automotive move. You have to arrive with buddies so as to get the identical tenting spot with them, because the tenting is specified by neat rows so as, with a lot of area for every space. There was an space to wait in your associates so you possibly can all drive in collectively and get a spot collectively. A lot of the tenting was automotive tenting, and there have been additionally a number of parking tons so you can stroll over to meet your mates if want be.

Basic Tenting

The overall tenting tons have been on just about all sides of the venue. There was a Black, Blue, Orange, Purple, Silver, Pink, and Inexperienced Camps, principally circled round the primary venue space. No camp can be greater than a few 10-15 (tops) minute stroll to get into the primary space – typically Three-5. It was small and properly manageable. It was a bit hilly however nothing too loopy.

Once more, all these common tenting areas have been automotive tenting areas with individuals gathered round a number of automobiles, tents, and EZ-up’s (do they name these one thing totally different in Australia?!).

Electrical Metropolis

Electrical Metropolis was a tenting space close to the Lux Camp which had entry to electrical energy. I feel that is the place anybody with an RV would go, or individuals who simply needed just a little additional consolation of having the ability to cost issues. Passes to this tenting space would wish to be bought as an additional package deal.

glamping beyond the valley festival

Luxe Camp AKA Lux Vegas

Lux Camp – Glamping

The Lux Camp was a reasonably large factor at Past the Valley Pageant. There have been dozens (a whole lot?) of two-person pre-erected luxe tents, situated proper subsequent to the lake and some minutes to one of many most important entrances. The Luxe Tents included beds/bedding, a mirror, electrical energy, towels, a particular pool/toilet/bathe, and a lock.

This was the essential Lux package deal, however in case you needed even MORE facilities (rug, door mat, queen mattress, throw, couch, cushions, and so on and so forth and so on) you possibly can do a couple of totally different improve packages for these tents. Costs obtained fairly excessive, however these are tremendous good and spacious in case you have the cash.

Employees/Media/Artist Visitor Camp

On the prime of the hill close to an enormous constructing was the employees and media camp – that is the place I used to be! It was a small sectioned off space which made it really feel very protected. This camp additionally acquired entry to the large constructing the place the artists have been hosted – solely a small nook of it, however that is the place the EXTREMELY good and often empty loos have been. You’ll be in luck in case you work, as a result of having an actual toilet to prepare in was one thing I’ve hardly skilled at a pageant.

beyond the valley festival swimming pools

No higher approach to begin the day than a lakeside pool dip! 

Tenting Facilities

Past the Valley Showers + Bogs

The tenting areas at BTV all had accessible bogs and showers. The bogs (until you have been in luxe camp) have been porta-potty sort models, which have been spead everywhere in the park and venue. The showers have been comparable small models just like the bogs, and have been unfold out over the entire venue at most corners and in addition FREE! The strains might get fairly lengthy within the morning however nothing too loopy. The Lux camp had their very own bogs and showers additionally.

Common Shops

There have been a number of common shops all through the venue, promoting something you may want for tenting. From air mattresses and sleeping luggage to tissues, purple bull, child wipes, drinks, and snacks, these actually had all of it for those who wanted to prime up your tenting inventory.

Swimming Swimming pools

One of many coolest issues about Past the Valley pageant is the swimming swimming pools. They’ve a number of large swimming pools subsequent to the lake, located on slightly (man-made) sandy seashore with seashore chairs and lifeguards. The swimming pools are proper subsequent to a common retailer and occasional store too, so they’re the right means to wake your self up within the morning earlier than preparing and seize something chances are you’ll want for the day.  Did they get an enormous mangy? I imply, sure and no. There was undoubtedly some sand and dirt however they didn’t get too dangerous. Should you use them to cool off earlier than an precise bathe, cool off, or simply cleanse your self a bit, they’re effective.

Past the Valley Pageant Facilities – Different Stuff to Do/Additional Actions

There was a lot else to do at Past the Valley Pageant, even after you cool off within the pool! Right here are some things that went on contained in the venue:

Sanctuary Space

The Sanctuary space was proper inside the primary entrance to the pageant, and had all the additional sorts of actions within the mindfulness/creativity sector. It actually was a sanctuary, with numerous chill areas with bean luggage and chairs for those who simply wanted to get away from all of it for a bit. There was somewhat schedule of workshops that went every day on in one of many tents, and a few issues out there always. Listed here are some issues that went on:

Portray

There was an enormous pile of small, sq., clean canvases, tons of paint, and a bunch of brushes that anybody might simply come up and use each time they happy. I walked in and was astonished to discover the completely free creation zone, and seemed over all of the superb/hilarious/lovely canvases. I then spent the subsequent half hour creating one among my very own whereas chatting with a couple of fellow newfound artists making an attempt their hand at portray.

Doof Stick Making

On the primary day that they had a number of home windows of Doof Stick Making at Past the Valley – how enjoyable! In case you don’t know, a ‘doof stick’ is what I name a ‘totem’ within the US; it’s principally something lengthy, skinny, and tall that may assist you to discover your group within the crowd. These are often humorous footage or phrases on the prime of a stick, typically with lights. They are often something!

Meditations, Sound Therapeutic, Sound Journey

That they had all types of mediations within the workshop space, lots of them incorporating sound or devices. I did one which used a sound bowl with a didjeridoo and bells. It was pretty and grounding, and lead by such an attractive couple. I’m positive they have been all totally different however equally good for somewhat enjoyable of the thoughts throughout a busy day.

Velocity Courting

Okay, I’m truly so unhappy I missed this! It might have been a lot enjoyable, particularly at a pageant. That they had velocity courting a number of of the times within the sanctuary space, and I might love to know if anybody discovered their pageant girlfriend/boyfriend.

Yoga

There was yoga every day at 9am, for the extra-keen early hen who didn’t go a bit too loopy the night time earlier than. However in saying that, the music ended at 3am most nights so you would nonetheless get a great few (pageant) hours in earlier than yoga for those who needed.

Tarot Playing cards, Therapeutic massage

One other aspect of the Sanctuary space had an area for different issues like tarot card studying, therapeutic massage, and extra. For these actions you’d have had to go in earlier and ebook your self a time. My good friend had her tarot playing cards learn, and she or he stated it was superb.

Market Stalls and Magnificence Providers

There have been TONS of market stalls at Past the Valley pageant. There was each type of pageant dress-up you possibly can think about, from sun shades to jewellery to clothes of each attainable type. There have been a number of well-known clothes manufacturers there, in addition to some smaller ones. There was even a charity tent promoting books for refugees! One factor that’s for positive is that you may discover principally something festival-related right here that you possibly can need, and it might be foolish not to have a wander by way of all of the choices.

So far as additional issues on the market stalls, there have been loads of hair and wonder tents as nicely.

There was a short lived tattoo tent with top quality tats (mine lasted ages), and nicely as telephone charging for anybody who wanted it.

The Inflatable Church

To me, this was one of many highlights of the pageant! It was SO a lot enjoyable, SO inappropriate, SO hilarious, and simply usually the funniest concept ever. Principally what it was, was an enormous inflatable church with a potty-mouthed vicar and an alien-faced DJ the place you might  marry somebody in unholy matrimony only for shits & giggles. That they had a whole tent filled with hilarious costumes and glitter, the place males have been inspired to put on clothes and ladies have been inspired to, properly, get bizarre additionally.

I didn’t know what was happening at first once I noticed a man holding up the practice of one other man’s gown prepared to stroll down the aisle. Intrigued, I went inside and have become part of the most effective wedding ceremony social gathering ever, with two glitter-faced couples getting married with a marriage speech peppered with outrageous strains, impolite jokes, and a lot laughter. I noticed a marriage happening between three women afterward the subsequent day – all of them had pretend rings, vows, and the entire shebang. So good.

Transportation/Inns/Parking

You have a couple of choices to get to Past the Valley Pageant:

Drive Your self.

I might say that most individuals drove themselves to the pageant, in that the tenting areas have been automotive tenting. That is pretty straightforward to do, and just one.5 hours from Melbourne and it’s good to have a automotive to lock issues in. Simply be aware that there are automotive searches (see under) and that there are alcohol and drug exams on the best way out too.

So far as parking goes, there have been a number of parking tons for these individuals who didn’t need to park within the campsite or missed the window to drive in with associates. I might advocate you simply drive in with your mates although, and make an superior pageant campsite collectively.

If you would like to take public transport to BTV, you will get your self to Drouin Station or Warragul Station and there are free shuttle busses to and from  the venue from there.

The Past the Valley Meals was freaking FANTASTIC. There have been SO many choices that it was virtually too many!! There have been meals stalls throughout the surface of the venue, on each side, they usually all had actually good choices. A number of the stuff that they had was:

Past the Valley Tickets + Worth

As with all pageant, the worth of Past the Valley tickets trusted at which level you got them and what number of days you need to go. BTV has Four day, Three day, 2 day, and 1 day (NYE) passes. I might say that most individuals both went Three-Four days or simply NYE.

Early hen begins cheaper, however simply earlier than it bought out (which is often does) you’d be wanting to pay about 430 for Four days, $390 for Three, $330 for two, and $180 for NYE. Four days is obvi the perfect all-around deal.

Additional Bills

On prime of your ticket, you’ll need to contemplate:

Luxe Tenting/Tenting Packages: $300-$500 per individual relying on degree of luxuriousness and the way many individuals within the tent! There matches 2-Four individuals per tent, and a few are nicer than others with couches and so forth. Electrical Metropolis is one other $200 per campsite for plugs and so forth. Common campers solely want to fear about shopping for a automotive move per automotive.

Transport: Return bus ticket prices $79, and it may cost the identical to cut up a rental automotive between Four individuals. In case you have a automotive, you get rid of that and simply pay fuel in fact.

Meals, drinks, and so on: Nevertheless a lot you often spend… plus some, let’s be trustworthy.

beyond the valley festival crowd

Past the Valley safety line to get in, and some joyful festival-goers!

Past the Valley Safety

Past the Valley was not a BYO occasion, so police have been looking automobiles for alcohol and properly, you recognize, some other problematic substances.

Stepping into the Campground

Past the Valley safety was pretty tight. There will probably be police and sniffer canine looking automobiles at random. I might say that the majority automobiles that went into the overall tenting entrance have been no less than searched. The automobiles I noticed earlier than NYE had every thing taken out and put again in, however nothing actually opened or messed with an excessive amount of (that I noticed). Somebody informed me that about each third automotive was searched, so I assume that’s a reasonably excessive probability. I additionally heard tales about alcohol being present in very well-concealed locations, so take with that what you’ll and watch out!

There wasn’t a search on the employees gate for me, and my buddies in Lux stated they weren’t searched very a lot in any respect. I feel the brunt of it goes onto the overall tenting entrance. I additionally heard rumors of police going by means of individuals’s tents to discover alcohol and different issues, which in fact is totally unlawful (if it’s not in plain sight) however can also be one thing to concentrate on.

Safety Stepping into the Venue

There’s an additional safety examine whenever you stroll from the tenting into the precise venue with the levels. These guards simply principally need to ensure you aren’t bringing any drinks or alcohol in (not that anybody might have any within the campgrounds…. proper?! :P). They made individuals throw away their cups and cans and perhaps glanced right into a bag or two however that’s all.

Safety Contained in the Venue

There have been cops and safety guards strolling across the venue right here and there, standing on the again edges of crowds and overseeing the overall debauchery. Typically there can be a gaggle of cops standing by the entrance of the levels, lingering round and watching individuals. I’m unsure what they have been doing or in the event that they have been doing a lot however they have been there, ha.

Past the Valley Loos

The loos at BTV have been common. Most have been the type of porta-potties that had their very own little built-in sink in every stall, with a foggy mirror. They have been fairly clear to start with, however went WAY downhill in the direction of the top and particularly on the final night time. The feminine bogs have been extraordinarily overcrowded on the final night time, to the purpose individuals have been utilizing the lads’s and squatting behind issues, and half of them have been overflowed. I’m unsure if this was an issue with upkeep, or too many individuals and never sufficient loos (in all probability the latter), however the final night time was very grim. They not often ran out of bathroom paper although which is, I suppose, a plus.

There have been precise bogs within the Lux space, close to the employees tenting, and in addition within the VIP space there have been some higher ones as nicely. I wouldn’t say you want to deliver your personal rest room paper however perhaps attempt to use the loos throughout the pageant from a essential act or go proper earlier than one ends.

Past the Valley Climate

All I’ve to say concerning the Past the Valley climate is: Melbourne. BTV is basic Melbourne climate aka unpredictable af and can in all probability run your complete gamut of climate. My yr it started by pouring with rain (moist grass, some mud, and all), then forecasted rain for the subsequent two days however hardly rained in any respect and ended up extraordinarily scorching to the sunburn degree however freezing at night time.

What I imply by that is: you by no means know. Deliver your umbrella, rain jacket, and ensure your tent is waterproof. Ensure you have one thing heat to bundle up in on the pageant at night time and once you sleep. But in addition, be ready to strip down to swim go well with standing within the daytime, to keep within the shade, and to have a dip within the swimming pools.

Past the Valley Trend

In that it is a little more mainstream than different festivals, Past the Valley has a extra boho/stylish/fashionable trend development than another festivals and doofs. That being stated, festivals are a spot the place anybody can gown any method they like, and other people all undoubtedly do that. You’ll nonetheless see your leotards, fishnets, wigs, and LOTS of glitter, however not EVERYONE goes as onerous fashion-wise as they might at, say, Rainbow Serpent. Something actually goes right here, however for as soon as I truly wore an excellent boho outfit and never my traditional loopy colourful stuff – only for one of many days 😛

Women wore all types of outfits- actually something festival-y goes. Boys wore get together shirts, foolish hats, and the occasional costume. Have enjoyable with it if you need,  don’t should you don’t… that’s just about how BTV went.

Past the Valley Themes

That being stated, there was a theme my yr – SAFARI. The final day had a safari theme and truthfully I might say that almost all of individuals received into it. I truthfully didn’t even get the memo (don’t ask me how 🙁 ) however tons of individuals have been sporting animal print, khaki, and safari hats on New Yr’s Eve. This kindof stunned me given the gang, however individuals actually received into it. So make sure that to examine if there’s a theme whenever you go.

The Kooks 

Time

The Past the Valley timings run from about 12-1pm to Three-4am every day, and that goes for music. The primary stage begins within the early afternoon and ends round 1-2am, and the Dance Tent begins across the similar time and ends later at 3am (Four on NYE). The Jim Beam tent additionally goes on late night time – round 3am additionally. Late night time meals can also be out there (I like to recommend the shredded rib fries late at night time, ha).

Additional actions start earlier (yoga is at 9am, meditations and actions run 10am – 5/6pm) and finish earlier too. The swimming pools are open just about all day, as are the overall shops and so on. Unclear if the showers ever closed however I don’t assume so.

Past the Valley Cash

The bars right here solely took card, so for those who had money you would wish to change it at a couple of totally different factors for these little Past the Valley tickets that you might change for drinks.

So far as the meals tents went, every one was totally different however I might say most accepted card and a few accepted money.

Past the Valley Volunteering

Volunteering was available at Past the Valley Pageant. Volunteers helped with the whole lot from bartending to directing automobiles to the knowledge desk to giving instructions, and the purposes have been open for a very long time. On the web site they record totally different positions and necessities to apply – test it out! You may have to work a couple of shifts (totaling 20 hours) to get a pageant/tenting ticket. Not a nasty deal in case you are brief on money!

You can even apply for market stalls, meals distributors, and different employees (bartending was a separate software for some purpose) on the location as nicely.

Remaining Past the Valley Ideas

  •  In case you are going with pals, be sure to all caravan and drive in collectively. It will make for a completely epic, large camp metropolis. Deliver Straightforward-ups for shade above your tents and chill areas.
  • Be cautious of safety checks
  • In case you camp on the backside of the hill close to orange camp, watch out for an enormous swamp puddle I heard was there if it rains. I heard about individuals who fell waist deep into it 😮
  • Be certain that to take a look at ALL the stages- Dr. Dan’s and Jim Beam included. Festivals are all the time extra enjoyable once you expertise a little bit of the whole lot.
  • This additionally goes for the Sanctuary! Head in there no less than as soon as for a workshop, to paint, or to chill. You may be stunned how enjoyable it’s to let loose some creativity, or how enjoyable it it to attempt some yoga or meditation.
  • Verify my pageant tenting guidelines in case you are touring from distant 🙂
