The vocal on single ‘Afraid’ has been sampled more recently on Four Tet’s alias project KH on ‘Only Human’.
Beyond The Valley’s lineup is as eclectic and diverse as ever, the Victorian festival, famous for its incredible experience aspects including stage design, art, lifestyle and wellbeing, will spread their music programme across 3 distinct stages, as well as introducing a new Podcast stage for the first time.
The festival, which sold out instantly in 2019, has now opened up presale registrations.

Beyond The Valley joined the Keychain pledge in 2018, whereby 140 festival partners committed to a 50:50 gender balanced lineup by 2022 which they have achieved.
Main stage artists will be performing in the 100,000sqm natural amphitheatre, made for live music experiences. The iconic Dance Tent will also make its return, featuring a 70-metre wide LED wall and renowned Funktion-One soundsystem. Dr Dan’s stage, the much-loved multilevel dancefloor colosseum, will reveal a new reimagined design for the 2022 festival.
Patrons can also step away from the music and go for a swim in the pools at the Beach Club, or uncover Schmall Klüb, a concealed party with spontaneous sets from your favourite DJs only accessible through a concealed secret entrance, via a portaloo door.
Beyond The Valley will be introducing a daily entry ticket, so punters have the option to stay at accommodation in the local areas or go home each night. For the first time there will also be viewing platforms and Auslan interpreters at the Main Stage, and a designated accessible campsite positioned close to the festival arena.
Other features confirmed by the festival today include interactive art installations, the Poof Doof ‘Pride Patrol’, Speed Dating, Open Mic, Fortune Teller, Doof Stick Making, Yoga, Pilates, Meditation & more.
As part of Beyond The Valley’s ongoing partnership with AIME, $1 for every ticket sold will be donated to the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience to support their programs. AIME’s initiatives have provided opportunities and connections in the form of structured mentoring to over 25,000 First Nations high school students around Australia to date.
For the first time, Beyond the Valley will be using registered charity Humanitix as their ticketing platform. Through their booking fees, education projects are funded for the world’s most disadvantaged children to close the global education gap.
