Well this is interesting. A new New Year's Eve festival has been announced, expected to draw 10,000 punters in its first year. Beyond the Valley will be on Phillip Island – the former NYE site of the fated Pyramid Rock Festival.
If you're more into glamping than massive queues and overflowing portaloos, could be this one's for you, because the infrastructure will be "completely devoted to fully catering for patron’s comfort and satisfaction". That means food trucks, boutique beer and cocktail bars, and VIP camping packages. Oh, and a hangover spa. They're calling it a "luxury pop-up hotel", in fact.
