The Beyond The Valley payment plan means the end of festival FOMO
OK, so you really want to go to Beyond The Valley 2017 but your car rego was due a week ago, your rent is up, and you’re still paying off the laptop you bought last Christmas … for work.
But thanks to the festival’s new payment plan, you don’t have to miss out on seeing ScHoolBoy Q, The Presets, Matt Corby, Stormzy, Mura Masa, Stephan Bodzin, and many more, ringing in New Year’s Eve.
So how does it work?
Well, it’s super simple actually. You just need to chuck down 25% of the ticket price to secure your ticket to BTV 2017, and then continue to pay off a portion of the ticket on the 11th of each month until it’s completely paid off. It’s like layby, but for something you actually want – not the $350 golf club your dad desperately needed for his 60th.
Festival co-founder Mike Christidis says the payment plan is a response to the numerous requests from punters who missed out on tickets to the 2016 event because their bank balance was cooked at the time.
“It’s an initiative we’re happy to finally introduce,” Mike says. “Festival tickets are in high demand and often sell out quite quickly. We don’t believe that punters who might not be able to afford a ticket while they’re available should miss out, especially if they are budgeting or taking action now to ensure they can afford and purchase a ticket in the future.
He says the plan – which is being offered for the first time in 2017 – ties in with BTV’s fully inclusive ethos.
“We want to bring music lovers from all walks of life together, and this is an attractive option because everyone’s disposable income varies vastly over periods of time due to so many factors that can often be outside of our control. Plus we don’t want people to upset any landlords or bosses,” he jokes.
Beyond The Valley takes place from Thursday, December 28 to Monday, January 1 at Lardner Park, in Warragul, Victoria. For more information on the payment plan click here.
