Renowned local talent and ARIA award-winning artists, The Rubens, have announced a new outdoor music festival in Camden’s Onslow Park next February.
Organised in partnership with TEG’s Live Subsidiary, MJR Presents, the festival ValleyWays, will see some of South-West Sydney’s most talented performers take to the stage with several emerging artists.
“We are so thrilled to be putting on a big outdoor festival in the town we all grew up in! Our community has been big supporters of the band over the last 10 years, and this is our way of giving back, The Rubens said.
“ValleyWays will bring the best music to our own backyard, and we hope to do this for many years to come!”
Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, and Minister for Trade and Industry, Stuart Ayres said the festival would deliver a new cultural experience for the Camden community, enhance the region’s tourism offering and create local jobs.
“Our investment in this event for 2022 and 2023 supports our COVID-19 Road to Recovery program by assisting with event operational costs so that organisers can offer the most affordable tickets. It also aligns with the Visitor Economy Strategy 2030 and Western Sydney Visitor Economy Strategy to deliver new events to attract local and interstate visitors,” Mr Ayres said.
The Rubens will be joined by headliners Skegss, Middle Kids, Slowly Slowly plus a line-up of supporting artists including Stevan, Becca Hatch and Hollie Col to entertain a crowd of up to 5,000 attendees from 12pm through to 10pm.
One artist or band will also have the the chance to join the ValleyWays line up thanks to triple j Unearthed. More details on this opportunity will be announced in January 2022.
Member for Camden, Peter Sidgreaves said the event is very exciting news for Camden.
“This new event is sure to be a magnet for music lovers and will drive visitors to our local community. There is so much to see and do in our region and I know our businesses will very much enjoy the economic injection this new festival will create,” Mr Sidgreaves said.
Promoter presale tickets will be available from 22 November 2021, with tickets for the public going live on 23 November 2021.
