Beyond The Valley Artists Tell Us Their Dumbest Ever NYE Resolutions

The upcoming 2015 edition of Beyond The Valley is looking set to be THE place to be, if you like ringing in the new year surrounding by insanely good live music, kewl dudes ands dudettes and killer bloody vibes.

To continue the ramp-up of excitement, and to help you navigate the salty waters of those ultimately ill-fated NYE resolutions, we got a handful of the acts set to bring the ruckus to Victorias Gippsland Parklands, to tell us the singular dumbest January 1st idea they tried to commit to. Grab the full BTV lineup and ticket deets at the bottom.

The Kite String Tangle

Once I made a resolution to enter every competition that I saw. I won a Nintendo Wii in the second month and stopped entering competitions after that. No regrets.


I once thought it was a great idea to see how long I could go without eating Maccas, KFC, Hungry Jacks, Red Rooster etc. At the time I thought it was completely unachievable but I lasted about 18months. Every Sunday when I was hung over I literally just didn’t know what to eat for a whole year and a half. Looking back on it now I completely regret doing this. I have no idea what I was thinking at the time. In fact I even put on weight during that 18 month period. Dumbest thing I’ve ever done hands down.

A couple of years back I promised myself I’d take 3 months off alcohol in the New Year. I had every intention of achieving my goal, but fell short by 2 months and 30 days… forgetting I’d arranged a New Years day kick-on with all the lads in my drunken haste the night before …Peer pressure is a hell of a thing.


It’s always to drink less. It starts off all good and well, then next thing you know its Friday night and you’re naked, gallivanting down Brunswick Street with a Melbourne Bitter tin in one hand and a mixed kebab with the lot in the other.

The Rubens

The first New Years resolution I made was my last. I don’t remember what it was but I realised that I don’t think I’ve got the capacity to follow through. I don’t make resolutions because I always look like a goose when I inevitably cave in a few days later! – Sam Margin


“Take More Risks” Circa 2014 – Drove my car through my garage door trying a risky manoeuvre and lost $800 at the casino.
