Valley announces first-ever Australian shows as part of Lost In Translation tour


Best known for their viral TikTok song Like 1999, the indie pop band will be playing three east coast dates.

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Valley has had the kind of success that’s only possible in the internet era. After meeting in a practice studio booking mix-up, the four musicians joined forces to form one indie-pop wonder.

Their first release after being signed, Sucks To See You Doing Better, got the buzz going – it was nominated for a coveted Juno Award and helped gain new fans across North America. But it was the group’s 2021 song Like 1999 that propelled them to dizzying heights.

Valley Lost In Translation Tour

  • Aug 15 – The Triffid, Brisbane
  • Aug 17 – Factory Theatre, Sydney
  • Aug 18 – Max Watt’s, Melbourne

The song took off on TikTok, securing a whopping 23 million views and winning the hearts of fans across the world.

This August, the band will be heading to Australia for the first time ever in support of their third album, Lost In Translation, set to be released on June 23. So far, fans have heard the singles Break For You, Throwback Tears and Good, But Not For You from the upcoming album.

Valley has already brought the tour through North America, where they sold out gigs in their Toronto hometown as well as Vancouver, New York and Los Angeles. Their quick jaunt in Australia will see them play in Brisbane and Syndey before finishing off at Melbourne’s Max Watt’s on August 18.

“We are so excited to play Australia because it feels like such a faraway land to us. We’ve been practising saying our ‘nourahs’ and buying the highest SPF we can possibly find,” says the band. “We’re coming for you Aus!”

Tickets to see Valley this August are set to go on sale on May 26 at 11am local time with a presale for Frontier members starting on May 24. There will also be VIP packages available for each show featuring a band meet-and-greet, early listening to two tracks, as well as posters and merch.
