Groovin The Moo is not going ahead in 2020

Holy smokes, it's a big moo-d

*Update: It has been announced that Groovin the Moo will not be going ahead with the 2020 tour scheduled for this coming April and May.

This is the first time since the inaugural Groovin the Moo was held in NSW in 2005 that they’re unable to bring the festival to regions across the country. The Government’s recommendations together with the uncertainty of these times makes it impossible to push forward with GTM this year.

Promoters Steve Halpin and Rod Little say, “There is nothing that we love more than seeing our Moo Crew in each of our regions and we are deeply saddened that this won’t be happening this year. Our sincere thanks to everyone who has been involved in GTM this year and in years past. We’re aware that this is impacting many people around the world and we encourage you to look after each other.”

If you’ve already bought your ticket you have two options – hold onto your ticket for GTM 2021 or contact Moshtix to receive a complete refund.

Glorious throwbacks, international heavy-hitters, Aussie heroes, oh yeah and ‘Sandstorm’ (possibly on repeat) – holy cow, it is time to get excited for Groovin The Moo 2020.

There surely isn’t another regional touring festival in Australia that goes as big as Groovin The Moo, and 2020 looks like it might just be their biggest and best yet.

Where do we even start? The international contingent here is absolutely blooming. We’ve got rappers Bhad Bhabie, AJ Tracey, and YBN Cordae preparing their visas. They’ll be joined by country-trap sensation Blanco Brown, incredible producer Channel Tres, and pop singer-songwriter Clairo. 

That’s before we dig into the legends that are heading our way – like the recently reformed Supergrass, our favourite milkshake maker Kelis, or the one-and-only Mr Sandstorm Darude.

Don’t think it’s the internationals that will be bringing all the fun, because as always Groovin The Moo have assembled a top-notch Australian contingent. Quite possibly one of the best rock acts this country has delivered in the last decade will be in attendance, that’s right Gang of Youths are back. They’ll perform alongside party-starters The Cat Empire, actual queens The Veronicas, as well as Mallrat, our 2019 Artist to Watch Ruby Fields, WAAX, Tones and I, Slowly Slowly, and Dope Lemon.

Did we mention that’s not even scraping the surface? Because as always there is still a STACK more music still to come.
