From Gloucester and Maitland, along the Hume to Albury and Canberra, out to Naranderra and up to Darwin, across to Townsville, back down to Bendigo and west to Bunbury – communities of locals, artists, family members, crews, travelers and guests alike have all gathered under the banner of ‘the Moo’.
All communities (past and present) are an appreciated and integral part of the Groovin’ the Moo (GTM) story and GTM is pretty darn excited to be able to meet a new one – Oakbank South Australia, you’re officially the first stop on the national 2014 Groovin’ the Moo Tour.
A new place to pitch the Moolin Rouge, set up the Main stages, lay out the tucker, open the bar, meet the locals and invite some friends.
“It’s taken a few years, but we are all very excited to welcome South Australia into the GTM Family. Oakbank Racecourse is a beautiful venue and the 2014 line-up is shaping up nicely already so we can’t wait to launch the GTM Tour in SA”, said Stephen Halpin from Cattleyard Promotions.
Oakbank Racecourse SA kicks off the tour on Friday 25 April (ANZAC Public Holiday), followed by Maitland Showground NSW on Saturday 26 April and University of Canberra ACT on Sunday 27 April. Then it’s off to Bendigo’s Prince Of Wales Showground VIC on Saturday 3 May, Townsville’s Murray Sports Complex QLD on Sunday 4 May and last but certainly not least, Bunbury’s Hay Park WA on Saturday 10 May 2014.
There’s plenty of Groovin’ the Moo dates for the planner. Tickets will be on sale from Tuesday 4 February 2014 for the value-packed price of around $100 with the Artist line-up coming to life on Wednesday 29 January 2014. Sign up to the Moosflash at GTM.NET.AU or make sure you’re following @groovinthemoo for the latest news, info and competitions.
“…A massive high 5 needs to be given to the organisers of GTM. Besides the fact that it is so smoothly ran (no waiting lines anywhere!), it is just such a fantastic concept that gives regional cities across the country the chance to experience some of the best local and international music that they may not otherwise have access to” – The Au Review
