Team Groovin the Moo is in the highest of spirits to be welcoming a new bunch of artists to take part in the regional Australian festival fun! With The Presets, Dizzee Rascal (UK), Vance Joy and Wave Racer to The Jezabels, Disclosure (UK), The Kite String Tangle, Violent Soho and Cults (USA) plus many more. The eclectic line up for 2014 is sure to provide another year of pure solid gold for the GTM community and all the new friends who will help to create GTM Oakbank South Australia for the very first time.
For GTM, 2014 symbolises ten years of making the annual overland journey into its much-loved communities that are now considered home. The simple set up and the honest country hospitality of those original GTM’s is still the life blood that flows through the festival today – the double outdoor stages, the glow of the Moolin Rouge Big Top Tent and the variety of the flavorsome, fresh and local produce on offer.
With a legacy of events which sell out, tickets for GTM 2014 will be on sale for the value-packed price of around $100 from 9am local time on Tuesday 4 February for Bendigo VIC, Townsville QLD and Bunbury WA. At 9am local time on Wednesday 5 February tickets go on sale for the Oakbank SA, Maitland NSW and Canberra ACT events.
Would you like to know more about Groovin the Moo and the dynamic manner in which the separate worlds of festival goers, artists, staff, national media and local residents come together? Then come along to GTM’s first exhibition! Presented by Cattleyard Promotions in conjunction with the Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Groovin is a multi-media exhibition featuring graphics, objects, video, music, and writings from the GTM archives that will unfold over two rooms at Maitland Regional Art Gallery from 7 March – 25 May. Entry to the exhibition is free.
Continuing with the design theme, don’t forget GTM is calling out to artists, graphic designers, students, professionals and hobbyists to enter the 2014 GTM TEE Competition – round 5 of the annual search for merch! For this year’s GTM TEE Competition, we are asking participants to develop a GTM community logo or shield that captures the relationship between the event and its unique setting. Visit the competitions section at www.gtm.net.au for more info. While you’re there, sign up to the Moos Flash to be the first to get all the news and festival updates.
