Groovin The Moo Will Return This Year With A Full National Run

Australia’s beloved regional romp Groovin The Moo will be back this year for its first full national run since 2019.

The fest has announced its 2023 dates, heading to six states and territories around Australia this April and May.

“We have missed you terribly”

However, there will be one big change this year, with the festie visiting Queensland’s Sunshine Coast instead of its usual Townsville.

Promoters blamed “logistical challenges” and “increased financial pressures” for the move.

“We are so happy to be able to do a full tour across the country in 2023,” GTM’s Steve Halpin said in a press statement.

“We have missed you terribly and can’t wait to bring back the good times around the country. Whilst we are very sad not be returning to Townsville, we look forward to bringing GTM to the Sunshine Coast.”

Last year, Groovin returned for the first time since COVID, heading to only three cities – Maitland, Canberra and Bendigo.

The lineup included international acts Wolf AliceBROODSThomas HeadonSnakehipsMilky Chance, Riton and Chaii, as well as local acts Hilltop HoodsMiddle KidsPeking DukAlice IvyHockey DadJesswarJK-47Polaris and many more.
