It’s time to get egg-cited! Groovin the Moo (GTM) is ready to crack open and run into its six beloved regions around Australia this April and May. With an egg-perience that’s hard to beat, GTM offers a full day of country hospitality, amazing music and seriously good times.
The GTM journey is as inviting as a hot breakfast on a cold morning. With a warm, welcoming focus, the festival strives to connect attendees with the artists, with the local community and with the region itself. Plus, it’s the perfect way to make memories with your old mates, and mates you’re yet to meet.
Speaking of meeting new mates, allow us to introduce you to your GTM2020 touring line up.

The recent triple j Hottest 100 proved to be sunny side up for GTM artists including Mallrat (#3 “Charlie”, #59 “Nobody’s Home”), breakout success story Tones and I (#4 “Dance Monkey”, #15 “Never Seen The Rain”, #26 “Johnny Run Away”)and Slowly Slowly (#57 “Jellyfish”) with E^ST, Hayden James, Dope Lemon and San Cisco all claiming spots in the countdown too.
Our international contingent is stacked with artists heading down under, including rappers AJ Tracey (UK), Bhad Bhabie (USA), Maxo Kream (USA), YBN Cordae (USA) and country “trailer trap” sensation Blanco Brown (USA). Singer songwriter Clairo (USA) and DJ/producer Channel Tres (USA) will also grace our backyards.
Some artists with killer back catalogues will hit the stages of GTM, including the recently reformed Supergrass (UK) celebrating 25 years of tunes and Kelis (USA), who will bring her milkshake to the Moo. You’ll also be able to bust moves to “Apache (Jump On It)” thanks to Sugarhill Gang (USA) andbewhipped into a “Sandstorm” frenzy with Darude (FIN).
And there’ll be plenty more to come! Stay tuned for triple j Unearthed, Fresh Produce and Handpicked artists to be announced, along with our Community program.
Promoter Steve Halpin of Cattleyard said;
“We’re really looking forward to GTM2020. There’s something for everyone with this line up and we can’t wait to open the gates at each show.”

IMPORTANT TICKETING INFORMATION
Moshtix is the only official online ticketing outlet. We urge you to double check you are purchasing from Moshtix only, and not a third-party ticketing website (such as Viagogo, Gumtree, eBay, or unknown Facebook accounts). We cannot confirm the legitimacy of any tickets purchased via a third-party ticketing outlet in these instances and don’t want to see our genuine GTM fans scammed out of their money.
To save you from any extra stress, ensure you already have a Moshtix account (and you know your username and password) and if not, then don’t forget to sign up for an account in the next few days.
If you are purchasing on behalf of your friends, make sure you have everyone’s full name and date of birth ready to go – double check these! If you need to reissue a ticket for the incorrect spelling or DOB, there is a $10 reissue fee, so make sure it’s correct to start with.
We also have a few official ticketing outlets in each region so if you’re keen for a face to face transaction, head to the Info page on our website.
GTM is a licenced all ages event.
