Roll along the open highway and let the scent of nature carry you away. Delve into an experimental landscape and be welcomed into the oasis of Groovin the Moo (GTM) 2015.
An oasis where Hilltop Hoods, Broods (NZ) and Sticky Fingers all share an adventure of a regional kind with the likes of Flight Facilities, Peaches (CAN), DMA’s, Charli XCX (UK) and many more. Where old friends unite and new friends are made. Where fans and artists alike are encouraged to unplug from the day-to-day hustle of life, and escape to an enchanting, kaleidoscopic retreat.
On the cusp of winter, Groovin the Moo has become a place for those seeking warmth, a space for like-minded people to gather and open their ears to both new and familiar sounds. It’s a tradition for local host communities to participate in and celebrate.
In 2015 the melodic GTM caravan will kick off with traveling through the rolling Adelaide Hills to Oakbank SA on Saturday 25 April (ANZAC Public Holiday). On Sunday 26 April, GTM will head across the Great Southern Wheatbelt of WA to Bunbury WA where the Moo Crew will reunite to round out GTM’s first weekend of the tour as well as the ANZAC long weekend in WA.
Groovin the Moo will then return east to Bendigo VIC, the aureate Victorian goldfields for Saturday 2 May then moove across the border into the ACT for a fun-filled day at the University of Canberra ACT on Sunday 3 May.
For the 2015 Tour finale, it’s up to the Hunter Valley to Maitland on Saturday 9 May, beyond the Great Dividing Range, then finally settling south of the Atherton Tablelands in Townsville Sunday 10 May.
Tickets will be on sale from 9am local time on Tuesday 3 February for the Oakbank SA, Bunbury WA and Bendigo VIC events. Then from 9am local time on Wednesday 4 February tickets go on sale for the Canberra ACT, Maitland NSW and Townsville QLD events.
Don’t forget GTM is calling out to artists, graphic designers, students, professionals and hobbyists to enter the 2015 GTM TEE Competition – round 6 of the annual search for merch! For this year’s GTM TEE Competition, we are asking participants to develop a GTM Souvenir that captures the idyllic retreat that is Australia’s only regional touring music festival. Visit the competitions section at www.gtm.net.au for more info.
