Groovin' The Moo 2012 - Bunbury
Rich feathers…precious stones. The Groovin’ the Moo (GTM) cosmogram returns in 2012. With the milestone of a record ten international Artists alongside local essentials coming together for Australia’s only touring regional event, the scene has been set for a ritual of musical and communal expression. From City and Colour, Kaiser Chiefs to Public Enemy and more, this will be one fun techni-colour spectrum of artist-all-sorts handpicked for GTM fans to enjoy this May.

Now in its eighth percussive year, the GTM tribe of 75,000 strong across the land will hold up the sky for another gathering culminating in a happiness explosion of epic proportions. Sporting head dress and holding talisman, White Eagle Desert Dweller aka Stephen Halpin (GTM Promoter, Cattleyard Promotions) relayed in anticipation, “I’m really excited about this lineup. So many fresh locals, festival favourites and breaking internationals to keep the outdoor stages rocking and the Moolin Rouge banging. Looking forward to checking out Chiddy Bang, plus Mutemath and The Maccabees who are making their first tours of Australia. I’m sure everyone will give them a friendly GTM welcome.”
With a history of sell-out events, in 2012 the five shows will again be ready to cater for all ages, as well as being licensed (recommend 16+). GTM is excited. In exchange for a single joyous day with its much missed sidekicks, a sacrifice of rich musical and culinary offerings will be put forth to satiate the clan’s eyes, ears and bellies. Twenty five artists will be presented ceremoniously on a double outdoor stage and by the voodoo glow of the Moolin Rouge Big Top tent before those who have astral plane travelled, caught magic carpet train or bus from interstate, country town, regional centre and city. For those who are ready, with a ticket price at under $100 (or two pineapples, rather), cometh with your tribe. It’s time to partake in a day where we give, receive, beam and shake.
