Groovin the Moo’s 2018 line up is as full as your nanna’s knitting bag!

Weaving its way into six regions around Australia over three consecutive weekends, Groovin the Moo (GTM) throws open the gates for a huge day of country hospitality, incredible music and seriously fun times.

GTM is about the journey, the destination and the experience. There’s plenty to discover on the way to each Moo. Once there you can indulge in what makes GTM and each region so special – our diverse communities and all they have to offer including craftmakers, friendly faces and fresh farm produce.

These elements seamlessly intertwine with our artists and we’re thrilled to drop 29 stitches of the GTM 2018 tapestry.

We can’t wait to head around the country with these artists, and we’ve got more to come with our Fresh Produce and Community programs showcasing what’s on offer from each of our beloved regions.”
