This year’s run of the Groovin’ the Moo festival came to a close at Bunbury’s Hay Park on Saturday. Though the festival has been running for a couple of years now, this was the first time I’d ventured along, drawn in part by an eclectic line-up of both Australian and international artists.
Adelaide’s finest gathered together on Thursday night to witness one of Australia’s finest musicians perform in all their glory, Tame Impala.
Tame Impala made time in their busy Groovin' The Moo schedule to play Adelaide's Thebarton Theatre on Thursday night, and the AU review had photographer Kerrie Geier there to show it all to you.
The first thing I did when I got to the Brisbane Convention Centre was buy a Tame Impala band shirt. Being on a student budget, this now means my meals for the rest of week will definitely be mi goring noodles and instant coffee, but it was worth it for these guys. Needless to say I was keen for Tame Impala’s show tonight.
The lineup for Fuji Rock Festival has just been updated, with the 15 additions only adding to the 3-day festival's bursting line-up. Set in Naeba Ski Resort in Japan's central island's western side, the festival has just entered its 17th year and shows no sign of slowing down. With an incredibly eclectic mix of performers (everything from the enthralling vocals of Bjork to DJ Bauer, the inventor of the Harlem Shake, and Japanese folk musician Morio Agata), there's a huge array of choices sure to leave the perfect timetable makers rewriting their plans until their arrival at the festival.

If you live in Victoria, you would know that Bendigo and Ballarat are typically your country town rivals. Aside from Geelong, these two regional cities are the next best thing after Melbourne. Now without sounding biased, my good old hometown of Ballarat has a lot going for it. Home of the Gold Rush, the iconic Lake Wendouree, chips cheese and gravy...we are doing alright down here! But there’s just one thing that Bendigo has that we don’t, one thing that dare I say, really puts it ahead of the old ‘rat a tat – Groovin the Moo.
Having toured Australia off the back of Lonerism in late 2012, it was ambitious of Tame Impala to book Hordern Pavilion just a few months later, but the crowds arrived in droves in anticipation of a more refined show following their overseas ventures.

As a Brisbane girl it’s an exciting experience to make a special trip out of my city and state for a festival. And with the line up at this years Groovin' the Moo, I wasn’t going to miss it for the world, even if it meant two days of 4am wake up calls.

The first Groovin’ the Moo of the year was given the most perfect day for a festival. Big blue skies, a bright shining sun, and not a cloud in sight met Groovers who showed up to the Maitland Showground on Saturday April 27th. The sold out Maitland leg of the festival preceded the Canberra show on Sunday, a big weekend for artist and festival organizers alike.
It’s a temperate autumn evening, which means one’s jacket can be left in the car with the knowledge that you won’t succumb to frostbite. Midnight Juggernauts are a force to be reckoned with, closing their set with stellar hit “Into the Galaxy” and segues smoothly to the other worldly sound of headliners Tame Impala .
