The final stop of the Groovin The Moo festival tour landed in Hay Park, Bunbury where the likes of The Temper Trap, The Kooks, Tegan and Sara, Midnight Juggernauts, The Amity Affliction, The Bronx and more entertained the huge crowd for the day. Our man Stuart Sevastos was there to bring the highlights of the day.
Despite winter insistently creeping through the last cracks of summer the word on the street is JOY and the streets are paved with GOLD. News from Vance Joy, JOY 94.9 and Laine Lane and The Amity Affliction go gold.
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.
Groovin the Moo at the University of Canberra kicked off with rad performances from Last Dinosaurs, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Urthboy, DZ Deathrays, Matt and Kim, Seth Sentry, The Amity Affliction and Alpine (pictured).

Last Saturday saw some of the worlds' tastiest bands play for the under-18 festival "Live it Up" at Brisbane's RNA Showgrounds - such as The Amity Affliction and The Getaway Plan and many more!. Happy vibes all 'round despite the in-climate weather. Jacob Schneider shot these photos with a grin ear to ear the whole day.
When you’re a student who lives at Uni and whose few ventures into the outside world tend to be going out after dark it’s very easy to forget that there are underagers in the world. But in reality it was only a couple of years ago that I was eagerly counting down the days till I turned 18 so I could finally get out to gigs. And so with that in mind I really do appreciate concerts with an underage focus such as Live It Up Music Festival.
