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.
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.
The Thebarton Theatre saw a mix between the young and the old as everyone gathered together to witness what would turn out to be one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.
The Kooks played to a sold out crowd at Adelaide's Thebarton Theatre on Friday night and the AU review had photographer Kerrie Geier there to catch it all.
The sight of Enmore Road tonight was a sea of school aged punters showing copious amounts of butt cheeks and puppy fat. “I obviously didn’t get the memo to wear denim hot pants to The Kooks tonight” was my very ‘clever’ status I posted on Facebook. I entered The Enmore Theatre and reminded myself that I’m getting too old for all-ages gigs at a quarter of a century old.
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.

The Kooks are headed our way for regional festival Groovin’ The Moo and while in town the English rockers will playing a handful of headlining shows around the country. Having graced our shores last year for Splendour In The Grass last year their highly anticipated new national tour will include all major cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Fremantle.
This year's Groovin' The Moo line up has definitely been shown to have appealed to many, with another slew of international and local talent set to grace stages throughout the major regional centres. Most recently, a stack of GTM-bound acts have announced headline dates to accompany their appearance at the festival. Read on for all the details on how to get involved!
Given that it was leaked today, Groovin' The Moo have decided to release the 2013 line up a day ahead of schedule. International acts set to play the regional festival include Tegan and Sara, The Bronx and The Kooks. Check out the full line up below!

Though the 2012 event may be forever remembered as a return to the muddy Byron Bay site and a freak hail storm perhaps heralded by the loud rock of DZ Deathrays (who say their amps miraculously survived the on stage waterfall), ultimately it will be the music that we'll be talking about until the next Splendour rolls along - which we expect to be at their new, permanent, hopefully less muddy home.
