Vans Warped Tour headed to Canberra's Exhibition Park on Friday where we caught the full line-up. Here's the first part to a rather large three-part gallery. Gwendolyn Lee brings us these photos from the pit at the #NoRegrets Days stage where When Giants Sleep opened the stage and Anarbor headlined along with snaps from throughout the day.
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.
Daniel Bolt brings us the second half of photos from Groovin' The Moo in Canberra, ft. Flume, The Temper Trap (pictured), They Might Be Giants, The Kooks, Tame Impala, Pez and Frightened Rabbit.
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).

You can forget about Sunday being a day of rest, with Melbourne alternative rockers The Getaway Plan bringing their mind-blowing Requiem tour to the UC refectory in Canberra, with special guests Break Even, Gatherer and Hands Like Houses.
Even though we arrived at the ANU Bar right after doors opened, my friend and I expected more punters for a Saturday night. Luckily numbers picked up over the course of the night, culminating in a predictably stellar performance from Guineafowl. The rest of Canberra didn't know what they were missing.
Unfortunately due to a mix up on the door, I was late into the gig on the night. As such, I could only hear openers Glass Towers from afar, and although it wasn't the clearest sound, they sounded like a bright and engaging opener for the night - which made me glad for the crowd who saw them, because the two bands that followed were absolutely mesmerising.
After popping my festival cherry at the start of this year with Future Music Festival, I was very excited to head along to something a little bit more up by alley – Groovin’ The Moo.
Truly long running music festivals in Australia are few and far between. To most observers, Big Day Out would take that cake - kicking off in 1992. But when placed against a festival like Glastonbury, which started out in some form over 40 years ago, it pales in comparison. But believe it or not, we do have a few festivals with a similar length history in Australia. And one of them is Canberra's Stonefest.
