We recently sat down to chat with Caleb, who shared humble words about all this and more.

Festival Review: Groovin' The Moo - Maitland Showgrounds (09.05.15)

With the recent flooding that has affected the Hunter Region for the past month, enthusiastic punters should have arrived at Maitland Showground with their wellies pulled up and ready for mud. The flooded paddocks alongside the highway just out of town bode for a messy occasion but it was a pleasant surprise to find upon entrance a solid dry ground with nary a fleck of mud in sight...

Groovin' The Moo came to Bendigo for another year, bringing with it a brilliant array of talent both from Australia and abroad.

Festival Review: Groovin' The Moo - Bendigo Showgrounds (02.05.15)

On the third leg of the tour, Groovin' The Moo sprung into action at the Prince Of Wales Showground in Bendigo. The weather looked ominous at the start but fortunately, the clouds cleared for a beautiful warm sunny day that was ripe for good music vibes all day long.

Festival Review: Groovin The Moo - Hay Park, Bunbury (26.04.15)

The cars were packed, the cow onesies dusted off and the fast food outlet lines were long – Groovin The Moo had arrived. We’d all spent the day in wait, enviously scrolling past the Oakbank highlights flooding our newsfeed, planning out our timetables like tactical masterminds. In true WA form the sun was out for an easy 25 degree day as we crossed the grassy grounds of Hay Park to the gate. Some people seemed aimless and there were a few tears spotted by the info gate as it seemed the sold out status of the festival was still hitting punters hard, but ticket in hand we pressed on pass the gathering pile of deodorant cans and the sceptical bag checker asking “Really?” as a young girl handed over her sacred bottle of perfume.

Festival Review: Groovin' The Moo - Oakbank Racecourse (25.04.15)

It quickly became obvious that if you came to Groovin the Moo in Oakbank expecting to your carefully planned, Coachella-ready festival outfit snapped by a photographer, you were probably gonna have a bad time. Recent wintry and rainy weather stuck with the hills throughout the day and night, turning the Oakbank Racecourse into a sludgy mud pit by the time people started leaving/sliding out at the end of the night. It's testament to the line up GTM brought through this year, that people stuck it out and didn't give up; rather, embracing the mud and the rain and getting as chaotic as the elements did.

Photo Gallery: Groovin the Moo - Oakbank Racecourse, Adelaide (25.04.15)

The first leg of the Groovin the Moo festival was held at Oakbank, in the Adelaide Hills. Despite the steady rain which turned the horse racing track into a mud pit, everyone was in good spirits. A great range of music, from Wolfmother and on the main stages. to RL Grime and A$AP Ferg in the Moolin Rouge tent, there was something for everyone. Our photographer John Goodridge was there front and centre to bring you these photos from the day.
