“We are so happy to be able to do a full tour across the country in 2023."
Groovin The Moo will return this April and May, hitting six regions across the country with its first full tour since 2019.
After heading to Maitland, Canberra and Bendigo last year, Groovin The Moo will add SA, WA and Queensland back to its schedule.
The festival will kick off at Wayville in SA on Friday 21 April before heading to Maitland, NSW on Saturday 22 April, Canberra, ACT on Sunday 23 April, Bendigo, Vic on Saturday 29 April, Sunshine Coast, Qld on Sunday 30 April, and Bunbury, WA on Saturday 6 May.
“We have loved calling Townsville our Queensland home over the years, but post pandemic touring life is harder,” organisers said on the decision to relocate the festival in Queensland. “The logistical challenges and increased financial pressures are too great and unfortunately we are not able to return to the top end in 2023.”
On today’s announcement, GTM’s Steve Halpin added: “We are so happy to be able to do a full tour across the country in 2023. We have missed you terribly and can’t wait to bring back the good times around the country. Whilst we are very sad not be returning to Townsville, we look forward to bringing GTM to the Sunshine Coast.”
