Groovin the Moo 2022 | Fresh Produce Artists Announced

Groovin the Moo 2022 is releasing a flock of incredible artists out of the paddock for April shows in Maitland, Canberra, and Bendigo.

The poor souls at GTM have had to wait out a pandemic before jumping back on the horse. But at last, the time has come! The time for mates, drinks, glitter, doc Martens, moshing, and of course, live music.

You’ll be happy to hear Groovin the Moo 2022 is hosting a lineup for the ages. Whether you wanna headbang to Hilltop Hoods, or sing your lungs out to Middle Kids, this years’ lineup has a little something for everyone.

Lineup

First things first, the lineup. As you can see below, GTM 2022 has made a strong effort to include a diverse pool of artists. Expect old favourites as well as emerging artists. There’s talent all the way from Syndey to Perth, and GTM has covered as many bases as possible.

“It’s been a long time since opening our GTM gates and we can’t wait to see you again. And for those of you heading to your first Moo, we are so excited to welcome you. We’ve got more to share with you too – stay tuned for our Fresh Produce and Community Program additions coming soon” – Promotor Steve Halpin of Cattleyard.

Fresh Produce Artists

To celebrate the return of Groovin the Moo, the lineup has been extended to include the hottest local acts to every Maitland, Canberra, and Bendigo show.
