The annual Groovin’ the Moo (GTM) cosmogram has announced its 2012 lineup much to the delight of regional music lovers around the country with a record ten international Artists alongside local essentials coming together for Australia’s only touring regional event.

From City and Colour, Kaiser Chiefs to Public Enemy and more, this will be one fun techni-colour spectrum of artist-all-sorts handpicked for GTM fans to enjoy this May.

Now in its eighth percussive year, the GTM tribe of 75,000 strong across the land will hold up the sky for another gathering culminating in a happiness explosion of epic proportions.

Promoter Stephen Halpin relayed in anticipation of the 2012 events saying “I’m really excited about this lineup. So many fresh locals, festival favourites and breaking internationals to keep the outdoor stages rocking and the Moolin Rouge banging. Looking forward to checking out Chiddy Bang, plus Mutemath and The Maccabees who are making their first tours of Australia. I’m sure everyone will give them a friendly GTM welcome.”
