Is it that time of year already? Times really does fly! Groovin The Moo, Australia’s premier regional festival, has today announced their dates for 2012 after a blockbuster year in 2011 saw them play host to over 75,000 music lovers at their five sold-out dates.

“I loved the 2011 shows – the crowds, the bands, the weather, everything was amazing. So after a good break the GTM team can’t wait for 2012. The lineup is coming together very nicely with an exciting selection of locals joined by a great bunch of international acts – including a couple that have never toured Australia before” said promoter Stephen Halpin.

The 2012 GTM artist line-up will be announced in early February 2012 with tickets on sale soon after. In the meantime, GTM is encouraging anyone with creative flair to start thinking of a great idea for our “Grass Roots” GTM TEE-SHIRT. Judges will be looking for something that embodies the ritual of the gathering and the spirit of GTM’s rural setting. All details can be found at
