Groovin The Moo 2016 Lineup Announced

UPDATE 31/01/17: The 2017 Groovin The Moo lineup has now been announced.

ORIGINAL STORY: The Groovin The Moo 2016 lineup is upon us, lockin in the likes of Illy, and Danny Brown, Ms Mr and more for the regional Aussie festival.

Unveiled on triple j Breakfast with Matt Okine and Alex Dyson this morning, the Moo’s 27-act roster this year also features Twenty One Pilots, Vic Mensa, In Heart’s Wake and Hottest 100 winners The Rubens, Alison Wonderland, Boy & Bear and more.

Local acts are still to be added at each of the festival’s stops, as are some triple j Unearthed competition winners. Catch the event’s first lineup announcement in all its glory, below.

As for old mate Shannon Noll, the former Australian Idol runner-up said he was open to performing at this year’s GTM after this beautiful #ShannonNollforGTM2016 petition was launched, but he unfortunately hasn’t made the lineup. At least, he hasn’t just yet.

Poised for six stops across Australia this April and May, GTM 2016 will kick off in Maitland on 23rd April before moving through Canberra, Oakbank, Bendigo, Townsville and Bunbury.

Shortly after GTM announced its 2016 dates in November 2015, it was reported that the festival has been losing money in Townsville and had asked the local government to help plug a $300,000 budget hole to keep that leg of the event afloat.

The 2015 edition of Groovin The Moo featured the likes of Charli XCX, A$AP Ferg and Peaches, as well as locals like Wolfmother, San Cisco and Hilltop Hoods. Catch this year’s lineup, below.

UPDATE 28/01/16, 9.55am: Shannon Noll wasn’t named on today’s Groovin The Moo 2016 lineup announcement and social media is ropeable.

UPDATE 29/03/2016: Mutemath and Vic Mensa have both cancelled their appearances and have been replaced by Mutemath and What So Not.
