Groovin The Moo 2018 Lineup Announcement

Jan 31, 2018  ·  2 min read

The Groovin The Moo lineup for 2018 has just dropped and festival organisers are calling it as “full as your nanna’s knitting bag”. And even though it’s their job to enthusiastically spew similes like that to promote the epicness of their own doing, they’re right.

The Groovin The Moo 2018 lineup is as full as your nanna’s knitting bag. It’s as full as a goog. It’s as full as a New Delhi steam train. It’s as full as a centipede’s sock drawer. You probably get the picture. It’s stacked.

The festival tours between six regional interstate areas over three weekends and one of those spots happens to be Canberra. We’re not sure if Canberra is “regional” as such, but we’ll take the festival no questions asked.

The sturdy lineup is littered with international legends like Portugal. The Man, Public Service Broadcasting, Royal Blood, Duke Dumont and German DJ, Claptone; as well as a robust mix of local heroes like Baker Boy, Flight Facilities, Winston Surfshirt​, Paul Kelly, and pub rock icons, Grinspoon.
