Groovin the Moo will say goodbye to its traditional home in Maitland opting to take over Foreshore Park for its 2024 in New South Wales leg.
More than 25,000 music lovers are expected to descend on the city for the festival, Groovin the Moo’s only stop in New South Wales this year.
Renowned for its diverse lineup, featuring top-notch local and international artists this year the local edition will be one for the history books.
With stops in major cities like Adelaide, Canberra, Bendigo, Sunshine Coast, and Bunbury, the festival is set to draw massive crowds nationwide.
“Groovin the Moo will be a valuable addition to this year’s events calendar, allowing locals to experience some of the best Australian and international acts in their own backyard,” Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said.
“On the back of unforgettable performances last year by Elton John and Paul McCartney, and ahead of next month’s sold-out Pink concert, Newcastle has become a must-stop destination for promoters looking for a world-class city to include on their national concert tour schedule.”
King Street Hotel co-owner Greg Mathew also welcomed the news.
“Having major events such as Groovin The Moo select Newcastle is a great sign of how our city has grown and also how important it is to the Australian music scene,” Mr Mathew said.
“It’s also a great boost for local business to have such a landmark festival call Newcastle home for its NSW leg.
“Newcastle has been a huge supporter of all genres of music and I am sure the city will embrace GTM.”
