It’s the festival that has offered up some pretty awesome lineups over the years, but the 2020 iteration of Groovin The Moo could possibly be the best yet.
Yep the folks over at Moo HQ have seen fit to drop the 2020 lineup this week and it’s an absolute doozy.
This year’s fest is led by Aussie worldbeater Tones And I whose Dance Monkey was one of THE juggernaut hits of 2019.
Aside from the Melbourne-based hitmaker, the Aussie contingent for GTM 2020 is strong with the likes of Gang Of Youths, The Cat Empire, Ruby Fields, Kira Puru, WAAX, Mallrat, Slowly Slowly, E^ST, Hayden James, Dope Lemon, San Cisco, and The Veronicas.
If their chaotic set at the recent Good Things Festival is anything to go by, expect Jess and Lisa Origliasso to pull out all stops at GTM 2020.
The international contingent is no less stacked with one of the big surprises Kelis confirming she will bring her milkshake to the Moo!
Also making the trek are the recently-reformed UK rockers Supergrass who are celebrating 25 years of indie-pop masterpieces.
Another massive surprise is the inclusion of hip hop royalty The Sugarhill Gang whose 1979 hit Rapper’s Delight is widely regarded as introducing hip hop to the mainstream.
If that wasn’t enough, rappers AJ Tracey, Bhad Bhabie, Maxo Kream, YBN Cordae, country “trailer trap” sensation Blanco Brown, Singer-songwriter Clairo, and DJ/producer Channel Tres (USA) will also be making an appearance!
Tickets are on sale from 8am on Wednesday 12 February.
