Happy Tuesday mates, and what a glorious Tuesday it is. The Groovin’ The Moo 2017 line up dropped this morning and hooley dooley, it’s looking ace.
UK indie rock trio The Wombats are set to headline, with fellow British rockers The Darkness and Snakehips also making an appearance. Punk legends Against Me!, DJ Dillon, K-Flay and Milky Chance are also set to grace our shores with their presence, and ears with their tunes.
Home-grown artists include Amy Shark and Tash Sultana, fresh from their #2 and #3 place in the Hottest 100. Alt-rock quad Violent Soho will be smashing out hits while continuing to ride the success of WACO. Local acts Allday, Northeast Party House, The Jungle Giants, The Smith Street Band and Thundamentals are also coming along for the ride.
Check out the official launch video below.
Don’t worry about gumboots and Des’ Minibus this year, Adeladians, as the regional festival is relocating to the Wayville Showgrounds after 4 years at Oakbank. The festival has also shifted to a Friday for SA.
