Groovin The Moo is building up serious hype ahead of its 2017 edition - on top of the relocation to Wayville, the absurdly incredible roster has just been bolstered by the arrival of dance veterans PNAU - keeping in mind that the lineup already includes Amy Shark, Against Me!, The Smith Street Band, Tash Sultana and many, many more. There is also a swag of involvement from the South Australian community, both Adelaide-based and beyond.
There will be a variety of artists and collectives showcasing their wares at Wayville. Aerosol artist Zedr will be "graffin the Moo" - providing his own brand of abstract aerosol art across the Showgrounds, adding twists and turns in every detail. While despite being a global identity these days, Ironlak's Sydney roots are not to be forgotten. Mount Barker based collective Ink Pot Arts have been a regular fixture for the past two editions of Groovin the Moo; while the relocation to the big smoke may prove slightly difficult to have cows flank crowds to the gates, the curious question of what Ink Pot may do for paddock art still remains.
And that's not all - work experience will be running rife at Groovin the Moo. Volunteers will be involved from TAFE SA, Music SA, and Mount Barker High - with roles focused on not only establishing future career pathways, but also looking at working with a hands-on approach in a music festival environment; especially at one as big as Groovin the Moo.
