Groovin’ The Moo Cancelled For 2021

The Groovin’ The Moo music festival will not go ahead in Australia in 2021 although GTM boss Steve Halpin expects in back in 2022.

A statement from Groovin’ The Moo reads:

With great sadness, Cattleyard Promotions has confirmed that it is not possible for Groovin the Moo (GTM) to return in 2021. With the current restrictions in place and the uncertainty around when they will end, there are too many factors that prevent GTM from touring the country to deliver the event in the way that patrons have grown familiar with, and fond of, over the years.

Steve Halpin from Cattleyard Promotions said:

“It is with a heavy heart that we need to postpone Groovin the Moo for the second year. We’re really going to miss GTM and not being able to spend another year with our crews, artists, team members, suppliers and you!

“We know it has been a very strange and tough time for everyone. We are so grateful to all of you who kept your GTM 2020 ticket – refund information will be sent out soon. We know it’s a big ask, but if you’re able to hold on to your ticket a bit longer, it will really help us in welcoming GTM back next year. Thank you to each and every one of you for sticking with us – we can’t wait to return in 2022”
