Beyond all the hype of the remodelled Big Day Out or the urban deconstruction of the ATP, you’ll find a series of kick-ass country parties called Groovin in the Moo. These have been going for a while and have had amazing success. The line-up is always Australian heavy and it’s the sort of bands you wanna get down with. I went to a similar festival a while back and I was in awe of how ‘into it’ the locals were. I guess triple J is the station of choice for youth in all corners of the country as they do come out for these shows. In a big way.
Bendigo has already sold-out but there are tickets left for others. So check out Alison Wonderland, Alpine, Last Dinosaurs, Midnight Juggers, Temper Trap, Tame Impala and golden boy Flume. Not a bad day in the paddock.
