Bendigo takes the honour of the first 2011 Groovin’ The Moo Festival to sell out, and in record time too. The other four legs are hot on Bendigo’s tail, so if you are yet to grab a ticket for the event which travels to various regional centres across Australia and features acts like Birds Of Tokyo, Gyroscope, The Drums, The Go! Team, Art vs Science and many many more during April / May, get a move on. Click below to expand this post and re-cap the full details, lineup of acts and grab ticketing links.

The GTM path becomes more entrenched each year, forged by the wonderfully energetic and dedicated audience that make the annual return to Bendigo (30 April), Townsville (1 May), Maitland (7 May), Canberra (8 May) and Bunbury (14 May). With a ticket price at under $100, GTM is one of the most accessible and best value days on the calendar.

Featuring over eleven hours of exciting acts, as well as improved and expanded facilities, this licensed all ages (recommended 16+) event will feature the return of the impressive double outdoor stages as well as the mighty Moolin Rouge dance tent. The culinary needs of all punters will be catered for with an abundance of local food and market stalls along with licensed bar facilities, slingshot rides and chill out areas.

Without further ado, please welcome the Artists (listed in alphabetical order) who are coming along for this year’s adventure:

AC Slater, Architecture In Helsinki, Art vs Science, The Aston Shuffle, Birds of Tokyo, Bliss n Eso, Cut Copy, Darwin Deez, Datarock, Drapht, The Drums, The Go!
