The Groovin The Moo 2017 lineup is here, and it is large. Featuring a remarkably eclectic pool of local and international artists – most of whom appeared in last week’s triple j Hottest 100 – the travelling rural festival is sure to be a huge success once more.
Homegrown talent includes Amy Shark, Tash Sultana, Violent Soho, Montaigne, George Maple, Hayden James, L-Fresh The Lion, Methyl Ethel and Slumberjack among others.
The international visitors to Groovin The Moo have consistently grown stronger and more eclectic, with 2017 as no exception. The most left-field addition is a tie between metalcore legends Architects and once-popular hair metal group The Darkness, while diverse flavours are coming in from K.Flay, the brilliant Laura Jane Grace-fronted Against Me!, current flavour of the month Loyle Carner, and triple j favourites The Wombats and Milky Chance. While D.R.A.M had previously been announced as headliner, he pulled out before the full lineup could even be announced.
