GTM 2013 what a trip!
First things first…THANK YOU to everyone who made this possibly the best GTM so far – if you are reading this then we are talking to you!
Thanks for dancing, singing, dressing in a onesie and basically being awesome.
We are slowly growing up but we would not be where we are if it wasn’t for ALL OF YOU so we would like to raise a glass and toast you for being part of our little commoonity!
Now lets take a little trip back in time…We kicked off GTM 2013 with Maitland and Canberra and they both set the tone for the rest of the tour.
Mother Nature was extremely happy with us and provided one of the warmest days in 30 years for our Canberra show (perhaps it’s because we moved our Canberra show away from Mothers Day who knows but it was excellent!)
Next stop…Bendigo and Townsville and all we can say is that it was 100% party vibes! Our friends from Channel [V] even brought their stage dive antics to Townsville enticing a few of the bands and punters to conquer their fear of heights and take the plunge. Check out The Bronx and Seth Sentry doing the dive.
Four shows down and we packed our bags and headed to the West Coast for the final installment of GTM 2013 in Bunbury aka FUNBURY. Even the fear of semi cyclonic winds did not stop our excellent team getting the Moolin Rouge tent up and ready for the last shebang and surprise, surprise it was blue skies and sunshine! Thinking back we had possibly the best weather we could of asked for so we need to give Mother Nature a huge high five for playing nice.
Check out a few Moo Moments with Matt and Kim, Frightened Rabbit, Tuka, Ellesquire, Seth Sentry, Pez and even a sneaky appearance by 360.
One thing, which is a definite is that Australian bands are most certainly taking over the world and we need to give our friends at triple j a big thanks for making this happen! If you are an unsigned band make sure you head over to triple j unearthed and upload a profile because you never know what could happen next!
With age you learn a few things and as we are turning the ripe old age of TEN next year we have learnt a few things…The main thing being we absolutely love what we do but even more so, we love having the chance to meet up with you every year!
Maitland, Canberra, Bendigo, Townsville and Bunbury you never fail to disappoint and that is why we will keep coming back because you rock our world!
Now for a bit of hibernation action and then to start planning the festivities for next year. No more post festival depression it’s more like post festival excitement!
If you need to relive the memory of the moo 2013 do yourself a favour and watch this:

Over the past few years, Groovin’ The Moo has slowly climbed its way up the ladder of most adored Aussie music events. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more laidback and fun atmosphere as the one created by this festival gem.
A massive high 5 needs to be given to the organisers of GTM. Besides the fact that it is so smoothly ran (no waiting lines anywhere!), it is just such a fantastic concept that gives regional cities across the country the chance to experience some of the best local and international music that they may not otherwise have access to.
