Cattleyard Promotions has confirmed that Groovin the Moo will not be going ahead in 2021. With the current restrictions in place and the uncertainty around when they will end, the logistics of touring the country to deliver the event in the way that patrons have grown familiar was not possible.
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”
Whilst GTM may not be able to proceed this year, the Cattleyard team have been developing a brand new regional concert, Fresh Produce, which will sprout up across the country over eight weekends this Spring.Partially funded by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Government initiative, Fresh Produce is a limited capacity show that has been purposefully created to exist within the ever-changing environment.
Fresh Produce will sew seeds in familiar locations, supporting the six GTM regions of Townsville QLD, Bunbury WA, Maitland NSW, Canberra ACT, Bendigo VIC and Wayville SA, as well as cropping up in two new locations, Toowoomba QLD and Glenorchy TAS.
Fresh Produce will focus exclusively on the freshest talent, featuring juicy handfuls of artists that represent the spread of exceptional, diverse and inspiring music in Australia.
