De La Soul, Ratatat and Okkervil River return to Australia as part of Groovin The Moo 09
De La Soul - hard as fuck.
Groovin The Moo (aka 'That Festival In The Middle Of Nowhere') is BACK in 2009, bigger, fatter and more 'not in the major cities' than EVER before.
The full line-up (thus far)...
- Okkervil River
- The Drones
- The Grates
- De La Soul
- Architecture in Helsinki
- The Living End
- Hilltop Hoods
- Muscles (DJ set)
- Little Birdy
- Van She
- Tame Impala
- Miami Horror
- The Twelves
- Hercules in NY
- Art vs. Science
YESSSS... Living End!!!!!! Score!!!
Also, Hilltop Hoods are back. Which means this whole second-rate Oz hip-hop thing can end, right?
Muscles? Didn't he retire?
Questions, sarcasm and nitpicking aside, that is a moderately exciting line-up.
This year the festival will hit up three different 'regional hotspots'.
Saturday, May 2: Lou Litster Park, Townsville
Saturday, May 9: Maitland Showground, Maitland
Saturday, May 16: Bendigo's Prince of Wale's Showground, Bendigo
Very nice to see that there is plenty of room for sideshows all around those dates.
Tickets officially go on sale Monday, February 16. If you are a 'friend' of Groovin The Moos via MySpace (it still exists? ha!) then you will get a super special presale thingo on Wednesday, February 11. Tickets will set you back around $85 (+ bf).
