Groovin the Moo beef up their lineup with a bunch of ‘Fresh Produce’ names

Telenova

GTM has added a full crate of Fresh Produce names to Maitland, Canberra and Bendigo, with over 40 more artists set to hit the stages in April.

Just when you think Groovin The Moo can’t get any bigger. Capping off the mammoth lineup that they’re taking to three beloved regions around Australia this April, they’ve gone and added 40 acts across the country to their Fresh Produce stage.

Returning to Maitland, Canberra and Bendigo, the all-ages festival will be taking place for the first time since 2019, and as usual, they are giving a bunch of emerging artists a platform to share their music with the masses.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Bands added to the Bendigo incarnation include Mulalo, Queen P and Telenova, alongside artists announced for The Plot stage being Cliterally, Darby, Drechsler, Falla, Jemima, Mason Flint, Senor Senor, Third Rail Studio Presents, Tonky, Wil Barrett and Xiren Collective.

A triple j Unearthed artist for each show will also be announced in the coming weeks.

These artists all join a slew of previously announced festival favourites including Aussie legends Hilltop Hoods, Peking Duk, Middle Kids, Alice Ivy, Shouse, Hockey Dad, Jesswar, Polaris and many more, and international guests include Wolf Alice, BROODS, Thomas Headon, Snakehips, Riton and Chaii. Delivering something for every kind of punter, the festival also includes Spiderbait, new favourites like Sycco, Hope D, HP Boyz and JK-47, Eurovision conquerer Montaigne, Remix maestros Mashd N Kutcher and Redhook who will provide the riffs.
