With great sadness, Cattleyard Promotions has confirmed that it is not possible for Groovin the Moo (GTM) to return in 2021. With the current restrictions in place and the uncertainty around when they will end, there are too many factors that prevent GTM from touring the country to deliver the event in the way that patrons have grown familiar with, and fond of, over the years.
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.
The event will see Cattleyard Promotions doing what they enjoy most – going back to grassroots by creating an inclusive, accessible and hospitable live music concert, whilst showcasing the best of what’s on offer from each region.
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.
With a single stage outdoor set up, Fresh Produce has the ability to be seated and fit within the relevant state requirements at the time, ensuring everyone enjoys the show in a safe environment.
Steve Halpin said;
“Our team is very excited to be developing a new show that highlights the ripest pickings from multiple regions around the country. We can’t wait to feature all things fresh and support local communities in our familiar stomping grounds and our two new regional spots.”
Stay tuned for more Fresh Produce information including line up and ticketing details, coming your way soon!
