Mooove over all other music because holy cow, Groovin The Moo’s lineup is udderly fantastic (yes, I did it, I made all those cow puns). Of the 24 or so acts currently named on the line up, there isn’t a single artist who is NOT worth taking time out of your day to see. But if you really need five reasons to grab your ticket to the paddock then I suggest these artists as five pretty good reasons to go.

Charli XCX

Kicking butts and taking names is just what Charli XCX does best, putting on a high octane, energetic live show that matches her larger then life punk personality. This will be her first return to Australia since her 2012 stint on the ParkLife Festival line-up and the first time headlining her own show in Australia, so you can expect she’ll be eager to put on a great show. Talking about her live shows to USA Today she said; “‘I just want to give them an hour of sweating and totally losing their minds, no matter what’s going on that day or what you’re worried about.”

Check out the amazing Miss XCX performing her track Break The Rules and Boom Clap  below from the new album Sucker.

San Cisco

San Cisco are Aussie Indie-Pop royalty. Their debut self-titled album gave us hits like Beach, Fred Astaire and No Friends and their amazing cover of Daft Punk’s Get Lucky made it into the 2014 Triple J Hottest 100. San Cisco have been out of sight for the past six months working on their sophomore release Gracetown, which is already killing us with the summery beach single Run. With their new album out on March 6, they’ll be boasting a setlist full of brand new material for all you mooo-vers and shakers.

Check out the video for San Cisco’s track Run and get pumped for the paddock.

Tkay Maidza

Get your boots on cause femcee bad-ass Tkay Maidza is damn well going to have you stomping your feet like a Brontosaurus in the mosh. Still an emerging artist, Maidza is already breaking down doors and getting all up in our faces with her catchy, free flowing rhymes. She’s just unleashed her new single M.O.B. aka Money Over Bitches and it’ll have you screaming for more. Maidza stunned everyone at her appearance at Laneway, so you can bet your bottom dollar that she’ll be brining the fierce to GTM.

Check out M.O.B. below and lose your mind.


New Zealand acts really shone throughout 2014, and one of those acts was brother and sister duo Broods. Working with Joel Little (Lorde’s main man) the duo’s album Evergreenwas one of my personal highlights of the year. Tracks like Mother & Father, L.A.F and my all-time fave Everytime command your attention from the start to finish.

Meg Mac

There’s something special about Meg Mac.  She had Australian audiences captivated even before the release of her first EP, MEGMAC . It’s been a whirlwind few months for this young artist with tracks Roll Up Your Sleeves and Grandma’s Hands bursting through the airwaves infecting all with her über cool rustic charm. If you haven’t had a chance to see her live, then GTM is your perfect opportunity to witness the pure unchallengable greatness that is Meg Mac.

Give your ears a treat and listen to Roll Up Your Sleeves below.

So, there.  I’ve given you some amazing reasons to grab up a ticket and make the trek out to the GTM paddocks. If I haven’t convinced you, then I don’t really know what will!
