Featuring hordes of homegrown favourites plus a dozen international acts, Groovin the Moo 2020 will visit six regions around the country this April-May.

It could the biggest lineup yet for Groovin the Moo, which is now in its 16th year. Gang of Youths will make their return to the Australian touring circuit for the occasion, with a new album scheduled for 2020. Perennial festival darlings The Cat Empire and The Veronicas will switch on the nostalgia fountain, along with hip hop originals The Sugarhill Gang – yep, the creators of ‘Rapper’s Delight’.

But GTM’s true specialty is contemporary triple j-endorsed artists, and there are a heck of a lot of them this year. Tones and I and Mallrat will both appear, fresh off their respective Hottest 100 top tens. Fellow entrants into this year’s countdown include Slowly Slowly, E^ST, Hayden James, Dope Lemon and San Cisco. Ruby Fields, Waax, Kira Puru and Manu Crooks round out the Australian contingent.

The international names on this year’s lineup are many and varied. GTM is turning the clock back with recently reunited Britpop band Supergrass and ‘Sandstorm’ DJ Darude. Kelis is also coming over for the event, having just celebrated 20 years of her debut album Kaleidoscope.
