After the Bendigo date of Groovin The Moo 2013 sold out in less than 48 hours, it’s just been announced that the Maitland leg of  of the festival is now fresh outta tickets as well with punters scrambling for tickets to the regional music festival.

Groovin The Moo officially announced their lineup a few weeks ago, leaking a day earlier than anticipated, after indie wonder twins Tegan & Sara and left-field veterans They Might Be Giants let slip that they were planning on touring our shores in April/May.

Both were included on the official lineup announcement l, including the return of hardcore act The Bronx, snappy Brits The Kooks, and cathartic Scottish outfit Frightened Rabbit. Also on the list of international headliners is UK performer/producer Example, indie-punk duo Matt & Kim, and electronic adventurers Yacht.

Locally, there’s plenty to enjoy too, with the world-beating likes of Tame Impala, The Temper Trap, and Flume, the inventive guitar rock of Last Dinosaurs and Hungry Kids of Hungary, Melbourne sextet Alpine, hardcore heroes The Amity Affliction, and that sure-fire of festival players, Regurgitator. Hip hop heads will also be sated by the appearance of Pez, Seth Sentry, Urthboy, and Tuka with Ellesquire.

There’s also a DJ set from DZ Deathrays (!), Alison Wonderland behind the decks, Midnight Juggernauts’ stomping brand of electro, Shockone’s dangerous dubstep, and Yolanda Be Cool to enjoy on the regional touring festival’s impressive bill.

If you were banking on the Bendigo or Maitland tickets, never fear, as a number of the headlining acs have already announced sideshows, including Tegan & SaraThe BronxThey Might Be GiantsMatt & Kim, and The Kooks .

With 26 stellar acts and ticket prices lower than $100, it’s no wonder the festival is selling out faster than most.

Stephen Halpin of Cattleyard Promotions said today,“Thanks Maitland! We are so grateful for all your support over the years. Feels that this year will be something special. Apologies to those who missed out, but we have a limited capacity and just can’t fit anyone else into the showground!”

One thing’s for sure, punters hoping to make it to the, Canberra, Townsville, or Bunbury dates better get in quick. Tickets to lineups this good don’t last long.
