A mere 48 hours after going on sale, the Bendigo leg of Groovin’ The Moo 2013 has completely sold out with punters scrambling for tickets to the regional music festival.
After putting out two warnings that ticket sales for the regional Victoria location were low on their Facebook yesterday, the announcement came from the festival this morning.
Groovin The Moo officially announced their lineup last week, 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 last week, 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 tickets, never fear, as a number of the headlining acs have already announced sideshows, including Tegan & Sara, The Bronx, They Might Be Giants, Matt & 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. No word yet on whether or not a second date will be announced for Bendigo.
One thing’s for sure though, punters hoping to make it to the Maitland, Canberra, Townsville, or Bunbury dates better get in quick. Tickets to lineups this good don’t last long.
