Groovin the Moo, a touring music festival in Australia, has cancelled this year’s edition due to poor ticket sales.

In a statement, organisers said: “We are extremely disappointed to announce that the Groovin the Moo 2024 tour has been forced to cancel.

“Ticket sales have not been sufficient to deliver a regional festival of this kind. All tickets will be refunded automatically. Thank you to everybody who has supported the festival. We hope to be able to bring Groovin the Moo back to regional communities in the future.”

The event was established in 2005 by Cattleyard Promotions, and visited locations outside of the east coast’s big three cities – Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

This year’s edition was due to tour Adelaide’s Wayville suburb, Canberra and Bendigo in April, as well as Newcastle, Sunshine Coast and Bunbury, Western Australia in May.

Groovin the Moo’s 2024 line-up was set to consist of Alison Wonderland, DMA’s, Jet, Armani White, GZA and more.

The event was originally supported by Ticketmaster-affiliated ticketing provider Moshtix, streaming platform Spotify and youth broadcaster Triple J.

Organisers cancelled the event just eight days or so after tickets were placed on sale.
