Following the recent announcements of cancellations to potentially provide less exposure from COVID-19, Groovin the Moo has been cancelled all across the country for 2020.
Despite the line-up announcement and having almost less than a month to go to kick off Adelaide, the organisers have not found a way to reschedule the festival based on the uncertainty of the 500 people ban, as well as the logistics involved with coordinating six venues across six states and territories to aline with each other, especially with the schedules of the National and International artists in mind.
If you had purchased a ticket for this year’s festival, you have the option to either hold onto the ticket for 2021 (more info below) or ask for a full refund. If you are wanting to go with the second option, the organisers have suggested putting the money towards those that have been affected by the December/ January bushfires or a local business that will be affected by low patronage in the upcoming weeks.
“Eat a nice meal, stay in a caravan park, hire a canoe, buy a souvenir fridge magnet – these communities are struggling and will be grateful for whatever help they can get. We also encourage you to support the music industry by buying some band merch, or seeing how you can help through organisations like I Lost My Gig and Support Act.”
As for the future of Groovin the Moo in Adelaide, a date has been locked in for 2021, which will be held on Friday the 23rd of April at the Adelaide Showgrounds.
