Folks, it’s that time of year, where we begin the countdown to Groovin’ The Moo once again – and this time the big party has found itself a new home in the nation’s capital.

Grab your brand-spankin’ new 2019 diary and your favourite pen, dig out your best farm boots, and get ready to alert the group chat, because you’re gunna want to sync some time off over April and May to get to the big boogie in the back paddock.

If you missed all that at L’hôtel de Moo, all the venues and dates are below. And yep, Canberra‘s moved from the meadows of UC over to Exhibition Park.

As always, the cattle station is open for presales on November 30 from 8am on Moshtix before Christmas, but this year it’ll be the only time you can cop presale tickies before the general sale goes up.

The lineup is yet to be announced, but considering the 2018 tour brought us sets from Baker BoyDean LewisMallratCosmos MidnightFlight FacitiesConfidence Man, and a whole swathe more, I’m sure 2019 is going to be just as much of a party.

If you need a little reminder of how much fun it is to escape the city to go to a big rager when the air is getting crisp and sometimes you gotta dance to keep yourself warm (especially in Canberra, oof), check out the highlights from Groovin’ The Moo 2018 below and get hyped for 2019.
