I feel a special kind of kinship with the bookers over at Groovin The Moo: if I were to assemble a line-up of incredible local talent, I too would top it all off with Darude.
There’s not much more to say about the festival’s 2020 lineup, really. It’s rock solid, featuring 2019 Triple J Hottest 100 heroes Mallrat, Tones and I, Slowly Slowly, and 2017 juggernauts Gang of Youths, plus perennial killers The Veronicas.
WAAX is there if you want to thrash about a bit. Not your vibe? AJ Tracey and YBN Cordae are playing, too. If all else fails, say hello, again, to The Cat Empire. Peep the full lineup below, and try telling me that isn’t a pretty decent aggregation of young Australian listening habits:
The Cat Empire
Gang Of Youths
Tones and I
