Groovin’ the Moo returns to Bunbury for another year, showcasing a variety of international and local talent. Major acts include everyones favourite girl-next-door crush, DJ sensation Alison Wonderland, Sydney electronic trip hop duo Boo Seeka, Brisbane punk duo DZ Deathrays, the mysterious, anonymous electronic dance producer Golden Features, dance duo Client Liaison, electronica trio SAFIA, indie rockers British India, indie folk rockers Boy and Bear and Triple J Hottest 100 winners The Rubens.
This years festival has a distinct American feel to it, with several international acts making the long trip over from the states. Fresh from their tour of Canada, self-professed ‘schizoid-pop’ duo Twenty One Pilots will be joined by Rappers Danny Brown and Vic Mensa, dream pop duo MS MR, electronic duo ODESZA, electronic rock duo Ratatat and rockers Mutemath.
Local acts include hip hop artist Drapht, electropop duo GRRL PAL and futuristic electronic duo TIME PILOT. As well as Triple J unearthed winners, home-grown Bunbury metalcore rockers Longshore and young indie rock duo Mosquito Coast. Whilst Mootown will be returning to yet again showcase the impressive abundance of awesome West Australian DJ’s and producers.
At first glance, casual music listeners could be forgiven for thinking that the 2016 GTM line-up appeared to be lacking in some of the more popular, well known household names. But the sheer depth of amoozing (sorry) talent and enthralling festival atmosphere will ensure that Groovin’ the Moo 2016 will once again be an unforgettable experience. And when tickets only cost just over one green note, you’d be crazy not to copy and paste THIS into your browser.
Despite all the wild excitement, the trio appeared the perfect combination of vibrant, as well as calm and collected. The boys had done this countless times before, but this didn’t detract from their ability to send tremors and impart some sweet magnetic energy.

Ahead of their Splendour sideshows with Two Door Cinema Club, and an impending third studio album, we had a chat to Sean Caskey from Last Dinosaurs about how maturity is affecting their music, making fine wooden furniture and what music they have and do draw inspiration from.
In Part 2 of our Revelation Film Festival roundup, we review documentaries "Working In Protest" and "You've Never Had It: An Evening with Charles Buckowski"

But is it any good? (Spoiler: it's pretty damn good)
