Groovin The Moo cancels regional festivals due to poor ticket sales


Groovin The Moo has cancelled this year’s regional tour just two months out before its first event in South Australia citing poor ticket sales.

It is the latest in a string of music festivals that have cancelled citing difficult economic conditions hampering ticket sales combined with rising costs.

“We are extremely disappointed to announce that the Groovin the Moo 2024 tour has been forced to cancel,” the festival said.

“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 festival was set to launch in late April and run through until mid-May in venues across South Australia, the ACT, Victoria, NSW and Queensland.

The only time the festival cancelled previously in its 19-year history was during the pandemic in 2020 and 2021.
