It’s that time of year again – time to start introducing you to the who’s who of Groovin The Moo‘s stellar lineup to see why you should jump on tickets before they sell out (which you can do right here).
The first five Groovin The Moo acts for 2020 (in alphabetical order) are:
You might know rapper, singer, songwriter and producer AJ Tracey as Looney or Loonz, because they have also been his stage names since 2011. Hailing from the UK, Tracey was named by The Guardian in 2016 as “one of the best new acts to catch at festivals.” His first mainstream release since breaking from the Soundcloud game was his EP Secure The Bag! in 2017, which debuted in the UK Albums Chart at number 13. His self-titled debut album was only released last year, but it debuted at number three and featured his highest-rating single to date, ‘Ladbroke Grove.’
Why should you catch his set: The Guardian said so.

“Catch me outside, how about that?” Yep, Bhad Bhabie is none other than Danielle Bregoli, the controversial teen from Dr. Phil a few years ago. Bregoli turned her overnight internet fame into a decent career for herself, becoming the youngest female rapper to ever appear on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart with her debut single ‘These Heaux.’ She then signed a deal with Atlantic Records, launched a reality show, a makeup brand, tours and of course a music career. Not bhad for someone just turning 17.
Why you should catch her set: It could go viral.
Watch: Bhad Bhabie – Get Like Me
You know that irritating viral dance ‘The Git Up‘ Challenge that everyone was posting their video of last year? You can thank Blanco Brown for the ear worm accompanying that. The American singer, songwriter and record producer has also worked with Chris Brown and Pitbill, but his own debut single has over 167 million streams on Spotify. He does have a whole album out, Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs, which reached number 10 on the ARIA Charts.
Why you should catch his set: See how many people do The Git Up Challenge at once.
Watch: Blanco Brown – The Git Up
The Cat Empire
If you don’t know Felix, Harry and their merry band of ska/Latin/reggae/funk/fusion men by now, you’ve clearly been living under a rock. The Cat Empire have been around for 20 years or so, touring Australia and the world relentlessly and releasing eight studio albums in the process.
Why you should catch their set: Good beats, good vibes, and the band is so big one of them might fall off the stage.
Watch: The Cat Empire – Brighter Than Gold (Live At The Roundhouse 2018)
Channel Tres must love Australia, because this will be his third consecutive year touring here. And this time, he’s doing it with the GTM crew. The producer, musician and DJ from Compton, LA narrowly avoided the EDM scene and now produces music with a mixed aesthetic which pays homage to rap, RnB and the midwest.
Why you should catch his set: This should be a good one to get the day bumping.
