The beloved regional festival has cancelled, falling short on ticket sales.

It’s a sad day for music lovers as the highly anticipated Groovin the Moo 2024 tour announces its cancellation. The festival organisers have revealed that the plug is being pulled due to insufficient ticket sales, leaving many disappointed fans in its wake.

“We are extremely disappointed to announce that the Groovin the Moo 2024 tour has been forced to cancel. Ticket sales have not been sufficient to deliver a regional festival of this kind,” a festival statement shared.

All tickets will be refunded automatically. It’s a bitter pill to swallow for those who were eagerly anticipating the event.

In the statement, organisers expressed their gratitude to everyone who supported the festival, holding out hope for a potential return in the future. However, at this stage, there will be no further comments from the Groovin the Moo team.

“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.”

It’s a stark contrast to the initial excitement surrounding the festival’s announcement, with a stacked lineup that promised to deliver udder mayhem. From Alison Wonderland to GZA from Wu-Tang Clan and Melanie C from the Spice Girls, the roster was brimming with talent that had fans buzzing with anticipation.

But despite the star-studded lineup, it seems ticket sales couldn’t keep pace with expectations, ultimately leading to the festival’s cancellation. It’s a tough blow for the organisers and a disappointment for music fans across the region.

For now, it’s a waiting game as fans come to terms with the news and organisers regroup to assess the future of Groovin the Moo. Until then, it’s back to the drawing board for those who were counting down the days until the festival.

Let’s hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Groovin the Moo, and that it’ll make a triumphant return to regional communities in the future.
