Top Three Acts at Groovin’ The Moo 2018

We headed along to Groovin’ The Moo in Bendigo to see some of the world’s best acts on a crisp May day.

Starting the day catching Melbourne local Didirri and ending the night catching one of Australia’s best Ball Park Music. There was no doubt that the crowd loved the diversity of the line-up from Ocean Alley to The Amity Affliction and Lady Leshurr to Paul Kelly. All of our needs were met musically which makes Groovin’ The Moo one of the country’s best festivals.

Out of the vibrant line-up we managed to pick our top three favourites.

Mallrat

Kicking off with one of the opening spots of the festival Mallrat aka Grace Shaw made sure everyone was pumped about the day ahead. Dancing around the stage in her super charming enthusiastic way, she defiantly achieved that. The teenager giving us some of her banging tunes like Better and Uninvited that had everyone singing along. By the size of the crowd that she achieved you would think she would have grabbed a spot later on the schedule.

Confidence Man

Confidence Man, what a sight to see. You didn’t know where and when to look when the Australian pair entered the stage. Epic lighting and interactive costumes were just the beginning, then you have oh so perfect dance moves that make you want to join in. And if you haven’t seen them live, do yourself a favour and check these two out, you won’t regret it. It was more of an experience than a performance. And as I saw a girl say in the crowd: “What the F*ck?”, I think that explains it all.

Skegss

Skegss don’t mess around. Their charging tracks were just what the doctor orders for the Groovin’ The Moo crowd in Bendigo on Saturday. Aussie rock at its best, they had the crowd wrapped around their finger by making them all sit down then unleashing into a synchronised mosh during the end of their set. They even brought their manager out on stage to play a bit of guitar, cause why the bloody hell not? Spring Has Sprung and LSD were crowd favourites as the buzzing audience danced and sang along. We could of all watch them play for a couple of more hours if we had the choice but what they delivered was a pleasure to watch.
