With Groovin the Moo arriving in Adelaide for another year, a whole new bunch of brilliant artists will be filling the stages of Wayville Showgrounds come Friday, April 27.
As with every year, the abundance of talent means that it can be difficult working out a schedule to ensure you gain maximum performance time from your fave artists, so we have come up with some of our favourite acts that you don’t want to miss this Friday.
11:30AM: YOUNG OFFENDERS
Homegrown talent Young Offenders will be bringing some serious indie-punk vibes to the Triple J stage tomorrow. Start the day off right as vocalist Kyle Landman, bassist Anthony Katern and drummer Leigh Shags musically express their unique perspectives on modern day lifestyles, as well as political and social concerns. With new music on the way, these boys are sure to be a real crowd pleaser.
Known for their carefree surf rock tunes, SKEGSS are the boys who know how to bring the party. Having produced some of the messiest and wildest of gigs to sell-crowds all over the world, GTM just wouldn’t be complete without the beer drinking, good times-loving surf coast band. With popular hits including ‘L.S.D’, ‘Eat It’, ‘Spring Has Sprung’ and ‘Got On My Skateboard,’ the GTM party will be in full swing once you see these guys live.
2:20PM: ALEX LAHEY
Rising star Alex Lahey is not one to be missed, with the Melbourne-based performer returning to GTM for a second year after featuring in their 2017 ‘Fresh Produce’ lineup. With her catchy indie-rock songs including ‘Every Day’s The Weekend’ and ‘I Love You Like a Brother’, it’s no surprise that Lahey’s debut album was one of the most well received for 2017. Her unique musical approach to the universal themes portrayed in her albums will make her a real crowd favourite this year!
4.20pm: TKAY MAIDZA
Do we really need to explain this one? Tkay has always been one of our favourites and she’s been doing Adelaide huge favours by reppin’ our hometown all over the world. Her magnetic tunes – including her latest collab with producer Basenji – are hard to get out of your head and makes for the perfect set to give you that late afternoon boost to keep you going for the rest of the day.
7:55PM: PAUL KELLY
Australian music icon Paul Kelly proves that you don’t have to be young to still be groovy. With 21 studio albums and a career spanning over 30 years, Kelly will be playing his feel-good hits from the 80s for a little nostalgia as well as his 2017 album Life Is Fine, which has been labelled one of his strongest and most evocative. The perfect way to mellow out the party while hearing hits across the decades.
9:40PM FLIGHT FACILITIES
To wrap up the festivities after what is bound to be a chaotic day of darting between stages to catch your – and our -fave performers, Flight Facilities, is the perfect way to end your GTM experience. After the surprise release of their debut album Down to Earth in 2014, the electronic duo has only gotten bigger and better. Bring new music to GTM this year; their performance will be worth dragging your exhausted bodies over to the Triple J stage to watch one final perfect act.
