2020 was a disastrous year for live events and festivals, so its little wonder that the entertainment scene is celebrating news of a brand new festival.
Cattleyard Productions, the team responsible for the much-loved Groovin the Moo Festival, which has brought local and international music acts to regional areas of Australia for 16 years, have something new in the works.
The brand new festival, named Fresh Produce, has been slated for 2021 with the help of $1.2 million in Federal Government funding, which was part of the $60m RISE fund.
Fresh Produce has been earmarked for Spring, following the cancellation of the 2020 Groovin The Moo and its incredible line up, which was to feature Gang of Youths, Tones And I, Mallrat, Ruby Fields, San Cisco, Hayden James, WAAX, Kira Puru, Manu Crook$, Slowly Slowly and The Veronicas.
“Our team is really excited and feeling very
fortunate to be building another festival that has its home across multiple
regions around Australia,” said Steve Halpin from Cattleyard Promotions in
“Cattleyard extends our sincere thanks to RISE and appreciate the opportunity we have been given to develop this new festival. We look forward to sharing news about Fresh Produce in 2021.”
Hopefully this means some of the acts which didn’t get to perform, will be rerouted into the new festival, but that’s all yet to be revealed.
