GTM2020 Refunds – Everything You Need To Know
Cattleyard Promotions is sad to announce Groovin the Moo won’t be returning to tour around our beloved farmyard in 2021. Because of the current restrictions, the uncertainty of when they’ll be eased and the amount of time needed to plan GTM, it makes it impossible to go ahead with this tour in the way that our famooly all know and love.
A huge thank you to all our Moo Crew who held onto their Groovin the Moo 2020 ticket, you guys are absolutely remarcowble and it’s helped the team through 2021, and it’s been really appreciated!
We’re working towards 2022 going ahead and will do everything we can to make this happen (trust us, we want to put on a festival just as much as you want to go to one)!
Your 2020 tickets are automatically valid for 2022 and you do not need to do anything further if you wish to come along! 🎉💃

Power Chords with Girls Rock! Canberra
We spoke with Chiara to learn more about how she’s creating a moovement for change for women and gender diverse people in music! Have a peep at the interview!
Can you tell me a bit about your journey with music and how you came to connect with Girls Rock!?
I grew up in Canberra playing music and guitar, but often found it hard to find people to play with. I had heard about these Girls Rock! camps as a teenager but didn’t really think too hard on them until I finished my undergrad. I was 21 and burnt out having studied realist theory of changing the world around you, but not being able to apply it. Suddenly these Girls Rock! Camps seemed like a cool way of creating a world where girls voices were encouraged and seen. A space without cis men, which is especially rare in music.
After uni I saved up some money and travelled to Portland for my first Girls Rock! camp as a volunteer. I absolutely loved it and was inspired by all of these young women who were so fearless and cool. After my third camp in Portland, and visiting the camps in Austin and the Bay Area (California) I decided I wanted to start a Girls Rock! camp in Canberra.
Are the camps the same in each place?
Well, the structure of the programs and their values are the same. Young people form a band on the Monday and have written a song by the end of the week. I love it because you don’t have to have music experience and you can write whatever you want. There is complete freedom of expression. For a lot of the kids it’s their first time playing an instrument or with other people, so to create something from scratch themselves brings a real sense of pride and achievement.
The Girls Rock! camp in Portland has been going for the longest at 10 years and a lot of the mentors at the camp used to be campers themselves, so it’s awesome to see that intergenerational exchange. You really get a sense of the camp’s personality.
Do you see Canberra forming its own flavour?
Boston is probably closest to Canberra as it was a bit smaller and a lot less punk than Portland, so it was cool to see the different models the camp could take. Canberra kids can be a bit quiet – it’s a small art scene, but very tight knit and more multidisciplinary within the arts.
Once you’d made the decision to bring Girls Rock! to Canberra how did you go about it?
I was just a very stubborn 24 year old. I decided, “I’m gonna do it!” and from there I talked to everybody I could. People from the American camps put me in touch with Aussies who helped spread the word or volunteered themselves as mentors. I found a venue called Ainsley and Gorman Art Centre where we now run our camps and they were incredibly supportive. This will be our 5th year!
Do you see changes in the people that participate?
Totally, and we have an intern program for the people who have participated in the past who want to come back to take on a leadership role. They learn how to be a mentor, how to assemble gear, how to uplift others. And then even just from the Monday to the Friday, you get to watch these kids come out of their shells. It’s simple things like talking more, not being afraid to perform and be vulnerable. You can physically see the changes.
Do you think that Girls Rock! Creates a space for inspiration within the community?
We’ve a range of amazing role models who the kids love. Occasionally we’ll have mentors with children too, so we’ll have little kids in the room or we’ll set up an onsite day care – we try to keep it as accessible as possible. And it’s nice because when men very occasionally come into the space it’s in a caring role.
Do you see any kids that now remind you of yourself back when you started?
There’s definitely a few. It can be quite a process of closure when you see a kid that reminds you of your teenage self. It can be very emotional. You see one and think, ‘Oh, you have the same taste as I had.’ or had the same shyness and you can relate. And it’s oddly non-linear, because they’re looking at you thinking “Oh, this is what I could be when I’m older.”
How did you go about collaborating with Groovin the Moo?
Groovin the Moo reached out to ask if we would come on as a community partner. We coordinate work experience opportunities for our campers over 16 to learn about the industry side of music and festivals. We had such a great day last year and the girls were over the moon to help out backstage. They’ve also helped us put on concerts and we’ve programmed a bunch of shows with many bands that have also been involved in the camps. It’s been an amazing team up, especially because their values matched so closely to ours, especially their focus on community.
What would you say to those girls who are looking to get involved?
Do it! You can get in touch via email or just head to our website www.girlsrock.com.au

Record Store Day!
Today is Record Store Day! An event that was created in 2007 to celebrate the unique culture of independently owned record stores. If you own a vinyl record player, love moosic, this is the day for you.
Listening to music through vinyls is a wholesome experience filled with nostalgia and a new appreciation for the quality of sound. But let’s not forget how magical the experience of purchasing a record can be, you can get lost for hours in store flipping through records, you may choose to take a gamble on a record based on the social exchange you had with the store owner or the udderly sweet design. Moments that have been taken away through the digital era and we 100% recommend giving it a go if you haven’t already.
We’re choosing to celebrate this day by supporting our Aussie GTM artists and acknowledging some of the local stores in our Regions. See below to find a store near you!
