Canberra, your Commoonity Program is here!

At the heart of Groovin the Moo’s (GTM) festival philosophy is the desire to showcase and support communities and regions that are often those less travelled. GTM’s Community Program has been developing organically each year and we’re thrilled to announce what we’ve got in store for Canberra in 2019.


Battle of the Bands at Black Mountain School

GTM will be supporting the annual Battle of the Bands competition at Black Mountain School where local Canberra bands come on board and perform for the students. Our very own event assistant, Tamara, will be the judge and the winning band will win tickets to GTM. Students will also take part in the work experience program, handing out our festival essentials guides at the front gate.


The legends at HEAPS GAY started a few years ago as a series of parties for LGBTIQ+ kids and their friends and has since become a regular party starter in the Sydney scene for anyone who wants to have fun and support good causes. They’ll bring the Milk Bar back to Canberra again to offer some incredibly good vibes and party times, with HEAPS GAY DJ’s and local favourite Squeef spinning the tunes.

Heaps Gay Décor Crew

Thunderbolts are a crew of young people who have identified as being LGBTQI+ and have felt disengaged from their local community. They will be working under the creative direction of Kat Dopper (founder of HEAPS GAY) and Tamsin Kemp (local artist and teacher) to create props and decorate the Milk Bar.

Local Artist Showcases

GTM is proud to showcase emerging local up and coming artists such as Sophie who will be exhibiting her cheeky feminist art at the Canberra event. Musonga Mbogo first approached GTM in 2015 and has been involved at a bigger and better capacity each year. Visually, he looks to emulate the emotions which are often associated with listening to music and at just 20 years of age, he’s proving to be an artist to watch.

Local Fundraisers and Business Involvement

Fundraising opportunities have been allocated to UC Hockey Club who will manage the carpark.

Powder Pen

Returning in 2019, GTM’s Powder Pen will keep you looking festival fresh! For a small donation, you can get a quick hair and make-up “zjoosh” thanks to Cindy Rue. A portion of proceeds from the Powder Pen will go back to the charity of their choice, ACT Rescue and Foster who rescue dogs from euthanasia and foster them in temporary homes until they find their fur-ever home.

Work Experience with Girls Rock!

GTM is very excited to have Girls Rock! participants take part in the work experience program this year. Girls Rock! is a national network of girls rock camps designed to empower girls, trans and non-binary youth. Through a combined love for music, girls are taught leadership skills and provided with pathways towards further education in the music and creative industries.
