They had only announced one on sale time with the lineup - guess they're expecting a rush due to the good reaction.

Picking between Punk and Jericho is just too hard a task for me. I love them both so, so much.

DinkiDIDude said on the 10th Feb, 2012



Yeah going to be a totally split (smarc) crowd at the ppv's I reckon, just hope they dont can the obvious blockbuster wm match this fued looks like its leading to out of fear it might take away from the Rock - Cena showdown..........ftr = Jericho to take back his throne

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 12th Feb, 2012

It's going to make for one hell of a title match at WrestleMania. I reckon Sheamus will go for Bryan/whoever is WHC.

I back Punk all the way, but have no qualms in marking out for Jericho.

BTW, Dinki - check out my podcast!

I understand your buzz %100, I remember watching the Regal vs Bryan match in Liverpool and was just fascinated by the whole new school ROH vs Traditional old school mat style , seeing that kind of match co headlining wrestlemania and featurning two guys that are in my top ten of all time and both in their prime (career wise) is just unbelievable.

byclare said on the 14th Feb, 2012

i'm quite excited for maccabees, even though they did kinda let slip they'd be doing gtm a while ago. it's nice to have it set in stone. i think it's a good little lineup for the type/price/size of festival gtm has become.

went to bendigo last year - i thought that crowd was fairly reasonable.. but i have since moved to brisbane so not sure whether to return there or not. figured reading through these comments might help me decide.. but most of this thread is completely ridiculous.. so if anyone has any recommendations. or should i just go back to bendigo?

I recommend you look at the lineup, and decide whether you like enough of the bands to make it worth the trip all the way to bendigo, and forget whether the crowd is going to be good or not.

Groovin the Moo more of a success than BDO 12 and Splendour 11

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 17th Feb, 2012

Selling out a 15k capacity festival definitely makes it more successful than not selling out a 50k+ capacity festival.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 17th Feb, 2012

So...Public Enemy sideshows?

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 17th Feb, 2012

Ah but they met their target, splendour aimed for too much so yes I stand by my comment. Also groovin are likely to sell out another 1 or 2 festivals & get close with a few more.

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 17th Feb, 2012



i'm sure the promoters of BDO and Splendour have much hotter wives and snort far better coke than GTM's. so at the end of the day BDO and Splendour still win.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 17th Feb, 2012



You really just don't get simple things do you.

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 17th Feb, 2012

Oh no I upset the splendour loving fl crew. Yes I agree splendour is far superior over a longer period of time, clearly I was pointing out 2011 and that's it. Do you guys have a real argument or are you just gonna say nah your an idiot nah I don't like you?

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 17th Feb, 2012

I've never been to Splendour.

BDO GC sold 40k tix, which is 15k short of selling out, which is coincidentally how much Groovin has sold total. And that's just one of the BDO's.

The point is your point is stupid and incorrect. As are you. Any more questions?

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 17th Feb, 2012

Tyler jesus man your a fuckwit. Iv been to splendour a few times it's a great festival, Iv been to BDO a few times it can be a great festival, once again I was saying they met their targets I didn't say the other festivals are no good just that they missed their targets unlike groovin the moo which has had a great year, since they have only been on sale a few days. You are the fool and I don't like you, p.s what makes you so clever that your the authority on intelligence? You own a computer congrats man

my name is anna de jong i am a phd candidate from the university of wollongong - researching australian festivals. i am trying to get in contact with individuals who are planning to attend groovin the moo this year - before the event occurs. if you have a gtm ticket and are interested in participatory research head to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/gtm2012 or http://annadejong.wordpress.com/ to find out more. cheers :)

Your survey would probably garner more interest if you got the name of the festival right.

It isn't called Groove in the Moo.

Not to be THAT GUY, but since you're writing a PHD, you should probably know...

Noone is planning to attend the event before it occurs.

OTOH, many people are planning before it occurs to attend the event

But I think you really want to talk, before it occurs, to people who are planning to attend the event.

Yeah but I saw them less than a year ago.

chico21

chico21 said on the 10th May, 2012

yeah I'm super pissed about KC and Digitalism because they're the two acts I'm going for. thinking I might do half/half. I saw Digitalism last year but I love them, but KC would be fun. see how high I am...I mean how I'm feeling.

can you do strikethrough on this site?

Scooter mcgavin

If you see a handsome blonde guy wearing a Dr Dre t shirt it's probably me.

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 11th May, 2012

Il make sure to throw something at that guy, I don't know why since BC if anything is helpful & attentive to fl'ers needs. Just for being so darn handsome I suppose

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 12th May, 2012

I didn't see many dream boats today not my types anyway. Maitland has to be a hate crime against fashion & the dregs of society (sorry to those from nsw) makes me proud to be from Melbourne. Maccabees, city & colour & KC were excellent but keen to get back to civilization

shazie

shazie said on the 12th May, 2012

Maitland is the main reason I didn't go to GTM this year, such a hole that calls home to the worst festival bogans. Could've gone to Canberra but that's beside the point.

chico21 said on the 15th May, 2012

I had a great day. sure, the punters were interesting - but they weren't that different to Future. Prerequisite for entry was high-waisted denim shorts with your arse hanging out as per usual - smart choice of attire for when the temp hit single digits... idiots.
my breasts were groped on the way in by a toothless security woman which I've never experienced before and would hope to never again.

otherwise I thought the festival was brilliantly managed. bathrooms were always stocked and clean and no queues for drinks or toilets.
Digitalism were a massive highlight. the rest was orright.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 15th May, 2012



One of the few benefits of the Maitland crowd is that most of them don't bother going to the bathrooms.

Scooter mcgavin

Scooter mcgavin said on the 15th May, 2012

The toilets were a dream, I felt rude for pissing on their shiney clean urinals

Breasts were groped? I am pretty sure I was given a reach around & rim job

I also heard on the bus digitialism was shit because the girl only knew 2 songs. I was saddened to miss the but enjoyed KC all the same
