With big-name acts already announced including Tash Sultana, Thundamentals, The Wombats, Milky Chance and more, Townsville’s Groovin the Moo has just raised the steaks again (we’ll never stop with the cow puns!), with today’s Fresh Produce announcement. 

Joining the list of nationally and internationally-recognised artists are some of the best up-and-comers from across Queensland: Greta Stanley (Cairns), Tia Gostelow (Mackay), Confidence Man (Brisbane), Mallrat (Brisbane) and Robbie Miller (Brisbane).  

To get you in the moooooo-d to groove on April 30, check out each of the Fresh produce acts below!

Greta Stanley

Usually, you’ll find Greta performing solo: but she’ll be supported by a band for GTM, so expect her sound to be bigger than ever! Following Groovin, Greta will be well and truly ready for the release of her debut LP, with more than enough songs at the ready. Check out our chat with Greta here!

Tia Gostelow

Another NQ local, Tia has released a couple of singles already and isn’t far from launching her first EP. She wowed audiences at BIGSOUND last year, she’s been nominated for so many Queensland Music awards that she might need to wheel them all home in a trolley, and we’re lucky enough to be welcoming her to Townsville for Groovin!

Confidence Man

When they describe themselves as ‘four bastard children,’ you know to expect the unexpected. In their own words: “Starring smooth vocals by Janet Planet and Sugar Bones, this classified musical collab between Reggie Goodchild and Clarence McGuffie is your very own self-help book. Being confident has never looked sexier, or sounded sharper. Confidential, it’s a secret. Shh.” So yeah. Be ready for fun.


Her lyrics are relatable, her music makes you want to dance, and there’s a good chance that she’s younger than you. Mallrat is already taking the indie/ alternative music world head-on, being named the 14th most-played artist on Triple J Unearthed last year and earning more than five million streams of her music on Spotify to date. Don’t miss out on seeing her live.

Robbie Miller

His Like a Version of Odesza’s Say My Name has been viewed more than 107,000 times, and for good reason: Robbie’s voice could turn reading the phone book into a Hottest 100 contender. If you think his tracks sound like fire, just wait until you hear him live.

Catch the Fresh Produce artists tearing up the Groovin the Moo Townsville paddocks at Murray Sporting Complex on Sunday, April 30. Tickets are still available through MoshTix, but get in quick – Maitland, Bendigo and Canberra have already sold out!
