The annual Groovin’ the Moo event that was scheduled to take over Bunbury’s Hay Park on May 8 has officially been cancelled.

A statement was released earlier today by event founders, Cattleyard Promotions, confirming it was not possible for the festival to return this year.

With the current restriction in place and the uncertainty around when they will end, a Cattleyard Promotions spokesperson said there were too many factors that prevented the festival from touring the country to deliver the event in the way that patrons have grown familiar with over the years.

“It is with a heavy heart that we need to postpone Groovin the Moo for the second year,” Cattleyard Promotions co-founder Steve Halpin said.

“We’re really going to miss GTM and not being able to spend another year with our crews, artists, team members, suppliers and you!

“We know it has been a very strange and tough time for everyone.”

Mr Halpin said ticket refund information would be sent out soon.

“We know it’s a big ask, but if you’re able to hold on to your ticket a bit longer, it will really help us in welcoming GTM back next year,” he said.

“Thank you to each and every one of you for sticking with us - we can’t wait to return in 2022”
