White-hot English electronic tyros Disclosure and rapper Dizzee Rascal lead the overseas contingent going bush for the 10th annual Groovin the Moo festival, which hits Bunbury like a warm cow pat for the fifth time in May.

Other international artists include New York hip-hopper Action Bronson, NYC indie outfit Cults, Canadian electronica merchants Holy F… and Kiwi alt-rockers the Naked and Famous.

But some of the biggest names at this year's GTM are homegrown, with Sydney dance duo the Presets*bringing a completely new show to Funbury on May 10.

"We've been performing as the Presets for roughly the same time as the festival - we're both turning 10 this year," the Presets said yesterday.

"When we first played GMT, it was one show in Maitland (in New South Wales), we're now proud to be headlining the festival in six States."

Groovin the Moo makes its South Australian debut at Oakbank on Anzac Day, with shows following in Maitland, Canberra, Bendigo, Townsville and last, but not least, Bunbury.

The festival recycles a few high-profile but worthy additions to the line-up, including Violent Soho, Peking Duk, Loon Lake, Kingswood and the Jungle Giants, who all play the Big Day Out on Sunday. Then there are the Jezabels and Triple J Hottest 100 winner Vance "Riptide" Joy, who visit next weekend for St Jerome's Laneway Festival before returning for GTM. Other bands include Architecture in Helsinki, Thundamentals, Wave Racer and the very aptly named Andy Bull.
