The 2014 Groovin' the Moo festival line-up was announced on Wednesday morning to a glowing reception from music fans and social media.
The lineup includes big-name international acts such as UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, Disclosure, Action Bronson and The Naked and Famous.
There's also a number of local favourites like The Jezabels, Illy and Triple J Hottest 100 favourite Vance Joy.

Groovin' in the Moo promoter Stephen Halpin said he was very happy that the line-up had been received so positively.
"I think it's a very good line up, a couple of big international names, some good Aussie acts and some really good up and comers. I think it's a really exciting, fresh, fun line-up," he said.
He said the festival had become an event which artists expressed an interest in playing.
"Events like this appeal to bands that want to do something different, go to different areas and play to a different crowd," he said.
The regional touring music festival has been running since 2005, making this its ninth annual festival and their fifth in Canberra.
It'll be its largest yet with the addition of a sixth tour date in the South Australian town of Oakbank.
The news was well-received by social media, with music fans describing it as the best line-up ever.
