Dark Mofo, Mona’s midwinter festival in Tasmania, delves into centuries-old winter solstice rituals.
Dark Mofo 2020 is a city-wide cultural festival offering two vibrant weeks of engaging public art, live music, performances, and heady nocturnal revelry, exploring the links between ancient and contemporary mythology, humans and nature, religious and secular traditions, darkness and light, and birth, death and renewal.
Signature events include the delectable two-weekend Winter Feast on Hobart's waterfront and the colourful community celebration of the Ogoh-Ogoh parade and burning.
Make it an annual pilgrimage, for the Nude Solstice Swim, with more than 1000 people dropping their clothes and inhibitions to welcome back the light after the longest, coldest night in the nation.
Each year offers new major art and music precincts around the city, dialling up the artistic noise, experimental rock, synthwave, black metal, psych-folk, and a lot more.
Seize the night.
