Free flights for Dark Mofo


Dark Mofo is the Museum of Old and New Art’s festival of music, performance, food and art, celebrating the winter solstice with a nod to pagan notions of staving off the darkness and bringing back the light.

In an 11-day celebration of art at its finest, you’ll see world-class music featuring such local and international superstars as The Presets, Martha Wainwright, You Am I and The Drones. But Dark MOFO is much, much more than your garden-variety music festival; MONA is offering a full-on assault of the senses with a smorgasbord of concerts and performances, interactive artworks and giant installations popping-up all over Hobart.

At the centre of Dark MoFo is the launch of the new MONA exhibition Red Queen featuring a stunning line-up of international and Australian artists presenting works brand-new and time-tested, along the theme of why we create art.

According to creative director Leigh Carmichael, these performances and artworks will celebrate the very thing Hobart is most reviled for: the cold and dark.

Oh and did we mention that MONA is offering $100,000 worth of free flights? In order to attract interstate visitors, MONA have promised to pay for roughly 600 return flights to Hobart, ensuring that this groundbreaking new festival can be enjoyed by art enthusiasts across the country.

Dark MOFO will run from June 13-23, with new exhibitions, performances, locations and general mayhem being announced almost weekly from the Dark MOFO website. Check it out to find out more about the festival and apply for your own free return flight to Hobart.

In short: is there any better place to be in June than Hobart? We think not.  

Buy tickets now, thank yourself later.
