MONA FOMA - MOFO
Hobart’s MONA FOMA (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art) in Tasmania, Australia will be held January 15-18 2015, plus a few surprise events either side.
Curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes, The Break), MOFO 2015 will be leaping back across the Port of Hobart to Princes Wharf 1 (PW1 festival hub, on the Salamanca side) and surrounding venues.
The four-day festival ticket will be packed with music and art - ranging from New York post-punk to Japanese girl groups, Mexican DJ's, guitar orchestras, inflatables, and interactive sound art - continuing with the tradition of hosting free events around the city in line with MONA’s egalitarian, anti-formulaic and non-hierarchical modus operandi. Try and say that after a few Moo Brews in the sunshine.
“We will be going for a sprawling non-stop 24/7 experience for MOFO 2015,” curator Brian Ritchie says. “Don't expect to sleep much.”
