Dark Mofo organisers confirm the event will be back in 2022

Dark Mofo announces 2022 dates

Dark Mofo has announced it will go ahead in 2022 from June 15-22.

With the Tasmanian government providing $2.5 million annually as part of a fund to secure the state's iconic events, David Walsh providing $2.5 million underpinning the event, and marketing from Tourism Tasmania, organisers are working towards the 2022 event with vigour.

"After the death of the 2020 festival, and a near death experience in 2021, we're beginning the next era of Dark Mofo by exploring the ideas of rebirth, reincarnation, and new life," creative director Leigh Carmichael said.

"As the world emerges from the darkness of COVID-19, we're hoping Dark Mofo 2022 will provide opportunities for us to reconnect and celebrate winter in the manner we'd become accustomed to prior to the health restrictions around travel and events."

The Dark Mofo 2022 program will be announced in autumn, and those interested can sign up to the mailing list at darkmofo.net.au.
