Australia’s midwinter solstice festival Dark Mofo has today announced its 2022 event will go ahead from 15–22 June in Hobart, Tasmania.
With the Tasmanian Liberal Government providing $2.5 million annually as part of the government’s fund to secure Tasmania’s iconic events, along with David Walsh’s $2.5 million underpinning, and dedicated marketing support from Tourism Tasmania, Dark Mofo’s festival organisers are working towards 2022 with renewed 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,” Dark Mofo 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.”
Dark Mofo’s Covid-Safe Plan will comply with health recommendations, as organisers continue to monitor the situation and restrictions closely, particularly in relation to any further travel restrictions.

Dark Mofo is a project of the Museum of Old and New Art, supported by the Tasmanian Government through Events Tasmania and the City of Hobart.
