Dark MOFO 2018 to feature Jarboe, Merzbow, Einstüzende Neubauten and more

Posted April 8, 2018, 9:48 a.m.
Dark MOFO 2018 to feature Jarboe, Merzbow, Einstüzende Neubauten and more

Right.

For the upcoming sixth annual DARK MOFO festival from 3–24 June 2018 in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia from 13-24 of June I was going to work on a “X reason to visit Dark Mofo 2018”.

A noble plan.

That was until the revelation of this year’s program.

As you might have derived from our previous coverage of everything MONA related, minds have never not been blown by the proceedings and offerings of both MONA FOMA and Dark Mofo.

However, this year’s program is something else and warrants a visit no matter where you are situated on this earthround.

Shall we?

Brace yourself as I will merely list the highlights of what is in store for you this year:

In the realm of art: Lou Reed Drones,  Ryoji Ikeda (JPN), United Visual Artists *(GBR), ZERO at Mona, A Journey to Freedom at  TMAG,  Matthew Schreiber * (USA),  French & Mottershead * (GBR), Chalkroom ( Laurie Anderson + Hsin-Chien Huang ),  Soda_Jerk, Terrapin Puppet Theatre plus many more.

Music-wise:  Laurie Anderson  (USA),  Tanya Tagaq * (CAN),  Electric Wizard (GBR),  St. Vincent  (USA),  Alice Glass  (CAN),  Lydia Lunch  (USA),  Zola Jesus  (USA),  Nobody (Willis Earl Beal) (USA),  Jarboe (USA) and  Father Murphy (ITA),  Einstüzende Neubauten *,  Blasphemy * (CAN),  Batushka * (POL),  Portal *,  Autechre  (GBR),  Marlon Williams  (NZL)  The Haxan Cloak * (GBR),  Merzbow  (JPN)*,  William Basinski * (USA),  Rebekah del Rio * (USA),  Iona Fortune * (SCO),  Peder Mannerfelt * (SWE),  Group A * (JPN),  ALTAR* (Roly Porter + Paul Jebanasam) *,  Pan Daijing  (CHN/DEU),  Demdike Stare + Michael England * (GBR)  Charlemagne Palestine  (USA), many more.

As usual, the artistic and music performances are only part of Dark Mofo: The annual Winter Feast will open its gates at Hobart’s waterfront to frame the festival with culinary delights and a masked costume ball, multi-venue late-night party precinct, Twin Peaks-esque Bang Bang Bar, guest curation by Berlin Atonal  (DEU), Dark Park, Winter Feast, Nude Solstice Swim, ogoh-ogoh purging and burning, theatre, orchestra, opera, more 
Dark Mofo 2018 will be preluded from 7–10 June with a weekend featuring new major exhibition openings of ZERO at Mona (Museum of Old and New Art) and A Journey to Freedom at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), an orchestral quartet at the Port Arthur Historic Site, plus the new weekend-long literature, film, and ideas event Dark and Dangerous Thoughts, a masked costume ball taking over an historic hotel, and art exhibitions across the city of Hobart.
