Dark Mofo mainstays to return

Despite the wider Dark Mofo celebrations being put on pause in 2024, several popular events, including the Winter Feast and Nude Solstice Swim, will return in June.

The Winter Feast will return for two separate weeks, from 13 to 16 June and again from 20 to 23 June at Princess Wharf 1 (PW1), showcasing some of Tasmania’s best food, wine and spirits.

After a record number of participants in 2023, the Nude Solstice Swim will be run with an increased capacity at Long Beach Sandy Bay on Friday 21 June.

The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) will open a new exhibition in June. Namedropping, a showcase exploring how people wish to be perceived by others, will be unveiled in the Lavish Gala at Mona on Friday 14 June and will run until April 2025.

“While the festival rests in 2024, the solstice does not and we are excited to gather once more to present two popular pillars of the Tasmanian midwinter, along with some exceptional extra events,” Dark Mofo artistic director Chris Twite said.

“Dark Mofo has established itself as a beacon of artistic exploration and challenging ideas for a decade, immersing audiences in the depths of darkness and the heart of winter.

“These events will ensure that Dark Mofo continues to be a catalyst for artistic innovation, cultural dialogue and shared experiences for many years to come.”
