This year’s program will be postponed until 2021.
Scheduled to hit Hobart in June, Dark Mofo 2020 has been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. The news was revealed this morning in two official statements from the Dark Mofo team.
“After a thorough risk assessment on the potential impact and disruption of coronavirus, we have been left with no option other than to move the current program to 2021,” said Dark Mofo Creative Director Leigh Carmichael.
“The financial exposure faced by David Walsh of a festival-wide last minute cancellation would run into the millions, and likely end the event permanently. We’ve had to act decisively to ensure Dark Mofo’s long term survival.”
At this stage, Bon Iver’s sold-out performances will go ahead as planned.
