Week one of the festival will also feature an opening ceremony called The Gathering that celebrates First Nations artists, including BARKAA, Tasman Keith, dameeeela, DENNI, MARLON X RULLA, Uncle Dougie Mansell, Katarnya Maynard, and Rob Braslin.

The festival’s theme this year is reflection, and Dark Mofo’s lineup aims to provide an immersive experience that encourages introspection. In addition to the music program, the festival will also feature art installations, food events, and a range of other performances that showcase the unique spirit of Tasmania.


“We’re excited to announce our tenth Dark Mofo lineup today,” state’s the festival’s creative director, Leigh Carmichael. “The last few years have been challenging, and heavily impacted by Covid, so to finally be in a position to again release a full two-week festival program feels overwhelming.

“The tenth edition will include the return of Dark Park, a large-scale art program, eight nights of Winter Feast and a massive music program. Night Mass will be expanded to five nights and will be Dark Mofo’s wildest party in our ten year history. While visitors can expect old favourites, we also have a few new surprises to unfurl.

“This year’s festival will be a reflection of the past decade, and while much has changed, our desire to celebrate the longest nights and embrace winter in Tasmania hasn’t wavered. We can’t wait to light the fires again this June.”
