MOFO will return Hobart in January with Amanda Palmer returning to the event as well as Paul Kelly with a line-up once again curated by Brian Ritchie.

The four=day event in Hobart is in its seventh year.

It will take place at Princes Wharf 1 (PW1 festival hub, on the Salamanca side) and surrounding venues including The Odeon, Theatre Royal, Federation Concert Hall, Hobart Town Hall, Salamanca Arts Centre, Rosny Barn, Spring Bay Mill, Baha’i Centre, GASP!, Mawson Place, Contemporary Art Tasmania, Constance ARI, and MONA

“We are thrilled that the audience for MOFO has developed to the point where we can present this dazzling array of creativity and know the people are ready, willing and able to come along for the ride. It’s a party with brains, heart and soul,” MOFO curator Brian Ritchie said.

“MONA FOMA creates a soundtrack to the Tasmanian summer. Every year the festival transforms Hobart’s waterfront into the perfect stage for an eclectic blend of artists that draws an audience from across the globe and creates a cultural centrepiece for our island state’s summer events calendar, added Premier and Tasmania Minister for Tourism Will Hodgman.

“There’s no doubt word is getting out that our island is an emerging and thriving cultural destination and events like MONA FOMA are drawing the curious to our shores. The Tasmanian Government is proud to once again team with MONA to deliver this major summer event for locals and our visitors to enjoy,” he added.

Events Tasmania Director Adam Sproule said: “As we enter the seventh year of MONA FOMA, I think we can comfortably say that it has established itself as a part of Tasmania’s exciting summer of events. MONA FOMA gives locals and visitors a reason come together to celebrate food, art and culture and we look forward to even more of this excitement in 2015.”
