Winter Feast returns to Dark Mofo (Hobart)

Mona’s winter solstice festival Dark Mofo will sweep through Hobart for 11 days this June, bringing a multitude of the weird and wonderful to venues, dark corners, and hubs across the city spanning the arts, live music, food, light, film, and more. Cerebral works from local and international artists will be displayed in temporary hubs like Dark Park and Black Box. You can check out more on the arts component HERE.

One of the most popular aspects of the festival, the multi-day Winter Feast, will also be making it’s very anticipated return this year, filling Princes Wharf Shed No.1, Castray Esplanade, and Salamanca Lawns with the city’s largest and darkest communal banquet from Wednesday 15th June to Sunday 19th June (nightly from 4pm to 10pm).

This year the Winter Feast will be focusing in on flame-grilled street food along with all the local favourites, from restaurants to breweries, who will be setting up stalls all over the space. If last year’s Winter Feast is anything to go by, you can expect a lot of fire (meaning more chocolate smores being roasted over burning barrels), mulled wine absolutely everywhere, and some of Hobart’s best seasonal eats in an atmosphere that is really like no other in Australia. Watch out for the human crows while your dancing to the live music.

You’ll know the entry by the hellfire that greets you at the gates. Tickets are $10 nightly From 15th-17th June, $20 on 18th June, and free on Sunday night. A season pass is set at $50+BF. Tickets to all events for Dark Mofo go on sale today. For tickets and the full program click HERE.
