Mono Foma Festival unfolds each January, transforming Hobart’s charming amalgam of historic architecture, contemporary art, and culinary delights into a pulsating hub of creativity. But Mono Foma’s influence isn’t confined to Hobart; it reaches across Tasmania, weaving the island’s diverse landscapes and communities into its vibrant tapestry.
Since its inception in 2009, Mono Foma has evolved from a fledgling event into a beacon of cultural innovation, drawing both local and international enthusiasts. This festival, with its ethos rooted in experimentation and the avant-garde, has become an annual pilgrimage for those seeking the cutting edge in music, art, and performance.
In its history, Mono Foma has been graced by the likes of Björk, the Icelandic vanguard of pop, and Laurie Anderson, the mastermind of experimental art and music. These luminaries, along with trailblazers like the Venezuelan electronic prodigy Arca, have etched Mono Foma’s name in the annals of pioneering festivals.
