TASMANIAN win­ter fes­ti­val Dark Mofo re­turns to Ho­bart to­day for three weeks of feast­ing, pa­rades, and per­for­mances.

The “uniquely Tasmanian” event will also see sev­eral hun­dred keen swim­mers jump­ing into the River Der­went to wel­come the sun­rise af­ter the long­est night at the an­nual Nude Sol­stice Swim.

Busi­ness Events Tas­ma­nia ceo Marnie Craig said the event was help­ing to “lift Tas­ma­nia’s ap­peal as a win­ter busi­ness desti­na­tion”, with Ho­bart en­joy­ing in­creased in­ter­est from groups plan­ning their trips to co­in­cide with the fes­ti­val.

This year’s event will fea­ture an artist be­ing ‘buried’ in a ship­ping con­tainer un­der one of Ho­bart’s busiest streets, panel dis­cus­sions about death, reli­gion & war, as well as per­for­mances by co­me­dian Tim Minchin.
