Mona Foma

Mona Foma, Mona’s summer festival, is a high-summer celebration of music, art, performance and hedonism, designed to solicit discord and exploit your sense of fun.

In January 2020, Mona Foma embarks on a light-drenched odyssey across Launceston with more than 400 artists from around the world, featuring: performances from Laibach (Slovenia), Ludovico Einaudi (Italy), Flying Lotus 3D (USA), Amanda Palmer (USA), Paul Kelly (AUS), Orville Peck (Canada), Tim Hecker (Canada), Chai (Japan), and Holly Herndon (USA); an inflatable, technicolour temple of light and sound on the banks of the Tamar; sport-and-spectator-centric art in a 1960s suburban leisure centre; a twilight celebration of palawa (Tasmanian Aboriginal) architecture, art, food and stories; the return of festival nightclub Faux Mo; a laser-and-synth, psychedelic boat ride inspired by the ancient Greek underworld; a rollicking, larger-than-life puppet extravaganza in the Gorge; and a whole lot more.

Mona Foma returns: 11–20 January
