MOFO Festival Announces 2017 Dates And First Acts

MOFO Festival has unleashed the first installment of their 2017 program.

As well as playing a headline Melbourne show, all-time legends Puscifer will be getting down at the Museum of Old and New Art. Adding to the hype comes tētēma – the latest project from Faith No More frontman Mike Patton in his only Australian show.

“Mike Patton and Maynard James Keenan (of Puscifer) are both visionaries and serial musical adventurers,” said Mofo curator Brian Ritchie. “They are just the tip of the iceberg of avant-garde musicians crashing into Tasmania in January.”

MOFO 2017 will run from Wednesday January 18 – Sunday January 22 in venues around Hobart, and Friday January 20 – Sunday January 22 on-site at Mona. The full lineup lands on Wednesday October 12.
