Dark Mofo, the darkest, coolest and best festival in Australia, is back for 2018 from 13–24 June, and the music lineup is killer. Glam rock queen St. Vincent, legendary Canadian punk firebrand Alice Glass, the iconic Laurie Anderson and heaps, heaps more will be making the trek down to Hobart for the sixth edition of the festival, and the good news doesn't stop there: this year there will also be a festival prelude weekend from 7–10 June, with more music, art and performance, as well as a series of films curated by VICE. Better book those flights to Hobart ASAP.
