If all you do today is buy yourself a ticket to Dark Mofo’s Transliminal, consider your hump day a success. Organised by Tasmania’s MONA and brought to us by Red Bull Music Academy, this four night rave will add essential heat to this year’s festival held in the middle of winter. The four party nights have been planned to take place in Hobart City Hall – a space that, according to MOFO itself, will enhance escapism and push party goers to “dance beyond the threshold”. Considering the line up, such a promise doesn’t seem farfetched at all. Each year, the event pulls the most interesting and experimental names in music and art together. For Transliminal, that’s definitely the case. The line up includes DJ Harvey, Legowelt, Lipelis, András, Juliana Huxtable, Maurice Fulton, J’Nett and Melbourne’s very own DJ bunny, Brooke Powers, to name a few. These musical acts will have their sounds complemented by the disorientating and atmospheric light installations of Australian audio-visual artist Robin Fox. Sounds like the warehouse rave of our dreams, set to come true.
It’s time to quit mourning the end of one long weekend and start preparing for others to come. Buy your tickets to Dark Mofo’s Transliminal before it’s too late.
