Second Dark Mofo 2018 Lineup Announcement: Chrysta Bell, Tim Minchin & More
American long-time Lynchian collaborator Chrysta Bell, Australian musical enfant terrible Tim Minchin, and renowned journalist Peter Greste interviewing former violent jihadist Muhammad Manwar Ali are some of the highlights of the second program revelation for Dark Mofo 2018.
Today’s addition marks Minchin’s first solo Australian show in over a decade. Bell, who has just come off starring in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return, will be joined by Rebekah Del Rio, to whom adoring Lynch fans will need no introduction.
Another noteworthy event is Tanya Lee’s ‘Landing’, which is a cumulative 24-hour marathon at the Hobart Aquatic Centre that replicates the 431 km of distance between Australia and Manus Island.
Dark Mofo 2018 will run between 13th and 24th June, with a prelude weekend from 7th to 10th June.
