SPARK MOFO playfully takes its name from the highly acclaimed ‘Dark Mofo’ festival held annually in Hobart. Whilst not affiliated with the Tasmanian event, SPARK MOFO draws on similar themes and ideas such as the use of multi-disciplinary artforms.

This year, SPARK MOFO will venture into the themes of death, our desire to be distracted from it, and the potential for beauty to be found in it.

The event will feature live music performances, coupled with live ‘death drawing’ from local, Ipswich artists and musicians, and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the activities on display.

Musical Artists involved:

Karoshi Karoshi is a Brisbane-based duo who have been exploring the burgeoning world of DNB and rock, finding a place where the Prodigy meets Pendulum meets AC/DC. With no initial vision of where they were heading, the duo churned through dozens of songs before honing in on their now distinctive style. @karoshi_band

DAMIEN Hailing from Ipswich, Australia, DAMIEN is a producer, singer and songwriter using music as a vehicle for ultimate self-expression. With comparisons to Depeche Mode and Nine In Nails, DAMIEN operates within the grey, navigating the complex soundscape of alternative electro-rock. @damiencreates
