Dark Mofo In All Its Confronting, Mysterious Glory

During the Ogoh-Ogoh procession from Parliament Lawn to Dark Park in Hobart, Tasmania, the vibe on the street is pumping. This procession is the final act of Dark Mofo and follows two weeks of winter feasting, art installations, performances and music at what is becoming Australia's most loved modern arts festival, in the southern most capital city. By Emily Verdouw.

Recyclable Cardboard Festival Tents Are Coming To Australia

The 100% cardboard festival tent designed by the Dutch startup KarTent will be landing in Australia at Yours and Owls festival in Wollongong NSW this September. The eco-friendly alternative to traditional camping accommodation was introduced in the Netherlands in 2015 and rapidly crossed the border to most Western-European countries the following year. Full of momentum after receiving the prestigious Red Dot Design award in March 2017, KarTent is excited to see how Aussies adopt their revolutionary festival accommodation solution.
