MONA FOMA 2014 FESTIVAL LINEUP ANNOUNCED
The Museum of Old and New Art in Tasmania kicks off its annual Festival of Music and Art, where MONA’s creative chaos spills out all over Hobart in a most unpredictable way.
MONA FOMA is back, but not as you know it; running from Wednesday 15 January to Sunday 19 January 2014, MOFO is skipping across the Port of Hobart and anchoring down at Macquarie Wharf (MAC1 and MAC2 to you) for the first time.
Featuring two stages, three orchestras, more than 200 artists and four hours’ sleep a night (okay, so that hasn’t changed), this MOFO program is all over the place. On purpose.
There’s a dancing robot, a free-styling philosopher, prog-punk space opera, morning meditation, black metal with violins, gender liberationists, ambient electronica, string quartet protest music, a Krautrock pioneer, bluegrass Bach, improvised pipe organ, and the usual Bacchanalian nightclub mayhem of Faux Mo. Oh, and lasers. You know there will be lasers.
Since the first MONA FOMA in 2009, the five-day party has grown to become Tasmania’s largest – and what some consider Australia’s best – contemporary music festival (Helpmann Awards 2012), showcasing a broad range of art forms, including sound, noise, dance, theatre, visual art, performance and new media.
Curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes, The Break) with MONA senior curators Nicole Durling and Olivier Varenne, MONA FOMA is a festival designed to inspire new experiences in music and art. Continuing MONA’s egalitarian philosophy, the MOFO 2014 program is pretty out there… but we trust you’ll find a way. We’re making it easy for you.
“Music is around us everyday, everywhere, whether we want it or not. Some people are lucky to find ‘their’ music to play or for listening at least once in their lifetime,” MONA FOMA Curator Brian Ritchie says. “Others are not so lucky. MOFO is a curatorial gambling operation that aspires to increase your odds by widening options.”
MONA is Australia’s unique art experience and MOFO is the perfect time to visit Hobart for a museum and festival double-up. Go all-in, MOFOs. This one’s got a wide winning margin.

Face The Music opens the conference with a special forum challenging the shakedown in Australian Festivals this year. Do we have a crisis? Or is it just a shift in what music punters want? Some festivals are having their best year ever, while some of Australia?s favourites like Homebake, Harvest, Parklife, Peats Ridge and Pyramid are cancelling or restructuring. What The Festival! Please don?t take our summer away! Face The Music presents people who should know: Festival creators Ken West (Big Day Out co-founder), Paul Sloan (Rock-It WA, Billions Australia), Groovin The Moo Promoter Steve Halpin and Blink (Camp A Low Hum, NZ).
With his band?s reputation cemented as one of Australia?s most prolific purveyors of indie-pop hits, two album releases and four entries in triple j?s 2013?s Hottest 100, Ball Park Music?s singer Samuel Cromack will discuss his song writing in an intimate APRA In Conversation with Triple J?s Dom Alessio, before joining presenters including filmmaker Darcy Prendergast and Rage Programmer Tyson Koh for Moving Pictures, discussing how great visuals can combine with a good song to leave a lasting impact.
Melbourne artist Courtney Barnett joins the Face The Music program for the APRA Songwriting Masterclass. Courtney has received numerous AIR and APRA Award nominations and played shows across the USA, UK and France. Her dense but honest lyrics combined with psychedelic folk and pop sensibility has caused chaos at CMJ in New York this week as ?people squeeze into every available nook and cranny to catch the Melbourne songwriter. ?the word is well and truly out? (themusic.com.au).
ARIA Award winning artist and producer M-Phazes has featured on releases from a who?s who of international talent (Talib Kweli, Redman, Kimbra, 360, Bliss N Eso). Yamaha presents a unique workshop opportunity to take a walk through M-Phazes unique production methods, focusing on drum programming and sampling, and providing an insight into the approach of one of Australia?s most sought after producers.
Held over two days at Arts Centre Melbourne November 15th and 16th, Face The Music is Melbourne?s annual contemporary music summit for artists and the music industry.

Warner Music Australia with support from Converse, Sharpie & eBay are delighted to announce the
launch of their major charity Auction to help raise funds this October during Cancer Awareness
Inspired after generating funds of over $120k for the National Breast Cancer Foundation in 2012,
Warner Music Australia has spent the past 18 months creating the inaugural In Their Shoes initiative.
In Their Shoes is the aptly named major worldwide creative project which has seen musicians
across the globe come together in the name of charity to hand design Converse sneakers.
The inspiration behind In Their Shoes was born on a beautiful Sydney summer’s day, when Warner
Music’s blog Cool Accidents set about to film an ‘Under the Bridge Session’ with U.S indie band
Grouplove. But before filming could even start, what really caught the crew’s eye was a pair of
sneakers. What at first appeared to be a pair of custom designed Converse sneakers worn by the
band’s tour manager, in fact turned out to be a unique one off design by the bands vocalist and
Artist in her own right, Hannah Hooper.
Like all great ideas this simple yet uniquely created Converse sneaker inspired the beginning of
Warner Music/Cool Accident’s In their Shoes initiative. Over the course of 18 months local and
touring musicians were asked to create a design with nothing more than a pair of plain white
Converse sneakers & sharpie fabric markers. The artists in turn put their own unique stamp on the
sneakers adding colour, design, humour and of course, their very own personal touch.
The result was an overwhelming 70 pairs of sneakers designed by a diverse range of musicians from
all over the world and from all walks of life. Contributing Artists include Bruno Mars, The Black Keys,
Ed Sheeran, James Blunt, New Order, Kimbra, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Red Hot Chili Peppers,
Skrillex and of course, the pair that started it all, those designed by Grouplove.
These hand designed, one of a kind works of art will be auctioned off at the end of October via a
global auction on eBay with proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation or Charity
of the artist’s choice.
The sneaker designs will be gradually unveiled from Monday October 7 th through Cool Accidents
‘Sneaker Peak’ website and also at the official website www.intheirshoes.com.au
A Public Exhibition will be held from midday to 7pm on Sunday October 27th at The Standard in
Sydney where all 70 sneaker designs will be on display. Entry is all ages and by gold coin donation.
The auction, hosted on eBay, will go live on Thursday October 24th at 6pm on the dedicated
page www.ebay.com.au/intheirshoes and bidders will be able to start their bids from $99. There
will also be a shareable function that will post people’s favourite shoes to their social channels.
The auction will close on Tuesday October 29th.
In Demand (eBays Charity partner) will facilitate the auction, with all sneakers and their all-
important certificate of authenticity being shipped to their lucky new owners on October 30th.
