MONA FOMA 2012 lineup

Although it has only been running for a few years MONA FOMA has attracted some big names to Tasmania including Grinderman, Wire and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

The 2012 edition of the festival has also scored some hugely impressive acts including headliner PJ Harvey who will be showcasing songs from her Mercury Prize winning album Let England Shake.

PJ will be joined in Hobart by the repeat MONA FOMA visitor Amanda Palmer playing with Dresden Dolls, Sigur Ros collaborators Amiina, Japanese sound artist Ryoji Ikeda, musique concrète pioneer Pierre Henry, and several acts who will also be here for the Sugar Mountain festival including Tune-Yards, Julianna Barwick and Prince Rama.

_Tickets on sale at 9am Wednesday 19th October, or you can join the MONA mailing list to buy tickets from 9am Monday 17th October. For more information visit the MOFO website

grinderman will be a hard act to follow, but i think pj and the dresden dolls might just do the trick!! and poor, poor crob - as long as people like you keep thinking stuff like that about tassie, it will remain the awesome place that it is!!
