Accor Pacific, Tasmania’s largest hotel operator, has been named the Official Accommodation Partner for Dark Mofo. Returning 8-22 June 2023, Hobart’s midwinter festival – Dark Mofo – is a celebration of the dark through large-scale public art, food, music, fire, light, and noise, underpinned by the longest night of any Australian capital city.
The festival delves into centuries-old rituals to explore the links between ancient and contemporary mythology, humans and nature, religious and secular traditions, darkness and light, birth, death and renewal.
As Dark Mofo’s 2023 Official Accommodation Partner, Accor invites guests to explore Hobart across two weeks of thrilling public art, live music, performances and plenty of nocturnal revelry taking place across the city.
Don’t miss the famous frivolity of the Winter Feast on the waterfront, the Ogoh-Ogoh’s Purging and Burning, two weekends of late-night revelry at Night Mass, and the Nude Solstice Swim which closes the festival — welcoming back the light after the longest night.
DarkLab Marketing and Business Director, Drew Berridge, said: “Dark Mofo is delighted to partner with Accor to provide visitors to nipaluna/Hobart with an array of quality hotels to add to an enjoyable festival experience. As well as hosting our festival artists, Accor hotels will offer scale and options for a range of budgets for our patrons to come and enjoy our city during midwinter. With access to Accor’s broad customer base, we will be furthering awareness of Dark Mofo for new audiences to celebrate winter with us.”
Accor Pacific CEO, Sarah Derry, said: “We are thrilled to work with Dark Mofo and provide excellent accommodation choices for guests visiting Tasmania. The festival is one of Australia’s most innovative and captivating celebrations of arts and culture, alongside world-class dining. Dark Mofo is a great reason to visit Hobart and explore the rest of Tasmania.”
Accor has four hotels in Hobart, including international brands such as Mövenpick, Mantra and ibis Styles.
