Tasmania’s Dark Mofo festival has announced the first act joining its 2018 bill.
British acid legends Electric Wizard will perform an exclusive show at the festival in June. They haven’t toured Australia since 2005, and fans have been eager to have them back — so much so that there was a Facebook petition to bring the band to the country at one point.
This tour is off the back of their ninth album Wizard Bloody Wizard, which was released last year. Given that it’s an exclusive performance at Dark Mofo, it’s unlikely there will be more Australian dates, so you’re going to have to make your way to Tasmania.
The rest of the Dark Mofo lineup is yet to drop, but it shouldn’t be too far off. Previous lineups have included the likes of Chelsea Wolfe, ZHU and Antony & The Johnsons.
This year’s festival will take place between 15th and 24th June.
