Midnight Oil Will Play Four Mona Foma Shows In 2022

Midnight Oil are the first act to be announced for the 2022 edition of Mona Foma, with the legendary Australian band locked in for four dates in Launceston and nipaluna/Hobart.

They’ll be performing in Launceston on Sunday, 23rd January and Tuesday, 25th January, with shows on Friday, 28th January and Monday, 31st of January taking place at Mona in nipaluna/Hobart.

“Midnight Oil have been performing undeniably and unapologetically Australian music since their inception,” said Mona Foma’s Artistic Director Brian Ritchie.

“Their songs cover a wide range of topics. Their rock quotient is maximum. They have riveting stage presence. Mona Foma is proud to bring this essential band to Tasmania for a rare series of intimate shows.”

The band will perform material from their 2020 mini-record The Makarrata Project, as well as their new single ‘Rising Seas’, as well as a bunch of forthcoming material.

Midnight Oil’s Rob Hirt said they’re looking forward to performing at the festival.

“Members of our band have been regulars at Mona Foma, on-stage and off, since the very first festival,” he said.

“Now finally playing as Midnight Oil, we’ll rotate songs from years past with fresh tracks from our soon to be released new album. See you there!”

The full 2022 Mona Foma program is due to be announced on 3rd December.

Tickets to Mona Foma, including Midnight Oil’s shows, are due to go on sale on Monday, 6th December.
