Paint the Town Red

It’s time to Paint the Town Red 

Destination Southern Tasmania (DST) and Dark Mofo are excited to invite you to Paint the Town Red once again this winter.

What is it?
Each year, we encourage local businesses to light up in red for the duration of Dark Mofo—not only to show support for the festival but to give festival-goers a warm welcome.

What can I do?
Paint the Town Red! By which we mean go red, use red bulbs, red lanterns, red decorations or whatever red stuff you please to colour your business. Red menus, red drinks, red cakes, raspberry frogs on the pillows!

Anything in it for me?
Glad you asked! Dark Mofo is giving participating businesses a shout out on their website (if registered by 24 May 19) and participants will also be in the running to win $2000 of Southern Cross airtime and a full page of ad space in The Mercury or Sunday Tasmanian. This will be randomly drawn and include all participants.

Who should I tell?
Tell us! Register in the form below so that we can include your listing on the Dark Mofo website and in our social media activity!

When should I start?
Registration period is from Wednesday 1 May to Sunday 23 June 2019. To be listed on the Dark Mofo website you must register by 24 May 2019. Lights on or activation started by 1 June 2019.  Dark Mofo runs from 6 – 23 June, in its seventh year.
