Are you itching and scratching all over to be part of the folk-punk orgy?

HOBOFOPO is an annual gathering of folk-punk bands and fans, taking over Hobart and surrounds for a musically debaucherous four-day gig-crawl. Previous years have seen the likes of; Days N Daze, AJJ, Sydney City Trash, The Go Set, Paddy McHugh, Handsome Young Strangers and The Ramshackle Army join in the fun. It’s a DIY volunteer-run event, and we look for acts that are keen to be a part of this ethic, as well as bands that are sick. Pay is pretty small, we sell tickets and make some money, but when you split that around 30 acts (we take no pay or profit), it splits pretty thin. But being volunteer-driven, we do our best to help out wherever, things like driving, housing, feeding and lending instruments, to the best of our ability. Plus, you get to hang out with the incredible folk-punk community and be part of the best four days of folk-punk ever.

So are you ready to be a part of the folk punk orgy?
