SATURDAY NOVEMBER 29, 12-5PM
Children aged 10 and under free
Don your dancing shoes and get ready to party with the coolest cats in town, The Cat Empire. Since emerging on the Australian music scene in the early millennium, the group and its troupe of trumpets, trombones, baritone horns, guitars, drums and percussion has toured all over the world, and now it's returned to the motherland to play a series of shows, including one here at MONA. Brace yourself - things are about to get wild.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 30, 12-5PM
In the words of the Supremes, 'Stop! In the name of love!' - and get yourself to MONA for a joyous arvo of African American Gospel and Motown-esque vibes from the Southern Gospel Choir (straight off the plane from LA, mind you) and an array of grooving special guests.
When Marvin Gaye asked the world to get it on, he was obviously talking about having some good ole PG-13 fun at Standing in the Shadows of MONA. It's one for the whole family, so bring along your little darlings to dance and sing along to music of the greats.
Let the good times roll and bust a move, or kick back on a beanbag and worship the sun. Praise be!
The Southern Gospel Choir are joined onstage by:
+ Maria Lurighi
+ Deanna Parkinson
+ Brian Ritchie
+ Jim Moginie
+ Andrew Legg
Supported by Lulu and the Paige-Turners
Violent Femmes + Augie March + Ben Salter

NEW YEAR'S DAY, THURSDAY JANUARY 1, DOORS OPEN 3PM
$70/$60* + BF
Blister in the New Year's Day sun (or nurse your well-earned hangovers from the night before in a beanbag), as original acoustic punk rockers, Violent Femmes, cut sick at MONA. They'll share the stage with two gems of the Australian music scene: angelic folk singer and MOFO repeat offender, Ben Salter, and much-adored Melbourne alt-rock-folk quintet, Augie March, here with their much-anticipated new album.
Full MOFO program out now, and tickets on sale.
*Free entry for 12 years and under (must be accompanied by an adult).
MOMA: MONA MARKET
SATURDAY JAN 17, 12PM - 5PM
EVERY SUNDAY UNTIL APRIL 5
Lead by MoMa's inimitable First Lady Kirsha Kaechele and her posse of wondrous winged monkeys, the market's fourth outing invites you to revel in the glorious sun-drenched agora (aka the MONA lawns), quaff delicious rainbow unicorn urine cocktails and get up close and personal with your lunch - sourced from a tasty-as selection of pop-up chow and bevvy vendors - before doing battle in a cultural dance-off (ballroom vs. break, ballet vs. krump) or letting your groove thang loose to MoMa's weekly musical marvels. Feel dem summer feels!
