It’s with blurry eyes and a shaky lip that I announce the cancellation of ECHO Festival 2020.

At less than three weeks out I feel the social responsibility regarding the health of everyone.


I would like to thank all of the incredible people involved – Events Tasmania, Tourism Tasmania, the Artists, Chefs, Presenters, Sponsors, Volunteers and Guests for their understanding in this difficult decision.


We now will look forwards to the 2021 event over 26-28th March and know that we will come back stronger and as enthusiastic as ever - bigger and better.


Please everyone, take care and take care of one another in these crazy times.

Hopefully as a united world we will learn some good lessons from this global situation and we will soon be able to catch up with some amazing stories to share – stories that make us laugh, cry and roar – stories of bravery, compassion and triumph!


With love,

Ange & ECHO Festival xx


It’s with sadness that we digest the news from the Dark Mofo 2020 cancellation – our hearts go out to the incredible team who work so hard to make it happen. We do, however, understand this tough decision.

Whilst there is talk of filling the gap with new ideas, please know that ECHO is going ahead! It is a small, fun and independent event - please support us here in Tasmania and we hope to see you on the East Coast on Friday 3rd of April x
