Dark Mofo has announced a special performance at this year's festival.

With Ukraine will be supported by the Arco Set Orchestra and Dean Stevenson on Tuesday 21 June, 8pm, at the Odeon Theatre in nipaluna/Hobart.

Dark Mofo will commit $10,000 of proceeds from the performance to Voices of Children, a charity providing support assistance to Ukrainian children and families affected by the Russian invasion.

Stevenson will compose and rehearse the piece live at Mona during opening hours across the two weeks of Dark Mofo as part of his ongoing compositional ‘4PM project’.

Dark Mofo Creative Director Leigh Carmichael says it's been difficult to hear the news.

"It's been difficult to focus on a festival, knowing that families in Ukraine are being torn apart, communities destroyed, and towns and villages annihilated in the war,” Mr Carmichael said.

“With Ukraine is part of our response, and combined with the proceeds of Chernobyl, the festival will donate more than $110,000 for the people of Ukraine."
