Bondi Festival Waverley Art Prize 2024

What’s on the opening weekend?

Everyone’s invited to the prestigious 38th iteration of the Waverley Art Prize, celebrating excellence across the local and national contemporary visual arts sector, on the 5 July at Bondi Pav Gallery.

On the following day, we are honoured to bring the world premiere of Proud, Proud Woman: A Ruby Hunter Tribute (6 July) to the Bondi Pavilion Theatre. Featuring a lineup of talented First Nations singers and musicians, including Emily Wurramara and Dan Sultan, join us at this special event as we celebrate the enduring legacy of the late Ngarrindjero, Kokatha and Pitjantjatjara singer-songwriter.


Burnout Paradise Bondi Festival 2024

Explore immersive stories

On the second week of the festival, don’t miss the hilarious Sydney premiere of Burnout Paradise (11 – 13 July) from the award-winning collective Pony Cam! Watch on as four performers tackle a series of wild tasks on treadmills, humorously highlighting the labour, recklessness and euphoric optimism that precedes burnout.

Dive into the fascinating gothic live-board game show Blood on the Clocktower: Live! with storyteller Harry Jun who’ll be guiding you through skillful bluffs, accusations and executions. For fans of social deduction games like Mafia and Werewolves, comes this live comedy special.

Be amazed by the internationally award-winning HELIOS (11 – 14 July), the modern re-telling of the ancient myth of the son of the Sun God Helios by UK masters of storytelling Wright & Grainger and starring Jamie MacDowell.

And many more!




Back by popular demand!

After sell-out seasons in 2023, we are thrilled to welcome back some of your Bondi Fest fav’ shows again this year!

Play along as a villager or villain in the award-winning interactive show Werewolves (11 – 14 July) with expert game master Nicholas Giles Phillips. Test your poker face in this game of accusation, deceit and fun. Do you dare?

Sharpen your pencils because Bondi Fest x Gladdy Drawing Club (11 & 14 July) returns for two special performative life-drawing classes. Featuring acclaimed artists’ Andrew Yee and Wendy Sharpe, these inclusive and body-positive classes are the best life drawing events you’ll experience in Sydney this winter!

Lots to love and explore!

On the final weekend of the festival we celebrate the many things we love about our Bondi community at the inaugural Gould St Street Party (20 July), featuring an array of eats and beats, local brewers, shopping pop-ups, and eclectic entertainments.

And it wouldn’t be a festival without the iconic Bondi Festival Ice Rink and the legendary Bondi Vista Ferris Wheel returning to Bondi Beach!
