“On the last Saturday of the Festival, we’re all going to be skating along the foreshore as the sun sets – I can’t even skate and I’m excited for this.” – Rachel Chant, Festival Director

Transport yourself to neon lights and roller-disco fever with an all-in skate date set against the backdrop of Bondi Beach at golden hour.

Slip into your best outfit and let the roller-disco vibes consume you on this unforgettable communal experience as the sun sets on this year’s Festival. Bring your skates and lace up at the Bondi Pavilion Forecourt before hitting the pavement of our all-natural rollerdrome, Bondi Beach. Be sure to rock up early to limber up and learn some roller-choreo by our maître d’s from RollerFit.

Then we’ll keep the party going as we skate along the promenade — past iconic landmarks like Bondi Skate Park and the Bondi Sea Wall. The air will be filled with infectious disco hits from EastsideFM, setting the perfect rhythm to groove the evening away in between pop-up performances by our maître d’s, before wrapping up the evening back at the Pavilion.

Grab your friends and family and join us for this unique roller-skating adventure along Bondi Beach. Suit up, rock up and roll on.

COMPETITION: Be sure to come dressed in your best roller-disco-nostalgia-fit for a chance to win a pair of roller skates thanks to our friends at Impala Skate!
