We’re Almost There!

With less than a week to go before the festivities kick off, we have compiled for you a festival-ready to-do list for you, so that you can be fully prepared for Bondi Festival.

  • Assemble your team for I Liked It, But… (but don’t worry if your friends aren’t up for the challenge, you can just join a team on the night and win a vegan meat tray all. for. yourself.)
  • Cancel all prospective dates in preparation for a chance to date Bron Batten live on stage in Onstage Dating (have your date sorted? Bring them along!)
  • Start planning your haircut for @AbuSalim (once more, don’t worry if you don’t trust your locks with this barber – you won’t regret coming along for the ride)
  • Plan your visit to Bondi Festival – to remove any and all worries, we have some great tips and information below, along with some great local offers (where to eat, drink, sleep etc.) to try out during the festival.


Check out some amazing local finds!

Exquisite Corpse

All stories need someone to tell themselves to in order to exist. Exquisite Corpse is an intimate, one-on-one storytelling experience – where this time it is the young people who sit you down and read you a story.

I Liked It, But…

‘A fun night out with friends where you can also learn a little something about dance history and the inner workings of a leading Australian dance artist’s creative process.’
