Three More Nights of Mayhem
The final weekend is upon us here at Bondi Feast and we are cramming as many live shows as we can into three nights of wintery wonder. Don’t miss out! Download the festival app, check out our final weekend planner below and come join the Feast festivities.
If you have already been down to the beach to join us then you’ll know just how cosy and fun-filled Bondi Feast is this year. If you have not been down (and parked your car for free after 7pm) then you have just three more chances to check out the off-beat Kiwi circus, award-winning comedy, sultry cabaret and innovative new theatre works we have on the bill.
“[The] Bondi Pavilion is transformed into a sanctuary of warmth and fun away from the cold winter nights… it’s the place to be.”
Talk Around Town
- You have tonight to check out Cool Pool Party from 11-year old Scarlett Beaumont and Antionette Barboutis, aka “one of our most valuable artists” (Suzy Goes See). It’s an unbelievable show and there is a fantastic write-up on the creative process between Scarlett and Antoinette here.
- Our beachside, round-the-back, open-air spectacular The Lady or the Tiger is unlike any show we have ever hosted at the festival. Co-Director Mikala Westall explains all here.
- Hear what Daley King, the artist behind Hold Your Breath (Count To Ten) has to say to Audrey Journal about diving in the deep end and “challeng[ing] art-making stereotypes“.
- Read what Dazza and Keif have to say about the “new-found power” they experience as Aussie B-Boys. Do not miss these comedy superstars!
