While the first half of 2020 has been nothing short of rocky, there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
Sure, Bondi’s wintertime festivals—that's Bondi Feast and the Bondi Winter Magic Festival—may have been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, but the crew behind these beachside blowouts is back with a rescheduled and totally re-imagined experience set across 15 dazzling days in spring.
The new festival is yet to drop the full line-up of artists (you can expect more information to be announced over the coming weeks), but each night will feature cabaret and circus acts. The iconic Bondi Vista Ferris Wheel will be on the return too, with its unbeatable 360-degree views across the ocean, the beach and Bondi. There’ll also be a slew of new foodie tours and a brand new Bondi Roller Rink too.
Bondi Festival has also stated it’s entirely committed to adhering to social distancing requirements and will continue to monitor the global pandemic and government directives around social gatherings and community safety. The revamped festival will have processes in place to accommodate these.
