BINGEFEST is a 24-hour celebration of storytelling, performance art, journalism, video games, pop culture icons and podcasts.

“The Opera House is about exploring and reflecting the culture around us as its morphs and evolves,” said BINGEFEST founder and curator, Danielle Harvey.

“Television, podcasts, gaming and the internet at large create an artistic frame through which we view the world.

“Over the last few years, we have tried to push the boundaries of what audiences can expect to see at the Opera House – from Michael Cera to Ira Glass, Alan Ball, RJ Mitte, R.R Martin, Tavi Gevinson, Piper Kerman, Mallory Ortberg, Joss Whedon,and Gideon Raff. BINGEFEST is the culmination of all of these wonderful moments; we cannot wait to explore binge culture at the Sydney Opera House in the all-encompassing, immersive environment that only a festival can create.”

The inaugural BINGEFEST 2016 will take place over two days and across the Opera House from the forecourt to the Joan Sutherland Theatre.

Highlights include artists Shia LaBeouf, Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner in a new participatory performance artwork, which will take place over two successive nights, from midnight until 6am, and 10pm until 6am.
