Festival Programme

A three day festival of Live Art and Performance
14-16 October 2016 at Rich Mix, Artsadmin and the Yard Theatre in London

Steakhouse Live is back with its most ambitious festival yet. LONGER WETTER FASTER BETTER presents 30 artists for three days of rowdy, sensual and provocative performances. Taking place across three East London locations the pieces range from a 30sec showdown to an 8-hour irreverent re-enactment of Radio 4 Sunday broadcast.

Glass will be shattered, skin will be tattooed, food will be consumed, paint will be thrown, hair will be singed and bums will shake.

FULL FESTIVAL TICKET PRICE: £35/32. (bought as individual tickets)
