Bingo Loco w/ Host Alex 'Ratdog' Dyson
Bingo Loco announces massive Australian tour with new host Alex Dyson
Originating from Ireland, Bingo Loco has been selling out across the globe, including three Australian national tours this year. Bingo Loco takes the traditional notion of the antiquated game and spins it on its head. Think a glow stick rave with epic music, ridiculous production, dance-offs, crazy costumes, lip-sync battles, outrageous props, confetti showers, live comedy and a lot of prizes you really want and don’t want to win from sacks of coal to lawnmowers to holidays to Bali.
The popularity of the event (with 98% selling out) stems from the public’s desire for something different, zany and ostentatious.
“People want to dance and be stupid but they also want comedy, competitions, prizes and theatrics” says co-founder William Meara. “They want to be involved in a show and not just left on a dance floor. Bingo Loco is not a performance, it’s an engaging experience with the mentality of a theatre show, while always ensuring every element is completely ridiculous. I don’t know of any other event where thousands of people will be singing their hearts out to Disney anthems, falling out of their chairs with laughter, raving to Sandstorm as well as competing for awesome (and awful) prizes… all while playing Bingo”.
The Bingo Loco organisers have been searching for some time to find a host in Australia that will be as loco as the event itself and Alex Dyson fits this profile. From triple j host, to podcast creator, to dancing his way into politics earlier this year; your boy Alex Dyson has certainly been busy and will now be host of Bingo Loco’s Bing Rave, which will tour Australia from July till September.
In 2019, Bingo Loco is partnering with Make-A-Wish® Australia with proceeds from the event going towards helping create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
