Welcome to the Electro Vaudeville Fest! An international festival of live music and performances where classy lasses and scruffy scoundrels alike come to enjoy a hoppin’, swingin’ good time on their feet.
Jive to the vintage tunes and fresh modern beats of electro swing, and let your heart lead you on a journey through time. But beware: you are certain to meet some strange folk along the way!
