Come jive to the vintage tunes and fresh modern beats of electro swing, jazz and blues performed by bands from across Europe and North America and let your heart lead you on a journey through time. But beware: you are certain to meet some strange folk along the way! Daring fire breathers light the way to a place where anything goes. Beautiful burlesque dancers tantalize on-lookers with their seductive striptease. Gentlemen, take off your hats for some scintillating can-can and saucy aerial silks. Give a holler for the Retro Fashion Show girls, and a nod way up to the stilt-walkers.

Electro Swing is a new dance music sensation that has been quickly gaining momentum at a select few events this year. Old-school swing and jazz songs are revamped and revisited, wrapped up in sick modern beats and sultry bass lines. Past meets future in an exciting and unique way that’s sure to get your feet moving.

Our event welcomes one and all, ordinary and extraordinary. Only here can you meet a Victorian dandy, a dreaded belly dancer and a 50's style swing dancer dancing together!
