Canberräng 2017


Jumptown Swing cordially invites you to attend Canberräng from the 3rd to the 6th of August 2017 for an around the world adventure which will dazzle you with the delights of swinging across the seven seas! Canberräng is Canberra’s Festival of Swing, one of Australia’s longest running and most loved lindy exchanges.

Over 30 hours of social dancing including late nights with blues and lindy rooms, eight incredible live bands, Australia’s best DJs, stunning venues and wonderful lindy hoppers from near and far all contribute to making this a truly spectacular weekend! This will be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy an incredible live music lineup comprised of Jessie Gordon (Perth), Sara Jeanne and the City Gents (Sydney), 5th Avenue (Canberra), Jonno Zilber (Mackay), Sean Loughran (Melbourne), the CBR Big Band (Canberra), Michael McQuaid (Melbourne) and the Dan McLean Hot Six (Canberra).

We look forward to sharing the pleasure of your company as we revisit the heyday of the Orient Express and we dance our way around the globe. Get ready to pack your dancing shoes and collect your first class tickets for this hugely popular four day lindy exchange!
