Canberräng is Canberra’s festival of swing and one of Australia’s longest running and best-loved swing dance exchanges. In 2019 join us from 1-4 August as we celebrate the greatest hits of swing.

With ten events powered by incredible live bands and Australia’s top swing DJs, Canberräng: The Greatest Hits is set to be an epic compilation paying tribute to the iconic music, moments and people that have shaped swing dance through the years.

Featuring headline acts Professor Cunningham & His Old School (direct from NYC) and the sublime jazz vocalist Hetty Kate, don’t miss what is sure to be four unforgettable days of social dancing! 


We will be dancing at ten great Canberra venues including:

  • Albert Hall
  • Hotel Kurrajong
