Canberräng is Canberra’s festival of swing and one of Australia’s longest running and best-loved swing dance exchanges. In 2022 we are back after a couple of years in isolation, so join us from 4-7 August.
With five events powered by incredible live bands and some top swing DJs, Canberräng this year is set to be an epic comeback for swing exchanges around the Country.
Featuring headline acts, the sublime jazz vocalist Hetty Kate (France), Liam Budge & his band with some of the best muso's Canberra offers, (Liam Budge previously New York) and someone who needs no introduction, Andrew Dickeson Blue Rhythm Band (Sydney). Don’t miss what is sure to be three days of unforgettable live music and social dancing!
We will be dancing at five great Canberra venues including:
- Griffith Neighbourhood Centre, Griffith - Thursday Night
- O'Donnell Youth Centre, Turner - Friday Night
