What’s up ?

Dear lindy hop enthusiasts,

many of you are wondering what’s up with the barswingona festival this year (20th edition) and this message is intended to clear up all your concerns.

FIRST,

the festival will happen at the planned dates, EASTER WEEK, meaning from April 13th to April 17th but there will not be a whole week package as originally announced.

SECOND,

barSWINGona will be an exchange instead of a festival and we leave the 20th edition for next year 2018. Registration will be open on Tuesday February 14th.

fun

THIRD

the major difference from our usual festival is that barSWINGona will NOT include daytime workshop tracks (with classes by international teachers) but there will be parties, open classes and BCN experience activities.

The full barSWINGona’17 pass include (all for the unbelievable price of 75€* -early bird- ):

  • Amazing parties from Thursday evening to Sunday evening (4 major parties).
  • After hour parties with live music by the sea (after every major party).
  • Daytime dances and parades with live bands culminated with the traditional outdoors closure on Monday morning at “Plaça Reial”.
  • Social activities in various landmarks of the enchanting Barcelona, including tourist walks and visits, wine tasting, talks, etc. and maybe some surprise?

FOURTH,

we’d like to apologize for such a late notice in this major change of barSWINGona contents. We’ve been trying till the very last minute to do anything to avoid this change, but unfortunately it has not been possible. We wanted to have an outstanding 20th edition with an outstading line up of professional teachers (including 6 couple of top, famous dancers) but that has just been impossible, partly due to the current problems of incompatibility among members of the professional lindy hop community, as well as the late notice of cancellation that we received from some names that were already comitted to barSWINGona.

This price will not include extras such as meals.
