AlohaDear Dancers,


with this first part of information we want to start countdown!
- the 6th edition of Dragon Swing Festival is getting closer and closer, so let's see where we will party this year.

Pre-party: for those who will be in Krakow on Tuesday we prepare warm-up party at 9 p.m. in Hostel Giraffe (Krowoderska 31 Street). It will be warm, cosy and open for everybody :)

Wednesday: the first official party of the festival starts at 8 p.m. in Main Hall in DDK (Dom Kultury Kolejarza – św. Filipa 6 Street) with taster class, then the official opening and we'll let the DJs do their job! For all blues lovers we open the blues room at 11 p.m. at the second floor. Notice! You can register for the festival at the beginning of the party: registration desk is at the entrance to the Main Hall.

Thursday: taster class starts at 7:45 pm, then we dance in Main Hall (DDK) and blues in Orchestra Room (from 11 pm). Don't be late for live band sets – at 11:00 pm Leliwa Jazz Band takes over the scene! At the beginning of the party you can still register at the registration desk in DDK.

Friday: last year this new venue – Stara Zajezdnia (św. Wawrzyńca 12 Street) really rocked! This year you will also have an opportunity to dance in a gigantic, beautiful, pre-war tramway depot and also to try a delicious locally made craft beer :) We start from 9:30 p.m. At 11.30 p.m. the great Jazz Band Ball Orchestra will start to make your feet swing!

Saturday: the big night! As always, main party of our fesitval will take place in Wieliczka Salt Mine - in the Warsaw Chamber , 125 meters underground! Party starts at 8 p.m. Remember – we provide you the transport there and back, you will get more details soon. Any surprises this year? Of course! This year we will have two bands playing for you - Leliwa Jazz Band and first time in Poland – Django Sisters and their Boy Band. They will rock this salty cave hard!

Sunday: we are not slowing down. In the Main Hall (DDK) we are going to swing hard and in Orchestra Room (2nd floor) we are preparing something different – the change of an atmosphere :) Theme for this year is Hawaiian Party! Take your coconut drinks and hula skirts and come to relax...

Stay tuned for more news!
