The Glasgow Getdown is a fantastic weekend overflowing with Lindy Hop and Blues social dancing. It ran for the first time in 2015, and was, as the Glasgow vernacular has it, pure dead brilliant (but don’t take our word for it, check out some of the feedback we got). So of course, we had no choice but to do it all again. But bigger and even better. So, if you were there last time, we’d love to have you back, and if you missed out, man – you don’t want to miss out again.
Showcasing some of Glasgow’s beautiful historic buildings, we invite you lucky souls to come and share in 2 days and 3 jam-packed nights of dancing, laughing, drinking and partying in one of the friendliest and most musical cities in the world.
Over the weekend of the 3rd-5th June 2016 you can Getdown to live music from authentic Jazz bands blasting out our favourite classics, as well as contemporary talent bringing you Blues and Swing with a twist. With events and activities all weekend, including some awesome and varied taster classes, you’ll wonder why you never came to Glasgow sooner.
And if you can stay a bit longer, we’d love to show you some of the Scottish countryside on our amazing Monday day out!
Some are born to Blues. Some just love to Lindy. For you talented folk who cross the divide, you’re gonna have some tough decisions ahead – what to miss out on!
So save the date, book your holidays, kiss your mum goodbye, unleash your inner unicorn and come to where the wild things dance.
