Wow! After a year long break it felt reaaaaally good to be BACK! The past 5 days absolutely exceeded our expectations and the 11th edition of Ljubljana SweetSwing Festival exploded in crazy jazzed-up joy!
As always, no one can create such magic alone and many, many ‘thank yous’ are in order to everyone that helped create this event, starting with:
::: our amazing instructors: Alice Mei, Felix Berghäll, Isabella Gregorio, Jenny Thomas, Moe Sakan, Pontus Persson, Remy Kouakou Kouame and Vincenzo Fesi, thank you for sharing your inspiration and knowledge
::: our dear Peter Loggins for MCing the night away and sharing with us his experience and knowledge of dance, history and life
::: our hot and swingin’ bands The Knights Of Rhythm, Bényei Tamás és a Gramophonia Hot Jazz Orchestra and Hornsgatan Ramblers for keeping our feet moving all night long;
::: DJ Frida Häggström Gerdt and DJ Martin13 for some seriously badass rhythms and tunes;
::: our friendly and hard working volunteers, thank you for all your help and happy vibes;
::: our photographer Nejc Balantič and our videographer Sergej Semibratov for capturing our fun times on camera
::: our partners Grand Hotel Union, Hotel Park – Urban&Green and Cankarjev dom for providing the most beautiful dance floors in Ljubljana;
::: our long term sponsor Cockta for the yummy free drinks to help us keep on kickin’
And last but not least, THANK YOU attendees for coming and swinging hard with us! We hope to see you again next time. Until then: a sweet ‘over and out!’ from the organizers of Ljubljana Sweet Swing Festival.
