THEME PARTY & BAND BATTLE

Be dressed for the occasion according to the proposed theme and be ready to immortalize the best picture to our original photocall each year. Sailors, pirates and Hellzappopin’ have already gone through the Swim Out, and this year it’s still a mystery!

In the heart of Palafrugell, the party will take place at the Bobila Vella, an amazing place that will host the opening party. Old Bòbila is the building that housed the furnace black cork oldest in Spain. With more than 500 m2 to dance, the dance floor will become a dialogue between dancers and musicians. During the night we will enjoy an amazing Band Battle, with two great formations like KC Octet & Juli Aymí and Big Swing Shot.

The Jack & Jill competitions, teachers presentation, etc. will take place at the event. In addition, we’ll be able to refresh ourselves at the bar or wander among vintage stalls. Admission is open to the general public and those attending the festival have the transportation from the Albatros House to the Bòbila into different buses included. This year the shuttle service back to the Albatros House, will start earlier for those who want to return earlier.

BIG BAND NIGHT

The most glamorous night of the festival, the finery of the attendees to relive the spirit of 30’s and 40’s at the Old Bòbila. To fill the room with good music and remember the real Bigs Bands of the time, we’ll have among us the Barcelona Jazz Orchestra, a renowned big band consisting of more than 15 musicians directed by Dani Alonso.

Exhibitions, competitions, social dancing and much more will take place during the night. But we know how hungry we can get after a few swing outs, so we will have a creperie that will turn you on with sweet and salad creps. And at the break moments, you have the chance to visit the clothes and dance shoes stalls. Admission is open to the general public and those attending the festival have the transportation from the Albatros House to the Bòbila into different buses included. This year the shuttle service back to the Albatros House, will start earlier for those who want to return earlier.
