Barcelona becomes European swing capital this month as BarSWINGona celebrates its 17th edition. Lindyhop and swing dancers from far afield will be meeting to show some off some good ole razzle-dazzle in venues across town. The Festival holds workshops, competitions and lots of parties where everyone can try their luck. Things kick off in Gràcia on the 16th with a swing parade through the streets and a party at the Centre Artesania Tradicionarius. From the 17th to the 20th evening parties will turn the Casino d’Aliança in Poblenou into a scene from 1920s Chicago with couples skipping through the ballroom to a live band. And, to close the Festival on the 20th, head down to the Pl. Reial for a free-for-all open air dance party.
