Swing Upon a Time

Palazzo dei Congressi
Viale Romagnosi 13
Salsomaggiore Terme

Once upon a time, there was a magical place, where those who loved music could meet with those who loved to dance, to live together unforgettable days, with gala parties in evening dress, exciting courses, brass instruments, pianos, and walks under the leafy branches of spring, wearing the best shoes to dance without thoughts.

What is the happy ending? It is that all this is actually reality, and it is called SWING UPON A TIME!

Now in its fifth edition, here it comes again the international festival signed Parma Lindy Hoppers, in the incomparable twentieth-century setting of Salsomaggiore Terme: a real blast from the past where every enthusiast and nostalgic for Swing Era will feel like in a fairytale with a retro taste, spending a weekend among friends, exciting classes, performances and parties in stunning locations. Also, forget about using a car…. everything is reachable just strolling down the tree-lined streets of the town.
