Music Festival in Dewars Conformance Center, Glovers Street, Perth
Vamos! 2018
Friday May 04 2018 to Sunday May 06 2018 | Start Time Approximately 17:00
Vamos! 2018 VAMOS! returns… This new event was added to Perthshire’s music calendar in May 2017 and is back for 2018!

The event is the arrival of a new type of music weekend with the travel and music industries joining forces to bring a live American Style music extravaganza featuring artistes from the UK, Europe and the USA.

Rock and roll, country, blues and soul, rockabilly, tribute artistes and more will be performing at Vamos! which next year is being held at Dewars Centre in Perth on the Bank Holiday Weekend 4th – 6th of May 2018. Although moving to a large indoor venue for next year – VAMOS will still feature multiple stages and host around 40 acts over the weekend.

2017 saw the likes of PJ Proby, Los Pacaminos featuring Paul Young, Johnny Lee Memphis as Elvis Presley, Eve Graham of the New Seekers, Marmalade, The Pacemakers and around 40 other GREAT acts appearing in Perth, and 2018 is set to do the same!

Laughingly nicknamed “Glastonbury for Geriatrics” the organisers are keen to promote travel to North America – as the States are famed the world over for their music and VAMOS brings a taste of that to the UK.

The weekend kicks off on the 4th with a party night featuring music from the 1950s-1980s. There will be dancing and jiving to hits made famous by the likes of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley and country hits from artistes such as Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash and George Jones.

Saturday and Sunday includes a full programme of live American Style music with top artistes performing throughout the day and night.

Prices are £209 for three nights bed and breakfast in a Perth hotel, & weekend pass, £75 for an Early Bird weekend pass, £25 for an Early Bird Friday ticket and £35 for Early Bird Saturday and Sunday tickets.

Swingamajig
Sunday May 06 2018 to Monday May 07 2018 | Start Time Approximately 14:00
Swingamajig SWINGAMAJIG FESTIVAL RETURNS TO BIRMINGHAM FOR ITS SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR.

Immerse yourself in a vintage wonderland tucked amongst the railway arches of Digbeth; seven stages curated and produced by the team behind Shambala Festival and Brum’s own Electric Swing Circus. A mind-blowing explosion of sound and colour - expect street art and performance, visual installations and crazy stage sets that revitalise the city’s industrial quarter in unimaginable ways.

The diverse musical line up reflects the famed multiculturality of the second city; from gypsy swing and jazz to Balkan beats, dubstep DJs to bass heavy rhythms and of course a healthy dose of traditional and electro swing. 2018’s headliners include Slamboree, Electric Swing Circus, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys, Swing Punks and returning Swingamajig veterans, the 16-piece swing band, Jim Wynn Swing Orchestra.

It’s not just about music. Swingamajig’s performance line up is packed to the rafters with sultry burlesque acts, mind-bending magicians, world-class cabaret and circus daredevils, internationally acclaimed dance acts, all manner of walkabout performance and incredible art installations.

Swingamajig has once again teamed up with Birmingham dance school, The Swing Era, to run a series of lindy hop and solo jazz workshops the day before the festival, allowing people of all abilities to dust off their dancing shoes and practice their moves in time for the main event. Additionally, those who have always dreamt of running away to join the circus can hone their big-top talents with an Aerial Circus Skills workshop, run in partnership with Circus MASH.

Start festival season nice and early, amongst a 4,000 strong crowd of devoted, fun loving, party-goers who span the generations, dress to impress and create an inclusive atmosphere where almost anything goes. As ever, Swingamajig promises one hell of a party.

They’ve proved their mettle on bills with Thunder and John Mayall, triumphed as far afield as Mumbai and taken the roof off major venues from the 02 Glasgow to Wembley Arena.
