Maui Waui, the UK’s first ever two-day electro swing festival is back for its second year at Theberton on September 6 and 7.

Promoters Silas Rayner and Oliver Platt promise a weekend of music, cabaret, circus and performing arts from around the world set in a wild north Suffolk location. The festival has expanded to three nights and two days headlined by the Alabama 3, the acid-house-country band from Brixton, well known for their soundtrack to The Sopranos.

“Electro swing has become more and more popular and all our music evenings have been sell-outs. Following the huge success of last year’s event we intend to make the Maui Waui Festival an annual happening,” said Silas.

Electro Swing combines the Swing sounds of the 1920s and 1930s, such as Cab Calloway and Benny Goodman, with modern day dance production techniques, incorporating loops, samples, melodies and styles from the swing, jazz and big band eras. It’s a musical fusion that brings people of all ages together to share the fun.

Also at Maui Waui will be the Max Pashm Swing Band, Sweet Life Society, Sugar Foot Stomp, Sweetbeats and Vagaband. A full weekend ticket (including camping) is £55 and day tickets are £30. Free entry for under 12s.
