Event Details

The Summer Swing Smackdown at the State Theatre Centre - Doors open 6pm; Show starts 7pm

The Summer Swing Smackdown is one of the most exciting music and dance productions to grace Australia’s stages in recent years. After sell-out shows in Perth and Melbourne in 2012 & 2013, HMS PopUp Productions is bringing this spectacular show to Perth again to kick off the swing dance season in early 2014.

In an epic four hour dance and music event, four premier Australian swing bands perform song-for-song in this thrilling boxing ring battle. Dance teams from Perth’s highly skilled dance schools will also compete for the coveted Summer Swing Smackdown Champion’s trophy through stunning dance demonstrations, to the live sounds of their chosen band.

Three of Perth’s best and brightest, The Hammer Nine, The Darling Buds of May and Smackdown virgins Ensemble Formidable will meet the infamous Lucky Seven head-on, to face-off in this incredible showcase.

The inaugural Summer Swing Smackdown, in 2012 sold out two weeks before opening and tickets became a rare commodity as music lovers and dancers alike vied for precious spaces at the table of Australia’s Swing royalty.

Dance demonstrations, saucy cigarette girls and the crowd pleasing antics of MC Magnus Danger Magnus, make this once a year spectacular the swing scene’s night of nights. Throw on your gloves, throw off your robe and let’s get ready to rumble!
