What time does the festival begin?
We open at 2pm on Sunday, April 30th 2017 and the live acts/performances start straight away. As we go into the evening we will shift the focus over to our host of talented DJs, so if you want to catch the live acts/performances then make sure you’re around during the day. We will keep the party going until 2am, after which you’re all invited to our official After Party, which carries on until the sun comes up at 6am! (After Party tickets are just £5 for Swingamajig Festival ticket holders).
How do I get there?
The Festival shall be held in the heart of the Digbeth, Birmingham’s cultural capital, at the legendary Rainbow Venues. For those using a SatNav to get here just key in the postcode B9 4AG.

Will there be food and drink?
There will a huge variety of delicious food and drink on offer at Swingamajig. With such a long and action packed day, so we wouldn’t want you going hungry! We’ve got delicious, reasonably priced organic food and yummy veggy/vegan options too for all our herbivore friends and on top of this we have free-from-food for anyone with particular allergies.
Food will be served from the moment we open, up until 1am Monday morning.
Drinks, alcoholic and otherwise will be provided, with a choice of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails at reasonable prices.
What can I bring with me?
Unfortunately we will not allow any food or drink to be brought in from outside the event. If you plan on smuggling in things in that you shouldn’t have (tut tut) these items will be taken off you and you may be asked to leave the event.
What should I wear?
We don’t have an official dress code, but you will find plenty of top hats and flapper dresses worn by some of the most beautiful ladies and dapper gents around. Come in whatever you will feel most comfortable in.
In any case, however you decide to dress, make sure you bring your dancing shoes!
“What if it rains?” Well, with our new site there will be plenty of rain cover so we can continue rain or shine. We have however booked the sun, so expect the weather to be glorious! There will be a cloakroom where you will be able to leave your coats and bags so you can dance freely.
