Swing Riot

A festival was born in 2015

Dunedin has had a small, transient lindy hop scene since it started classes at Otago University Students Association under the name of Vintage and Swing Society back in 2006. Swing Riot was born out of this scene - to differenciate itself from the student group and broaden its reach. It wasn't until 2015 though, that it had its first festival event! The Vintage Street Swing Festival.
