He already spoke about this years ago at the swing festival in Ljubljana, and now all swing music and dance fans will be able to listen to him again. Peter Winqvist Loggins is a legend of swing music and dancing and if anyone knows the most about it, to say the least, it’s him.

On Sunday evening before the dance evening, he will share his knowledge of the history of jazz music and dance with us, everything that marked the 20s, 30s, and 40s of the last century. The lecture will be organized as a round table and will be held in English in Zorica on Sunday, September 10, 2023, at 8 p.m.

Also this year we have 5 parties for you. Different venues and even one after-party. Don’t miss it.

Thursday – Zorica, Kersnikova 4
Friday – Hotel Union, Miklošičeva 1 or Nazorjeva 1
Saturday – Hotel Union, Miklošičeva 1 or Nazorjeva 1
Sunday – Zorica, Kersnikova 4
Monday – Kavarna Drama, Erjavčeva cesta 1

DJ TOBY will play some music between band breaks and on other days.

When dancing, music is everything.

So we’ve picked crème de la crème for you. Maybe you don’t know them yet, but we are sure you’ll want to hear them again.

For the main two parties on Friday and Saturday in Hotel Union we will have Icy Isabella Jazz Band. Slovenian-based they are professional jazz world-renowned musicians and have played for us recently on one of our dance evenings in Ljubljana. And boy were we the happiest happy feet ever.

And then on Sunday evening, the Pickpocket swingers that were already with us last year will make us dance our hearts out for the final big evening of 2023 HaniBal. Yes, there will be one last dance evening on Monday, but not with live music.

Can’t wait for the music to kick in!

Mix’n’match (Jack’n’Jill) prelims will happen on Friday and Finals will happen on Saturday’s Gala. Fast Feet on Sunday evening.
