Four unmissable days of fun on the notes of American music and culture of the 40s and 50s.
The contagious energy of Summer Jamboree, Europe's largest international festival of the culture of America in the 40s and 50s, conquers Switzerland, arriving for the first time on the shores of Lake Lugano. The Festival, organized by Summer Jamboree, is promoted by Lugano Region with the patronage of the City of Lugano to entertain the public from 09 to 12 June 2022.
The program of the Festival includes four days of extraordinary concerts with free admission - two stages set up in Piazza della Riforma and Boschetto Ciani (Parco Ciani) - where international artists who are writing the history of Rock'n'Roll in all its musical forms will perform, bringing an overwhelming wave of music, dancing and fun.
Alongside the live concerts there will be Record hop in various corners of the city with the best DJs from all over the world, plus the Burlesque Show and Cabaret. Between Piazza Manzoni and Riva Albertolli the Vintage Market will take shape with modern antiques and collectible memorabilia, clothing, shoes, accessories, vintage items and reproductions, but also street food & beverage areas. Riva Albertolli will also host an Oldtimers Park with pre-1969 American cars and a Barber Shop. To learn to move the first steps there will be free lessons of Swing and Rock'n'Roll, and the after-festival to continue dancing all night long. At the Centro Esposizioni will also be held the Summer Jamboree on the Lake Dance Camp: a full immersion dedicated to learning the dances, with some of the best dancers on the international scene as teachers.
Finally, from 02 to 19 June 2022, in the prestigious rooms of Villa Ciani, will be set up the photographic exhibition immersive Rock'n'Roll is a State of the Soul. The exhibition tells the essence of what, through the eyes of the Summer Jamboree, was and is the Rock'n'Roll. In particular, thanks to the great photographers who were able to capture memorable shots of happiness experienced during the first 20 years of what has become over time the largest festival of its kind in Europe.
