It’s the 20th Anniversary of Swingin’ Groningen this year and that has to be celebrated! The festival was rebooted 3 years ago after having been on hiatus for a couple of years and -after a modest start- is starting to really grow again. Mixing wel known names with new talent is showing to be a good success. June 13th was the opening evening of the festival.
After Friday’s program Swingin’ Groningen was far from over. In the afternoon there were performances in various locations in the city, entertaining the shoppers with lots of music and in the evening it was back to the four stages I covered the day before. The afternoon I spent shopping and not shooting so no photos of thos gigs I’m afraid, but I did try my best to cover as much of the evening as I could whilst also enjoying the performances.
The 19th edition of Swingin’ Groningen is held this year. Quite impressive considering the 5 years the festival was on hold. It got a ‘reboot’ last year and thankfully they’re back to stay so this year Groningen was swinging again for a good three days.
