We've already informed you a while ago that the DENOVALI SWINGFEST ESSEN gets two cute siblings in 2013: DENOVALI SWINGFEST LONDON and BERLIN. All details regarding the London edition are available in this newsletter:
From now on you can preorder your ticket for the London edition happening on April 20 and 21 2013 at Scala, Loonon. The price is 28 Pounds (34 Euro) for a Saturday ticket, 28 Pounds (34 Euro) for a Saturday ticket and 56 Pounds (68 Euro) for a festival ticket (due to the high production costs of this Swingfest event there will be no discounted tickets for both days unfortunately).
