Midsummer Night Swing 2018

May 29, 2018
Swing into the summer season with Lincoln Center's popular outdoor dance party at Damrosch Park: Midsummer Night Swing! This year, the series will begin on Tuesday, June 26 and the fun will continue through Saturday, July 14. 

Each year, programming includes a number of talented and dance-inspiring bands. 
Guests can enjoy jazz, swing, salsa, and more and even learn dance moves before the music starts with professional group instructors. This year's performers include: Sisterhood of Swing, this year's season opener on Wednesday, June 26--a tribute to the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, the first integrated, all-female swing band; Heybale, a honky-tonk western swing band on Saturday, July 7; and the Brianna Thomas Band (a Winter's Eve alum), performing jump blues and jazz music on Wednesday, July 11. 
 
There are a total of 16 performances in this year's schedule. Click here to see the event calendar. For more information on tickets and season passes, click here.
