About Us

Swingin' Cadi?

The idea was born from a group of hoppers named “We Swing Pirineu” association who hold classes, courses, jams and parties and who have now embarked on the magnificent adventure of creating their second edition of a festival.

Well, our thought is based on creating a social event in a magnificent environment full of nature. We want to generate group cohesion, that includes activities in the natural environment, has a high quality of classes with fun and professional teachers and, of course, that makes you enjoy Swing music. Concerts with live bands and 1 Dj party.

We are mountain people who love to dance! That is why we have thought of combining our passion for dancing with our impressive natural environment, in this case at the foot of the foothills and the heart of the Pyrenees, the Cadí.

On the one hand, we offer the classic combination of being able to take classes with internationally recognized teachers and being able to enjoy different “Tasters” and concerts with the renowned band “Toulouse Hot Club”.

On the other hand, for those who prefer to relax during the day and dance at night, we want to offer you the opportunity to enjoy activities in the natural environment, mountain gastronomy and the fresh air that is breathed in these environments. With the different activities we have for you: rafting, interpretive hiking, canoeing, Scavenger hunt, meal tasting…

Because in We Swing Pirineu association we believe in the importance of generating social ties that last over time and enjoying the present. Well, we are convinced that dancing and activities in nature are healthy and very enriching on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.

Come and enjoy Swing and the mountains in a unique environment!
