The biggest ever quayside dance in Stavanger!

Join the quayside dance!  On the second day of the Ships Festival we will be arranging the largest quayside dance ever seen in Stavanger.

A Children´s Disco will kick off the event with music from House of Dance between 13.00 & 15.00, followed by a long list of artists.

“Stavanger has a long and rich maritime history, but as far as our historic sources can tell, there has never been a tradition of quayside dancing here. Many dances were organised in Stavanger in the 50´s and 60´s, but these mostly took place indoors. The quayside dance was more well known in Ryfylke. This will change this year”, smiles Project Manager, Knud Helge Robberstad.

Large dance floor

In order to add the quayside dance to the cultural program, a large dance floor was required.

“The area around Tollbodbrygga, where Stage 2 (Scene 2) is located, provides us with a huge dance floor.  There will be the opportunity to swing all day long and into the evening”, days the Project Manager.

The dancing will be led by:

1300-1500 Children´s Disco – House of Dance
1500-1600 Stavanger Tangoverksted (Argentinian Tango
1600-1700 LOVE (formerly Daniel Engen & Hugin Band)
1700-1800 Song og spelkorlaget
1800-1900 Bryne Storband (Big Band)
1900-2000 Tony & the Swing Blues
