Code of Conduct:

The Melbourne Swing Festival operates under Swing Patrol's official Code of Conduct. We urge you to familiarise yourself with it before you register. If at any time during the event you feel unsafe or witness inappropriate behaviour, there will be a dedicated staff member at each venue to go to for help. Let's all work together to make the event a fun and positive experience for everyone.

New Pass Options:

Due to overwhelming demand, we have created new pass options.


After much deliberation and exploring our options, we have settled on a creative solution to be able to offer more places in the workshops and at the entire event.

We have created new passes called ‘Gilded Gold Pass’ and ‘Socialite Pass’.


These are both the same as their namesakes but with no access to the Sunday night main event "Groovie Movie"; Gilded Gold being a Gold Pass without the Sunday night event, and Socialite being a Social pass without the Sunday night event. Note, these passes will still get you into the Sunday Late Night, so there will still be dancing to be done!

What do you get with each of these passes?

  • Gilded Gold Pass (Equivalent to a Gold pass) - This gets you access to all the workshops and most of the socials, but excludes access to the Sunday Social "Groovie Movie".

  • Socialite Pass (Equivalent to a Social pass) - This gets you access to all social events, excluding the Sunday Social "Groovie Movie".

Call out to Leads: 

We still need more leads to help with evening out of numbers.


Follows please note: 

We still do not have too many spots left for follows, particularly in level 3 and 4. When these streams sell out, that’s it, until someone cancels. Therefore, we need to start a new waiting list (more like a notification list), where you will get a notification if a pass becomes available, for instance, if someone cancels their pass at the last minute. If you are still interested in going on this list, please sign up here: [email protected]

Existing Sold Out Passes:
If you want to do EVERYTHING, go with the GOLD pass which includes all workshop and social events. Then just swing in and out of the festival as you wish. 

If you'd like to do workshops ONLY, you can purchase one of the WORKSHOP passes (Silver, Saturday Day or Sunday Day) described below. 

If you'd like to attend the social events ONLY, you can purchase a SOCIAL pass. There will be limited tickets available for cash at the door at the social events, but buying a Social Pass secures a spot and saves you money. 



Casual Pay at the Door:
If you decide to attend the social events on the weekend casually i.e. picking and choosing and just turning up, you do not need to register or purchase any pass. Simply come along and pay at the door on the night.
