Description

The perfect end to the summer season - Electric Swing Circus plaing live with support til 3am from DJ Chris Tofu MBE and Twisted residents playing an eclectic mix of vintage remix and beyond.........

The Electric Swing Circus is a live 6-piece fusion of saucy swing and stomping electro beats. Drawing influence from1920’s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding, multi-generational audience.

The ESC’s sound is a powerful combination of electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show.

The band are active in the electro-swing scene, running their own annual festival, Swingamajig, and regular club night, Hot Club de Swing, as well as curating acts for events and stages across Europe.

The band first formed in 2011, with their preview EP, Penniless Optimist, released in September that year since they have toured across 4 continents, produced two full length albums and are one of the most exciting bands on the live circuit.

Ladies and Gentlemen, hold onto your hats. The circus is coming to town!


Established in 1995 DJ Chris Tofu has become a pioneer of Vintage Remix and the UK Festival scene, sharing his obsession with all things remixed and raucous with jumping crowds across the globe! From Glastonbury to Istanbul this musical maverick is constantly exploring, discovering and creating new sounds and new experiences, mixing up the formula for good vibe pie!

He’s a true believer that DJ’ing is as much about “vibe” and communicating with an audience as endless technical skill. I just love music that remixes the ancient and the new. Sometimes that makes me really obscure, sometimes pioneering but whatever happens, the audience generally gets it.”

Tofu has two lives; as a world renowned DJ and as the programmer and director of thousands of events and artists in some of the most legendary clubs and festival stages and even whole festivals, providing him with the canvas to try all these crazy new remixed discoveries. Enticing the crowds to jump over barriers (both physical and metaphorical) and get down to new and unusual sounds is the main Tofu goal.

He has been involved in hundreds of festivals with the official title of Chief Vibes Master at the likes of Glastonbury (where he runs Shangri La and programmed for Lost Vagueness), Bestival, Edinburgh Fest , Sydney Festival, Revolution Festival, Boomtown, Lattitude, Lowlands, Wilderness, Shambala and Secret Garden Party to name a few…
