Since their inception in 2005, Dance Gavin Dance has steadily built a huge cult following. Blending complex instrumentation with huge poppy choruses and raw, aggressive screams, they have fathered an entire genre of their own characterized by their signature combination of elements of post-hardcore, math-rock, progressive-rock, and post-rock. This has become aptly named \’Swancore\’ after the band\’s virtuoso guitarist, Will Swan and his record label Blue Swan Records.
This was the inspiration for the first-ever Swanfest which took place in 2019 at City National Grove of Anaheim. Headlined and curated by Dance Gavin Dance, the event was a phenomenal sell-out success, seeing over 7000 fans in attendance – a rare feat for a festival in its first year.
SWANFEST was due to return for a second year in 2020, bigger and better and this time in Dance Gavin Dance\’s hometown of Sacramento, CA. Sadly, the pandemic meant the event had to be called off. Now, after a long 2-year wait, Dance Gavin Dance and SWANFEST will finally land at Heart Health Park, Sacramento, CA on Saturday, April 25th, 2022 with a stacked line-up and a big party vibe. Don\’t miss the celebration, get your tickets now.
SWANFEST will kick off Dance Gavin Dance\’s previously announced Spring 2022 tour that will see the band – joined by Memphis May Fire, Volumes and Moon Tooth – hit a further 18 cities to end in Birmingham, AL on May 20th. Tickets and VIP packages are available now from
