Dear people, you couldn't be any happier... We proudest announce our super special guest shellac DJ Mr. Mosquito Hopkins being part of this year's festivities!
And let us tell you: ‘Friedrich der Große’ clearly doesn’t need any further introduction.
So if you have never heard one of his all-nighters you surely have heard people raving about him – first and foremost Superheidi herself, who started a ‘DJ Mosquito Hopkins Groupies Group’ on Facebook.
What few people know: Besides owning this extraordinary, still growing shellac collection, Friedrich is a genius musician as well. He can swing a Cello like nobody else (besides mastering all kinds of other string instruments) AND he composes and arranges. As on top of that he is a very humble and pleasant human being, there might be talents besides all that we don’t even know…
But the important thing for you is that Mr. Hopkins will play one entire night from his shellac collection – with new pieces – which means he will start at quite high energy and will build up and up and up from there until we all have swollen feet…

New one...:
Let us introduce to you self-taught comic artist, DJ and castle newbie Andreas Michalke 'Mono Michalke':
Mr. Michalke will not only provide music from his huge collection of bad ass singles but he will also bring his pencils and draw everyone he will encounter at the castle to create a comic report out of it. And he will even do a comic booth with portraits for you to take home from the camp!
Andreas has has been collecting records since 1980 and has DJed for over 20 years. In the past years particularly for Swing dancers, amongst others at Herräng Dance Camp. He will bring a beautiful collection of shellac records to the castle, but he especially likes 45s – those small vinyl records. Just because they leave no space for bullshit: All killer – no filler.
Once you'll hear him DJ you will understand...

We will have a main DJ with super power! And here's what you should know about Superheidi - in the rare case you didn't dance to one of her DJ sets yet...
'Let’s keep it short & sweet: I’m here for all your swingin’ pleasure, to make you sweat, put that happy grin on your face and not allowing your feet a rest. If you heard my tunes at my stompin ground in the Netherlands or elsewhere (like Snowball, Lindy Shock, Herräng, All Balboa Weekend, Berlin/Hamburg/Barcelona Balboa Weekend, Studio Hop Summer Camp, Frim Fram Jam, Smokey Feet, Harbour Hop) you know I’m having all the fun in DJing for balboa, lindy hop and some blues. My music tastes are pretty broad (try me!), but tell you what, the faster tunes of the 1930s are really exciting!'

Say hello to your live band: The Vitality Jazz Band of London will make you shuffle until exhaustion - and even further.
Let JAZZ LIVES tell you more about them...:
'The Vitality 5 rocks!
The VITALITY FIVE are the real thing and the quintet has released its debut CD, which is a complete delight. They are a hot jazz band; their performances marry ferocious energy and precise delicacy. I know three of these Syncopators in person and will vouch for their Credentials of Hot. But mere words have their limitations, so here is audio-visual evidence:'
