SWAN VALLEY TOUR
See the sights and taste the delights of Perth’s own Swan Valley! Jump aboard the Hullabus as it winds through WA’s oldest wine region, taking you to wineries, breweries and eateries (aka cheese… lots of cheese). There will also be plenty of fun along the way. Seats are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. If this is your first time at Hullabaloo, if you’re from out of town and don’t know too many people, come along and make some new friends before we get stuck into the dancing part of the weekend. The Swan Valley Tour aims to be a relaxed and social affair, and the PSDS encourages the responsible consumption of alcohol.
Included are on the tour so far are: Lancaster Estate, the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, and the Cheese Barrel, with more to come.
When: Friday, 20 April 2018
10:00am – 4:00pm (times to be confirmed)
Where: the Swan Valley, 40ish mins from the Perth CBD
Swing dancers in Perth know one thing, and it’s this: it doesn’t matter what kind of week you’ve had, Mustang Fridays are where lindy hoppers go for loud bands and fast floors. A wonderful and treasured part of our scene, no weekend – let alone Hullabaloo – would be complete without a dance or three at the Mustang, so join us there and let’s ring in the weekend in true Perth style. The top section of the bar will be booked out for us, with some food platters and drink specials from 6:30pm. Come down for a drink and a chat before the band kicks off at 7.
Music: Adam Hall & The Velvet Playboys
Bar provided, no BYO.
LATE NIGHT #1
Spilling out into the streets on a Friday can mean all manner of things to the lindy hoppers of Perth – cosying in for a drink at a local small bar, or grabbing a bite at one of the many Northbridge eateries. On Hullabaloo weekend you can still do all of that; but when you’re done, head down through the streets and laneways, through Yagan Square or over the Horseshoe Bridge, to our amazing venue Huzzard Studios for the first late night of the weekend.
THE HULLABALOO BALL
Put on your most dazzling danceable finery and make a grand appearance at the Hullabaloo Ball. Perth Cabaret Collective are back to put on a show of outrageously good jazz’ and swingin tunes to raise the tone of the neighbourhood.
When: Saturday, 21 April 2018
8:00pm – 12 midnight
Where: Perth Town Hall, Corner of Hay Street & Barrack Street, Perth
Price: $60 online / $65 at the door
Dress: Formal. Time to break out your fanciest threads! Please no stiletto heels.
Music: Perth Cabaret Collective (+ DJs TBA)
Bar provided, no BYO.
BY MOONLIGHT (CREATURE COMFORTS)
Still charged with all that big band energy? Continue on dancing into the small hours of the morning with our night owl DJs.
Take off your ballgowns, suits and assorted finery and change into your comfiest clothing to boogie the night away. (But please, be considerate of your fellow dancers and don’t wear anything that you wouldn’t normally consider appropriate to dance in.)
THE HULLABALOO HOP
Join Perth’s own Kalamunda Youth Swing Band at perennial favourite North Perth Town Hall, where it’s all about the spectacle. This is the night for dancers to throw down and give it everything they’ve got in the Paul Verevis Memorial Jack and Jill mix and match competition, for what promises to be a night to remember.
When: Sunday, 22 April 2018
7:30pm – 12 midnight
Where: North Perth Town Hall
Price: $50 online / $55 at the door
Dress: Please no stiletto heels

Dance until the sun comes up! Well, almost, that won’t be until 6:46. But the point is, that this is the late night to end all late nights, as mornings. Almost.
THE LAST HURRAH
It’s the last night of Hullabaloo and we’re sending you off in style. The Last Hurrah, the Final Fling, the post-penultimate celebration. The last night for you to let loose and swing out hard. Have at it.
Music: Jessie Gordon & Friends
