Opening Oxford Lindy Exchange 2020 for us will be the Jack Calloway Dance Orchestra. An ever popular presence on the Bristol Swing scene, Jack is a superbly talented and charismatic performer and band leader whose passion for swing, jazz, and dance is in every note he plays.

Jack and the Orchestra are returning to Oxford after a memorable performance at the Roaring 2.0s in 2019 and we are very excited to welcome them for their OLX debut.

Our Saturday night band are the Jim Wynn Swing Orchestra. Hailing from Birmingham, this 16-piece big band play authentic swing from the 1930s and 40s from the likes of Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman & Fletcher Henderson.  The Orchestra have been a hugely popular at many Lindy Hop festivals across the UK and we can't wait to welcome them to Oxford for the first time. We will have the full 16 piece orchestra, at OLX so you can bet that their big band sound will be raising the roof of The Oxford Union!


The band for our Sunday Tea Dance will need little introduction. Palace Avenue Swing are highly regarded as one of the best Swing Bands in the UK, and performed to to great acclaim at the many UK and international Lindy Hop festivals. 

Palace Avenue got awesome feedback for their sensational performance at OLX in 2018 and we could think of nobody better to close our 10th edition for us!
