LA Shag Festival 2019
Burbank, California, United States
Friday 12th to Sunday 14th of April 2019
Duration: 3 days
It's time to get excited for the 2nd Annual LA Shag Festival coming April 12th through 14th, 2019 in Burbank, California! Registration is now open so be sure to register soon to guarantee your spot. We have added a new LA Style Lindy track this year with our local LA heroes! Lindy classes will be in the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday while the Shag classes will be in the mornings, so it is possible to take both the Lindy and Shag classes as they don't conflict. We have added more bands, more vendors and more space! This year will be bigger and better because we are taking over the entire Convention Center! Below you will see a brief summary of what we have in store for the weekend.
