Enter into the theatrical world where circus sights dazzle bright lights to the sound of Electro-Swing. Straight in front of you is the big top, a 1920's band plays centre stage while dancers jive, and the circus show is in full swing - you have arrived at Maui Waui Festival.
A weekend of wonders is what's on offer at Maui Waui, with bands from all over the world, Electro Swing, Folk, Country, Gypsy Swing, Reggae and Dance music. The storytellers entertain the kids with old fables and tales, stories of giants and whales. Surprising acts wander the site on stilts and bikes and some wearing tights, impromptu bands play throughout the day and as night time falls the entertainment livens up, the Electric Swing Circus are going to play - A six piece Electro Swing troupe that fuses cool 20’s swing with fiery electro beats in a dazzling live show. Fronted by the sassy Sisters of Swing with the addition of live drums, fretless bass, gyspy jazz guitar, keys synths and swinging samples. The Electric Swing Circus hotfoots it through their own unique blend of Electro Swing.
The Cabaret tent is open and showcasing local talents with original shows, who knows what you'll find in here. The tent is full and the kids are in bed, the burlesque show begins - these girls have style! Many of the walkabout acts you'll see in the day will play their main show in here. Slip in amongst the velvet curtains and tassels, admire the artists and the audience for everyone here is dressed up!
Finally we have the DJ lounge, releasing new labels on the spot and revisiting old time tunes chopped and changed, everything you hear has an uplifting beat in the DJ tent. Daytime country DJ Earl Harlem brings his his expert knowledge and passion for vintage dance music. The DJ tent is a themed crime scene keeping you dancing into the evening with Max Pashm - the king of Electro Swing, his sound is a unique blend of Electro Swing, Balkan Beats, Klezmer and Gypsy Electronica with blistering club beats.
