Swing in Mirepoix

A festival of conviviality

Swing à Mirepoix is 3 days of Jazz, Swing and good humor in the heart of the medieval city! During the Easter weekend, this festival kicks off the calendar of events with a rich program of “IN” and “OFF” concerts to get all generations moving. Popular, festive and cultural, with great international artists on stage, this is an event not to be missed!

Spotlight on

the 2023 edition

The 26th edition of Swing is all about innovation!

The concerts will take place exclusivelyunder the Mirepoix hall for the comfort of the audience and to enhance the heart of the bastide. The space, equipped with hermetically sealed marquees, has seen its capacity increased for the occasion to accommodate all the festival’s concerts. During the 3 days of festivities, the square will be animated from 11:00 to 23:00 non-stop. Friendly catering will be provided by the buvette steamer (selling drinks, plates of grilled meats or fish )!

All the OFF programming will be free to access, with the spotlight on local and regional bands who will perform under the covered market or wander around the square to set the whole city alight!

As the evening draws in, the headliners of the IN will take to the stage…

Focus on IN

This year’s line-up is nothing short of exceptional. Three bands take you on a musical journey of a lifetime:

🎶 SATURDAY 08 APRIL AT 9:00 PM: CAT AND THE MINT

New European revelation, the charismatic young German with the most recognizable voice – CAT LEE KING – accompanied by the finest French rhythm’n’blues – THE MINT – passionately plays a repertoire strongly influenced by the music of the 40s-50s.

🎶 SUNDAY 09 APRIL AT 9:00 PM: AMY “THE LIONESS”

In this great live concert “Amy, The LIONESS”, the repertoire is masterfully interpreted by Anastasia Chauvin, a magnificent voice with an exceptional particularity, her voice is so close to that of Amy Winehouse…
Anastasia will be accompanied by five talented musicians to the delight of the audience.

🎶 MONDAY APRIL 10 AT 6:00 PM: SWING AMBASSADOR and SUSANA SHEIMAN

Closing the festival with the Swing Ambassadors, a brilliant septet accompanying Susana Sheiman. This Hispanic-American singer is one of the most assertive voices in Spanish jazz, and has performed on major international stages such as New York’s Lincoln Center, Barcelona’s Palau de la Musica Catalana and the Jazz in Marciac festival.

Susana Sheiman is one of the world’s leading jazz musicians.

The soul of the festival

The Swing association

Le Swing à Mirepoix is above all a collective work, supported by a team of passionate volunteers, some of whom have been with us since the very beginning of the adventure!

Created in 1996 by the Association du Swing, the objectives haven’t changed an inch: to share its love of Jazz, Swing and partying … and have made this festival a flagship event in Ariège.

First carried at arm’s length by president Vincent Lampasona, then taken over by Alain Baby, since last year Bernard Garcia has been in charge of the presidency.

Supported by 30 buddies and volunteers, he hopes to welcome up to 300 spectators at the IN of this 2023 edition and is already looking ahead, dreaming of making Swing the little “Marciac de l’Ariège“.

Great joys and small pleasures
