Since their inception in 2005, Dance Gavin Dance has steadily built a huge cult following. Blending complex instrumentation with huge poppy choruses and raw, aggressive screams, they have fathered an entire genre of their own characterized by their signature combination of elements of post hardcore, math-rock, progressive-rock, and post-rock. This has become aptly named ‘Swancore’ after the band’s virtuoso guitarist, Will Swan and his record label Blue Swan Records.

This was the inspiration for the first ever Swanfest which took place earlier this year at City National Grove of Anaheim. Headlined and curated by Dance Gavin Dance, the event was a phenomenal sell-out success, a rare feat for a festival in it’s first year. In 2020, Swanfest will once again be headlined and curated by it’s creators when it lands in their home town of Sacramento, CA. Speaking on Swanfest 2020, Will Swan says

“With last year’s Swanfest selling out in Southern California, it only made sense for us to bring this year’s show to our hometown in Sacramento, CA. We are thrilled to have the chance to headline our biggest venue yet in the very city where it all began.”

Dance Gavin Dance also recently announced a huge US headline tour with support from Animals As Leaders, Veil Of Maya and Royal Coda. The Spring 2020 tour will also feature Issues as the final band rounding out the 5 band bill. Full dates below, tickets and VIP packages from DanceGavinDanceBand.com
