The Summer Jamboree is back and the biggest International Festival in Europe of ‘40s and ‘50s American music and culture will be held from from 30th July to 7th August in Senigallia, on Italy’s famous Adriatic Riviera.
After a year of forced closure (2020) and a 2021 edition with many restrictions and no dancing, it’s finally back with all the ingredients to create the magical festival atmosphere which belongs to the Summer Jamboree.
Great concerts with admission free of charge featuring exclusive performances by international artists and an unforgettable line up complete with the return of Swing and Rock’n’Roll dancing in open air spaces set up for the occasion.
The main guest of the 2022 edition is Rock’n’Roll legend and father of the twist Chubby Checker, who will be on stage on 3rd August with a great concert featuring hits such as Let’s twist again, The Twist and Limbo Rock – entry with admission fee (Ciaoticket).

Friday 5th August is the night of the BURLESQUE SHOW at Teatro La Fenice with topping the bill the hilarious Russell Bruner (USA) who this year, as well as presenting the Summer Jamboree, will also entertain spectators with a thrilling performance: a perfect combo of Vaudeville charm, the comic talent of the variety artist and the sex appeal of Burlesque. Russell will delight the public with a fantastic mix of Swing slapstick male striptease.
The Burlesque Show will also see performances by Colette Collerette (BE), an artist who has won a number of international Burlesque awards, who blends the glamour of the Roaring Twenties with her Belgian sense of humour, and Chanelle De May (FRA), a professional dancer and graduate of a school of ballet and contemporary dance who has decided to broaden her artistic horizons, today performing the Charleston, Lindy Hop and Argentinian Tango.
