Policoro in Swing

5000 people showed up at the amphitheatre in South Italy’s biggest Swing festival in Policoro.

Our plane was five hours delayed and my luggage was lost. I had to borrow Runes trumpet and buy some dresses in the festival stores

We played outdoors in an amphitheater. Hugh audience showed up and people were dancing till sunrise
