The fantastic 50’s: the years of changes and rebellion, the backdrop years to many genius in art and memorable public personalities, the years of technological innovations and products imported from America, of home appliances and the first TVs. The years of hope in the future!
To celebrate the wonder of these years that have never stopped to make people dream, Senigallia hosts the Summer Jamboree, an International Music Festival founded in 2000 and focused on the music of those glorious years. This is the most important event in Europe and the second one worldwide.
Are you missing the poodle skirts, the leather jackets, the Juke box and the vinyl records? Then, you cannot miss this unique event, where you can find many stalls selling everything related to the culture of the 50’s. It’s the Rockin’Village, the largest memorabilia VINTAGE MARKET.
Do you want to style your quiff to look like Danny Zuco, the gorgeous leader of the Thunderbirds in Grease? To go back in time, the hairdressers of the Parrucchieria Old Style are ready to style and cut your hair with a 50’s flair.
Have you ever dreamt of dancing like Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in the movie that most celebrates this rebellion time? If the answer is yes, and if at least once in life you have tried to be like Sandy and her friends, then you can to take a dance lesson from the great international teachers of the Dance Camp. Established musicians and new promises from Italy and abroad (USA, England, Germany, Russia, the Netherlands, Portugal, Finland, France), will tune your performance with their live concerts.
If you always wanted to mark your skin with a curvy Pin Up tattoo, the dream of generation of sailors, the Travel Ink Tatooes, the mobile tattoo studio of Greg Gregory, who inside his vintage Airstream van, will be on hand for the duration of the Festival!
