Lindy Bout XII


Location & Lodging

Lindy Bout is held in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada. We’ve got mountains, ocean, great dancing, and a beautiful venue!

Lindy Bout takes place in the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Venue

Lindy Bout XII will be held on Granville Island, at Performance Works, 1218 Cartwright Street.

Originally a machine shop dating back to the 1920’s, Performance Works opened on Granville Island in 1992 with a mandate to provide the arts community with a permanent performance venue. Lindy Bout is thrilled to have found a home in the arts and culture hub of Granville Island.
