Events Program



In conjunction with the Redwood Coast Music Festival . . .

If you agree with us that dancing to amazing live New Orleans and Trad Jazz, Swing, Blues, Soul, Zydeco, Rockabilly and more for days on end and hangin' out with good folks in some of the most beautiful country in the world sounds like a great time then you need to head to Eureka, CA for the TENTH Annual Emerald Coast Lindy Exchange!


The Emerald Coast Lindy Exchange and The Redwood Coast Music Festival work together to produce a 4 Day celebration of dance and live music featuring some of the finest bands and musicians in the country.  It's all here in the heart of Humboldt County!



8 stages.  40+ bands and over 100 sets of live music. Large venues (10,000 sq ft wood floor), Medium venues - two with sprung maple dance floors, AND more intimate venues (with dance floors) to change up the experience.






What does a Emerald Coast LX ticket get you?


The Emerald Coast LX provides an exceptional opportunity for dancers to celebrate live music and dance by purchasing tickets at a reduced dancer rate. This is an incredible music festival that is known as a 'dancers' festival among attendees and musicians alike!


The dancer ticket is an all event 4-day pass giving you all-venue access to every single set performed Thursday - Sunday.

Start it off with the Thursday night Kick-off dance May 7th!  

Doors at 6pm.  Dance 7:30-10pm.



Fancy a dance contest?

Your exchange ticket automatically gets you into the dance contest.

Held Saturday from 10:30-1:30.

10:30- Warm up and signup with James Zeller Quartet

12:00pm- Prelims with Jake Sanders Quintet w/Dennis Lichtman
