Details:

  • This is from dance websites, and I can't always tell which bands are playing contra as opposed to, say, ECD.
  • I also can't tell how long a band is playing in a weekend. Rushfest and Buddy System typically play shorter amounts than most other bands on this list, but it's variable.
  • I'm trying to count all events with at least 9hr of contra dancing. Let me know if I missed anything.
  • Here's the raw table: list of dance weekends, festivals, and long dances (see the "2016" tab).
