Göteborg, SE

Gillis Bengtsson started up SwingKids more than 20 years ago as a management and has since been active in many roles, operating as a label, distributor, agent, promoter, tour manager, dj, club runner and more. SwingKids got its base in Gothenburg and has worked with numerous artists, mostly in the reggae genre.
SwingKids has been instrumental in Swedish reggae and has been part in taking it to levels no one though possible with hit records, awards and sold out football stadiums as stand out achievements – quite unique for a 100% independent company. Gillis is today active around household names such as Kapten Röd, Svenska Akademien and Labyrint, and spends his time as a family man, running the company and getting wider perspectives as a paragliding pilot.
