According to the Munich Schaefflertanz website, they'll be performing their dance on 19 June 2010 as part of the Munich Brewers' Day celebrations (Brauertag) at Marienplatz and the Viktualienmarkt.

 

There doesn't seem to be any up-to-date info about this day on the brewers website at the moment though.
