Tadaam! The long wait is over! Our website is alive and clicking!

You can read all the vital details about our festival now, including artist line-up, program, workshop schedule, venue information and recommendations on where to stay, where to eat and what to see while in Sofia.

We are very happy to have some incredible dance couples with worldwide reputation for awsomeness at our festival. These include Carlos Espinoza with Noelia Hurtado, Ariadna Naveira with Fernando Sanchez and Leandro Palou with Maria Tsiatsiani, all of whom (except Leandro) will be for the first time in Bulgaria. Each of these amazing couples will teach up to 6 workshops and will perform a show during the milongas or concerts. Excited we are, indeed!

We have thought very seriously about music as well and we have confirmed the participation of some top tango musicians – the legendary Silencio in cuarteto format and the incredible Duo Ranas from Buenos Aires, the duo that sounds like a fully fledged orchestra! Each of them will perform a concert supported by a dance show.

And, last but not least, we have a stellar DJ line-up which will keep you dancing through the night during our milongas and afterparties. We are absolutely thrilled to have “the king of the vinyl” Damian Boggio spinning his vinyls during a Gran Milonga on Saturday night. Our list of DJs also features Tugba Tanören, Irina Fiscu, Ilias Selalmazidis and our local celebrity Vladi “Bastoon” Petrov. Read all about them on our website.

The main program of our festival includes 3 milongas, 2 afterparties, 2 concerts and 16 tango workshops for different levels. Of course, there will be some surprises as well – we have left a few aces up our sleeve which we will pull one at the time in the next couple of months so keep watching this space!

We hope that you will enjoy reading our website and that you have already started planning your trip to Sofia in December. If you intend to take some workshops (we strongly advise you to do it) you can check their topics on the workshops page, mark the ones you are most interested and coordinate them with you partner, if you have one (if you don’t have a partner we strongly advise you to get one). We will open the registrations on or shortly after 21st September and the price per workshop will be between €20 and €25, depending on the time you submit your registration, the type (couple or single) and the number of workshops.

If you have any questions we would always be happy to hear from you on our festival email diadeltango@gmail.com

Stay tuned for more festival updates!
