2018 will be the 10th anniversary of the Contemporary Tango Festival in Berlin (21st to 26thAugust). Like most tango festivals there are milongas, classes, shows etc but with a global variety of music including the fusion of different musical styles. You’ll have fun exploring dancing tango to lots of new music (both live and recorded).
It starts with a milonga from 8pm till 2am on the opening night (21stAugust) in Berlin Central Station (the main venue for most of the festival events). Dedicated to the roots of tango but with a contemporary interpretation from Buenos Aires this includes live music from “Carlos Libedinsky Quinteto”.
The festival also features an afternoon & evening on the 22nd focusing on Russian Tango which finishes with a milonga till 2pm. There is also a milonga on the 24th where you can experience dancing to 6 hours of pure live-music with Quinteto Ángel.
These events are free with no need to pre-register.
