The first edition of Focus Tango Festival, Friday the 10th of June till Sunday the 12th of June, will be a festive tangoweekend in the centre of Amsterdam, at the spectacular and monumental location Posthoornkerk.
We feel honoured to present to you, for the first time in Amsterdam, from Istanbul, maestros Sercan Yiğit & Zeynep Aktar. We will bring 3 milongas, 4 workshops and 6 renowned DJ's, no one less than DJ Jur Heijnen, DJ Lucas Malec 'El Tabernero', DJ Arjan ‘el Irresistible’, DJ La Gata Negra, DJ Lorena en DJ ‘El Fresco’. There will be attention to the history and development of tango in Amsterdam and the Netherlands with Special Guests Wouter Brave, Martine Berghuijs, Christa Mierás and Juan Carlos Tajes. The Posthoornkerk, the first building in Amsterdam by the famous Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers, who later also built the Rijksmuseum and Amsterdam Central Station, even has an historic connection to tango itself dating back to 1914.

Stay informed. Sign up here for our mailinglist. And follow Focus Tango Festival on our social media channels. Thank you.​​

The offer of a Early Bird Full Milonga Pass for €99 has been prolonged. Get yours while they are still available.

  • We decided to let go of dancecouples registration, and already open up for single registration. Hurray!
  • For Workshops you still need to register as a couple.
  • Workshop Tickets are available in combination with either a Full Milonga Pass or a Day Ticket for that day.
The capacity of the venue is 300. This is a dream come true. Let’s get (back) on the dance floor!

Looking forward to meet you in the Posthoornkerk, greetings, also on behalf of the Focus Tango crew,

Fatima Leeuwenberg
