The first edition of Focus Tango Festival, Friday the 10th of June till Sunday the 12th of June 2022, has been 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.
