The 9th edition of the Edinburgh International Tango Festival offers another wonderful bank holiday weekend of world class artists and many hours of warm, friendly dancing set in a beautiful city.

At the heart of the Festival is the Summer Ball, a grand event featuring the highly acclaimed La Juan D’Arienzo. Three evening milongas in our traditional halls and relaxed matinée tango cafés will fill your dancing weekend from Friday evening to the small hours of Tuesday morning. Each evening features a show from our guest artists, while talented international DJs will keep your feet moving even after you thought you could dance no more.

You can also enjoy over 20 workshops (from complete beginners right through to master classes) taught by some of the world’s best tango maestros. This year includes a special musicality workshop, options for musicians and a new refreshers course.
