Welcome to the Edinburgh International Tango Festival!

EITF’s 10th edition! 26th – 29th May 2017


We are celebrating our 10th edition in 2017 and we have an extra special lineup this year. As always we offer a wonderful weekend of dancing over a bank holiday weekend in one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

This year’s dancers and teachers are:

Horacio Godoy & Celicia Berra

Gaston Torelli & Mariana Dragone

Jenny & Ricardo Oria


To make the 10th edition extra special we have two grand evenings in Greyfriars Kirk, each with one of the outstanding orchestras in the world today, as well as milongas and afternoon cafes in our traditional halls.

Sexteto Milonguero

Orquesta Tipica La Juan D’Arienzo


As always we have a full roster of classes and workshops, which this year include some extra special options. Watch this space – full details and the opening of bookings will come very soon.

Thanks to everybody who has attended any of the previous editions of our festival. We hope you enjoyed them as much as we did, and look forward to seeing you in 2017.

Bookings update: there is only a few days until the 10th EITF and we hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are. It has been a very popular year. The Friday milonga and Saturday Ball are now sold out and we are running a waiting list for tickets. Currently (26/5 9am) we only have a couple of tickets left for the Sunday Ball – these will probably go soon. If you want to come then book now, but don’t expect to get get tickets on the door for these events!

Tickets for the Monday milonga and the afternoon cafes will be available on the door. There is some workshop availability, particularly for couples and unpartnered leaders – check our workshops page for latest information.
