DJ-ing & dancing Tango


The next INTERNATIONAL MILONGA will be a Milonga weekend and take place from Friday 14 March till Sunday 16 March again in the large and spacious Louis Braille Saal which some of you might know from the last edition in summer.

So what does a Milonga weekend mean exactly?

  • No registration necessary
  • Everybody is welcome
  • Plenty of dancing at 4 Milongas:
    • Friday night Milonga
    • Saturday afternoon & Saturday night Milonga
    • Sunday afternoon Milonga
  • You may visit one Milonga as well as all of them for reasonable prices
  • DJs and dancers from abroad will be invited

So it's like a marathon without the marathon typically restrictions of mandatory registration, gender balancing, full package only, but just lots of relaxed dancing. The location offers a ~330m2 perfect wooden dance floor and we will install the meanwhile known TANGO-DJ.AT sound system for best Tango experience!

You may take a look at this trailer of the last INTERNATIONAL MILONGA.

ALPINE ABRAZO organized by TANGO-DJ.AT is an event where dancers from all over Europe enjoy dancing with each other at a very special place to an exquisit selection of music provided by international renown DJs.

Some participants call it an Encuentro, some a Marathon and both like it a lot. We do not believe in trendy definitions but being authentique in our ideas and concepts. Check it out and experience the difference of ALPINE ABRAZO!

Our utmost concern is to provide a friendly environment for everybody to fully enjoy this weekend. We do this by taking care of you the best possible way as far as organization is concerned and emphasize the importance of respectful invitation and dancing on the dancefloor. We embrace and welcome everybody who wants to enjoy such a weekend with us!

ALPINE ABRAZO is a gender balanced, all inclusive event. Dinners, midnight soups, fruit-plates, cheese-plates, variety of cakes, natural fruit juices, teas and coffee are included free of charge! Best value for money is guaranteed. We try to avoid disposable cups and plates as well as sweet soft drinks. Instead we use glasses, dishes and natural fruit juices. For example a nice glass of wine.. : )

You may consider to spend some more days before or after the tango weekend in order to discover the amazing magical nature surrounding you! It's the perfect opportunity to spend a very relaxing and refreshing short holiday!

TANGO-DJ.AT Membership

Plenty of people are using our Tango Database with more than 50.000 records which is based on our Tango archive. Obviously they find plenty of intersting tangos which are often hard to impossible to get on commercial releases. Making those tangos available and staying within the regulatory framework is a very complicated matter.

Especially for those special recordings which can not be found on commercial releases or which are not available any more on CDs of private labels we will be offering a membership system and publish those sought-after recordings as own transfers and/or edited TANGO-DJ.AT releases to our members.

Being member will grant you access to our membership area offering those TANGO-DJ.AT releases of recordings you might be looking for. You may place requests for recordings you are looking for - if we have them and we can sort out legal matters we will make it available to you. Additional goodies as high resolution cover scans and special attention to your inquries as members will be offered.

You may become a member starting with beginning of 2014. Details of how to become a member will be published in upcoming newsletters as well as on our website TANGO-DJ.AT and shop page for TANGO-DJ.AT Membership.

Of course being a member does support our work in making more recordings in better quality available to you and the tango community!
