The Rethymno International Tango Festival “A Los Amigos” was a lifetime dream come true. The vibrant tango community of Rethymno, but also the entire tango community of Crete, a place in the periphery of Greece and Europe, opened up in a big embrace and founded A LOS AMIGOS in 2013, an event that aims at maintaining the essence of Τango. The cast of A los Amigos has always been filled with artists who we respect a lot for their contribution in the growth of tango, but with whom also a close friendship has been established over the years. This festival was conceived as a true celebration of Tango & Friendship and it has been growing every year more and more thanks to the love of the people who visit it and the help of our volunteers and our sponsors. We just love what we do and we hope to welcome you, too, in our embrace and make you testimony of the magic around A LOS AMIGOS.

A big venue with an excellent floor for the Grand Milongas ensures your comfort and a unique historic building in the old town, just a few steps from the workshops’ venue, offers the setting for the 3 afternoon milongas (Friday to Sunday). To relax, enjoy your coffee or tea and admire the view of the old town from the wonderful terrace between tandas. 5 days and nights of pure enjoyment, embraces from all over the globe and friends meeting year after year in what has become the MUST event of the summer!

We are literally walking on "terra incognita" with the new reality brought to us by this awful pandemic. We've been monitoring the situation not only in Greece but worldwide, in order to be sure we are doing the right thing. Considering that A LOS AMIGOS is an International Event uniting people from 38 countries, and taking into account all the health hazards, travel restrictions & complications in organizing events with a big number of people, we came to the conclusion that it is best not to go on with this year's edition. We took this heartbreaking decision after much thought & consideration putting safety and health above all consequences, deciding to postpone A los Amigos for next year. The new dates will be 1-5 SEPTEMBER 2021! So mark your calendars!
IMPORTANT NOTICE: "Postpone" doesn't mean "cancel", though!
As a small comfort to us all and in order to keep the "Amigos" vibe going even in these difficult times, we propose to you a somewhat different version of your favourite festival, one that complies with the new era:
An ONLINE VERSION of A LOS AMIGOS is brought to you on the same dates (26-30 August 2020) with a selection of classes (for both individuals & couples) as well as talks, tango cafes & virtual milongas with shows. We propose this adapting to the new reality that has risen and hoping that you will support us in these ire times, while we get ready to embrace again in the near future!
We offer 4 packages for registration & donation: 25€-55€-100€-130€
In the hope that we will see you all at our online tango festival this August, we send to you our best wishes! Stay safe!
