About the Dutch International Tangoweek

The Dutch Tangoweek Foundation’s mission since 2009 is to make the Argentine Tango as a cultural movement more visible in the Netherlands. We want to give this cultural heritage the place it deserves.

Our events are characterized by live music of the highest international level in places where the atmosphere of the music is at its best. Because dance is an important form of musical experience, we always provide a dance floor.

In just a few years, our events have grown into a platform for national and international top talent that cares about the Argentine tango and is committed to maintaining and protecting this Unesco cultural movement in the Netherlands.
