The unique OsterTango Festival in Basel combines a marathon and festival and takes place in the Volkshaus in the center of Basel.
Some of the best tango couples are offering workshops & seminars and dancing at the BIG festival milongas at Volkshaus. Beside the teachers Tango Schule Basel always invites tango orchestras to play a concert as well as for the dancers at the milonga. A big variety of Tango DJs keeps you on the dance floors in the big hall and upstairs at the marathon milonga.
This festival is organised by Tango Schule Basel (Romeo Orsini & Cécile Sidler) in 2020 for the 21st time. I am very much looking forward to join the DJ team for the 9th time myself!
As a Tango DJ you hardly will be able to play out your music on a better sound system than to the one provided in the big hall at Volkshaus Basel. Both milonga venues have their special feel about them and DJ’ing at the marathon is a joint venture between the DJ’s of that day.
My first time as a Tango DJ was in 2012. You’ll find a little video from that night here: TangoNacht @ OsterTango, Basel [7/4/2012].
