17.2.2013 Ready, set... go!
The Frostbite Team is getting restless, as the Real Thing is now so close... In only a few more days, the city will be filled with tango-lovers from around the world. As of today, over 20 nationalities have registered, and as registrations keep pouring in, we are sure to be passing the 450 participant line before the opening tanda on Thursday night. We are very happy that so many of you have decided to join us!
Due to some last-minute cancellations, we have a few places available for the Friday and Sunday workshops. To book them, just add them to your registration following the link you received when you sent you basic information through the 'prices and registration' page. Due to administrative reasons, we will be closing the on-line registration on Tuesday February 19. After that, you can enquire about free places by email or at the festival check-in. However, please avoid sending us emails after this point, as we are very busy setting up the festival venues and preparing for your arrival!
If you have not yet paid your reservation in full, you can do so in cash at the registration desk in Hotel Presidentti or in Teak.
NOTE: We do not send confirmation emails about receiving your payment, but you can always check the status of your reservation by following the link to your booking.
7.2.2013 The countdown begins!
With two weeks to go, the Festival Preparations have moved to the final stage. As of today, over 400 people have registered for the event, and almost all workshops are now full. However, some cancellations are still possible, so it is always worth a try to book a workshop. If a place becomes available, you will be sent a confirmation email with an invoice.
Please bear in mind that unless you have arranged to pay on the spot, all overdue reservations for workshops will be cancelled on Monday February 11. This way, those on the waiting list have a chance to get in.
There is always room in the milongas though, and we encourage you to make the best out of the almost 48 hours of dancing during the 4 days. Come join us for an Unforgettable Weekend of Tango!
An email with last-minute details about the festival will be sent to all registered participants soon.
We look Forward to Welcoming you All with Open Arms!

We will celebrate this anniversary with special performances, but Everyone can join in: Find a historic-looking outfit, make a hairdo to match it and come prepared for a photography session with the famous Atelier Haapala for the special offer price of 15 eur/person.
