Punta del Este  is gearing up for 4 days of shows, seminars, milongas, afternoon milongas, tango with inclusion of people with all different abilities , djs, live music and concerts.
Once again, hundreds of tangueros from varied parts of the world will arrive at Punta del Este to embrace tango.

“Tango en Punta” is the first and only tango festival in the world with inclusion of people with disabilities. Organised since 2012, it takes place each year on two continents: in February in Uruguay (Punta del Este) and in September in Austria (Bregenz). It is a place where international tango professionals and hundreds of tango lovers independent of nationality, age, gender, physical and mental abilities meet each other for a weekend of embrace that knows no borders.

During this 4 days mega-event we offer numerous workshops, milongas, exhibitions, live music, shows and much more with amazing tango dancers, musicians and djs, all activities having an inclusion aspect. One of the highlights of the festival is the IN-Concert, a multi-disciplinary performance especially created for “Tango en Punta”. It is a feast for the eyes, ears and soul, where world-known artists and students from the inclusive tango workshops perform together, recreating each time in a different way the story of inclusion.

“Embracing Tango, Embracing Inclusion” has been the philosophy of the festival since its beginning. It embodies the spirit of the Tinkers, that of fellowship and meeting. During the festival we experience it every day in a surprising number of ways, literally “creating inclusion” together. Our past editions have brought together more than 1000 visitors, year after year.

Join us to celebrate a weekend of inclusion!
