Mainlocation: Leerhotel Het Klooster – Amersfoort.
We have chosen a special location for the festival this year. In the middle of the forest, a short distance from the medieval center of Amersfoort and only 45 minutes with a direct train connection from Schiphol Airport. The monastery was founded in 1952 under the architecture of the Dutch architect Jos Schijvens. Among others, Pope John Paul the 2nd was a guest here. Over the years it is expanded several times. In 1996, it was dissolved as a monastery. In 2007, the complex was placed in the Top 100 Reconstruction Architecture and in 2010 it was classified as a national monument. Currently, the monastery is training students to be the hosts and hostesses of the future. A perfect location to give concrete form to our theme of this year: ‘the new generation’.
Poppodium Fluor – Amersfoort
Tango in a pop venue. A challenge we are happy to take on. Because we think it’s important to get a new generation interested in Argentine Tango. As part of the festival, we are collaborating with Fluor to organize an evening dedicated to modern tango and crossovers with other musical styles.
