Erskine Maytorena, band leader for Qtango, talked for a very long time about putting together a live tango music festival for dancers.  The dream finally came true from March 16-18, 2018 at the first AB-QTANGO-FEST in Albuquerque NM.  The event quickly sold out, and after the success of the festival, he decided to expand the reach of the event and organize another festival in Green Valley AZ, sponsored by the GVR Argentine Tango Club, in order to make it easier for west coast dancers who love live music to attend.

Qtango has been performing for dancers since 2008 and learned a lot along the way.  This is another opportunity to not only share what they've learned, but to build a community of musicians and dancers looking to support live tango music.   

Qtango looks forward to seeing you in Green Valley AZ for their second all live tango music festival.  Check back here and the GV-Qtango Fest Facebook event page for updates on musician and festival plans as they occur.



Important Notes About Passes: 

Space is limited:   At this point we can only guarantee 250 occupants for the dance and teaching events.  Concerts are free to all attendees, though pass holders will be guaranteed reserved seating for their generous donation(s) in support of this event. 

Passes are transferable:  If you can only make it to some events, your friend can use your pass for the events you won't be attending.  We ask that you email us to add your friends name to your pass so there's no confusion.

Door tickets a la carte will be available only if full event passes have not sold out.  We will keep you posted as sales continue.

Gender Balance: We prefer to have a smaller lead/follow balanced event than a sold out one with lots of people sitting.  Sales will be adjusted if the balance drops below 55/45.
