ABOUT

Welcome to the Gavito Tango Festival

The 2023 Gavito Tango Festival took place October 5th through 8th at the extraordinary Historic Biltmore Hotel in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. This luxurious venue transported our guests to a world of Hollywood glamour where we danced in the same rooms that hosted the original 1930s Oscar’s ceremonies. We are thrilled to provide the international tango community with seminars and performances by world-renowned artists, and traditional and alternative milongas with top-tier DJs.
