We are so pleased to present the full program of this year`s Friends, Fjord and Tango, taking place on August, 25.-27.

FRIDAY 19.00 – 24.00 - SCENEHUSET (Bogstadveien 49)
Opening milonga with DJ Henny Stridsberg from Stockholm. She describes her music: "I love the classical tango music and play mostly golden age orchestras, but also modern versions of recognizable songs. I would like to describe my DJ-style as full of feelings and rich in contrasts".

SATURDAY 11.00 – 15.00 - KAMPEN MENIGHETSUS (Normannsgata 55)
Day milonga with DJ Anna Jorgensen from Sheffield. Anna is a traditional Tango DJ who focuses on creating irresistibly danceable tandas, with a clear direction of travel across her sets, adjusting the music to fit the moment. She has DJ'd internationally at milongas, festivals and marathons at different venues, including La Vie en Rose Queer Tango Festival Paris, International Queer Tango Festival Berlin, Taba Milonga Copenhagen, as well as venues in Buenos Aires including El Beso and Los Laureles.

SATURDAY 19.00 -24.00 - SCENEHUSET (Bogstadveien 49)
Evening milonga with our local DJ Johannes Holm, who describes his music as traditional with "something on the side".
We also proudly present live music from Oslo´s local tango orchestra Tigertango.

Our traditional lunch milonga in the Oslo Fjord with DJs Erlend and Leonard Bornhoffer playing the good old crank gramophone.
Gressholmen is a cozy little island in the Oslo Fjord, so remember to bring swimwear - there are great opportunities for a bath before and/or after the milonga.


Friday and Saturday evening we serve snacks, coffee, tea and water.
On the Saturday day milonga we serve freshly baked waffles, cakes, coffee, tea and water.
The Sunday lunch at Gressholmen, with one beverage of choice, is included in the festival fee. More drinks can be bought at the bar.
