Dear Tango Community:
With sadness and disappointment but at the same time with a peace of mind about our decision, we would like to announce that Gavito Tango Festival, a dream that we have been working towards for the last year and half, is officially POSTPONED to JULY 2021.
Even though, July 2020 is still 3 months away, after careful evaluation of the developing events of coronavirus outbreak, recommendations of CDC (Center of Disease Control and Prevention) as well as extensive conversations with the artists, orchestra, DJs, vendors and our mentors, we feel that at this moment this is the right decision.
Now onto logistics:
1. For those of you who have already purchased your passes, we ask for your help by choosing one of the 2 following options which will help us to cope with this difficult situation:
– You could choose to roll over your package/pass for next year (the festival is scheduled for July 2021. The exact dates will be announced by October of this year or
– You could choose to support us by donating the package/pass you had purchased to help us cover some of the expanses.
2. If you already purchased your passes and wish to receive your refund please send us an e-mail at email@example.com and we will process it in a timely manner.
3. Hotel Reservations:
Our gratitude to the Marriott Hotel at Warner Center for working so hard with us and for their supportive resolution of this situation. Anybody who had reserved the hotel room via our link under Gavito Tango Festival’s name will have your reservations cancelled and funds refunded by the Marriott Hotel at Warner Center.
Gavito Tango Festival July 2021:
Gavito Tango Festival in July 2021 will have exact same format, location, artists, orchestra, DJs and vendors.
Lastly, from the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank our mentors (you know who you are) and our artistic director, Facundo De La Cruz, for all the support, timeless hours of discussions, and all the feedback that you have provided us with during this challenging time.
