Neptune Tango Marathon is a three-day whirlwind of tango emotion in the heart of Gdansk Old Town. 

Polish Baltic Philharmonic is opening its doors to the revellers, who will be able to enjoy the host's high performance flooring and their awe-inspiring sound system.

Music will be provided by an international DJ team, and throughout the event, tea, coffee (and water) will be on tap.

We will also boost your energy levels with hot soup and sweet snacks.

For the tireless dancers, there will be pre- and after- parties, as well as a flash mob in a terrific setting.

Step into Gdansk, step into Tango!

Joanna Kozłowska
She loves to dance, she loves music and she loves to DJ. She carefully selects the tracks, considering their dynamics, mood and the joy coming from their interpretation… She plays the pieces to which she would gladly dance herself, and the effort she puts into her selections is visible in the dancers' energy. She has been playing at local milongas for years, and co-organised Gryf Tango Marathon, where she also warmed the guests up with her music.
Marcelo Almiron
He is an active tango dancer since 1990. He has been a dj since 2002 in many milongas in Buenos Aires and is a resident dj in the most important milongas in Poland, where he is resident last 5 years. He has also dj'd at many international festivals and marathons and is a popular guest dj in milongas around Europe. His favourite orchestras are: Francisco Canaro, Juan D'Arienzo, Francisco Lomuto, Tipica Victor and Enrique Rodriguez, Demare Calo. His style is traditional but very personal: "I like tandas with orquestras from 30's and 40's and some from late 40's and 50's. There are no rules during my dj sets. Only the flow and energy of the floor are important!"
Yulia Oseledko

I started to DJ five years ago. Now I have international DJ experience - Russia, Germany, Georgia, Poland and Spain. I fell in love with Gdansk and its tangueros. Very beautiful city and friendly people. DJing is my passion. When I DJ I'm sharing the part of my tango-heart with the dancers and I put my most energetic and romantic tandas to make people happy. One of my favourite tango orchestras is Miguel Calo, but as a DJ I love them all. Let's celebrate the life dancing!

Błażejewski Marcin
When creating the atmosphere of the milonga Marcin as a DJ does his best in selecting the music in the way that dancers feel good energy, comfort and the pleasure. He is not able to answer the question what he is going to play half an hour later. The ideas for the following tandas come to his mind based on the dancer’s mood and the atmosphere on the dancefloor. Marcin is keen on the traditional music with preferences of Golden Age, which makes a core of his selection occasionally supported by the music of Guardia Vieja as well as from 50s, 60s and later. His favourite orquestras are Anibal Troilo, Osvaldo Pugliese and Carlos Di Sarli.
Paula Ćwiklińska
I pursue mainly as a Coast DJ. I am a co-author of one of the first Tri-City milongas. In selecting tracks I follow the motto: people - space - energy - diversity - balance. The base of my milongas are the Golden Age tangos. My repertoire includes earlier songs, but also contemporary arrangements of traditional tangos.
Pavel Wagner
Started his DJ career in 2008 at the local milonga in Düsseldorf (Germany). Since 2015 Pavel was DJing at Tango Synergy milongas, Milonga La Belle Epoque and Pablito's milonga in Sydney. Pavel was the major initiator and co-founder of the famous Synergy Outdoor Milonga in Sydney Darling Harbour. Since 2014 he was regularly DJing and hosting the Synergy Outdoor Milonga. In 2014 and 2015 he DJed at BASH festival and 2016 PORT MACQUARIE festival. Pavel loves all sort of music including nuevo and alternative tango. In recent years Golden Age tango becomes his passion. DJ Berlin.
Vladislav Kornienko
Vladislav Kornienko is enthusiastic TDJ, tanguero and argentine folklore dancer from Novosibirsk, Russia. Vladislav has an experience in DJing in many countries - Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Hungary... The music he plays is based on Golden Age tangos. When he's playing, he tries to choose only inspiring songs for tandas, as well as for cortinas, music that will invite people to dance and create a joyful atmosphere. Prepare your panuelos to dance zamba (and chacarera as well).
Kasia Press

With tango associated since 2003. Dances, teaches, travels, a tango DJ, and whatever she does, she does it with passion, which infects the environment. There are so many beautiful tangos! Thanks to them I can create all sorts of ambiences. I enjoy what I do: building mood, influencing its changes, careful observation of dancing and playing to their delight "... She played on almost all marathons in Poland, Wroclaw, Warsaw, Lodz, Krakow, Szczecin, Olsztyn.

Luis Cono
Hola! I am Luis Cono from Chile and I live in Malmö - Sweden. As a tango DJ, I am also an event organizer and a milonguero dancer for more than 11 years. I am glad to invite you to come to Gdansk for your first Neptune Tango Marathon. I like very much and I enjoy playing the tango music. I like to improvise all my tandas directly in the milonga and put a lot of energy into the cortinas. See you soon! Abrazos
Peter Stefanics

My goal as a DJ is to keep the mood positive, fun, and romantic rather than dramatic, and to play songs that inspire both beginner and more advanced dancers – in short, to keep up the energy across the different moods and keep most people dancing most of the time. I play tangos mostly from the Golden Age orchestras: D’Arienzo, Troilo, Biagi, Di Sarli, Tanturi, Calo and D’Agostino and Pugliese, in a T-T-M-T-T-V tanda structure with a mix of vocal and instrumental tandas. I lean towards tracks with a steady compás (dancing beat) and prefer singers who use their voice as another instrument in the orchestra instead of dominating the song.
