Wow! What a fifth edition!
We are exhausted (the proof: one week late on this message!) but deeply happy with the Rey Del Compás # 5, with unforgettable images and tons of emotions.
The El 13 Tango Club team (Benoit, Camille & Marc) would like to thank the brave DJs: Sergio Segovia, our romantic and passionate South American, Xenia for her skilful and tasty set, Fred2Gap, shaman who communicates directly with the spirits of the lost orchestras, Paola Pia, so tonic and sought-after, Jens Dörr, deep and eclectic, Carole Pachabézian who set fire to the youth hostel during the after party at Sébastien’s and finally the admiral commander, Armando Tatafiore in the service of his majesty the tango.
We would like to thank the indispensable volunteers who make up the festival: Benoit Robisson, with his formidable efficiency, Tristan Berthier, our ninja with such a sweet smile, Patrick Sokolovitch, our unavoidable DIY genius, Eric Héléno, who surpassed himself in the sound adjustment. Florian and Anaïs, for their magnificent light creation, Sylvain Delhon, our shock moustache, Valeria Gonzalez, the Neapolitan niak in a velvet glove, Noémie Loeve, our luxury driver, Nico, the juggler of life, the solar presence of Daphnée, Anne-Lise, our lifelong friend, Denis and Chantal, our beloved Arlesians, Elvis, our eternal nourisher and his photos.
Thanks also to the artists Elodie, Lynn, Noémie and Olivia for having enchanted the corners of the church at Elisabeth’s photo studio, to the delicious massages of Séverine and them exhibitors of this year Hola tanguera, Bandolera, Carole, Tatiana Zardan.
Thank you to the Arles Town Hall for having trusted us again this year by offering us for a long weekend the fabulous church of the Preaching Brothers.
