Want to be the first to dance tango in Hell?
Tango in Hell is a compact milonga weekend featuring international DJs from Sweden, Germany, The Czech Republic and Denmark. Everything is at one place, situated at Scandic Hell Hotel, a 600 meter walking distance from Trondheim airport and Værnes train station. Hell Shopping Center is 100 meters away, so basically you have all you need within eyesight 🙂
At the hotel you will dance and dine in very nice surroundings. The price includes the following:
- Access to 6 milongas (4 traditional and 2 alternative/nuevo milongas)
- 2 nights in double room, check in Friday, check out Sunday
- 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners
- Free 2 hr DJ seminar
- Free parking
- Free transport from/to airport
- Pool, sauna, fitness room and relaxation area at the top floor of the hotel
We are aiming towards a balance between followers and leaders. When there is overweight of 10 persons of any kind, the registration will temporarily be put on hold. Registration in couples will make it easier for us to manage and for you to enter 🙂
Btw, “Hell” in Norwegian means “luck”, “something about to finish” or “pour”.

La Sonia, Frankfurt, Germany
La Sonia from Frankfurt (Germany) had been a Tango dancer for around 8 years, when she added another packaging form to her usual tango-addiction dosage three years ago, when starting to DJ.
Since then, she has DJ-ed in various milongas, marathons and festivals throughout Germany and Austria.
"Music should be for the dancers and so should be the DJ", is her belief. She switches between rhythmic, romantic and dramatic tandas, moving people, moving emotions and trying to make most of the dancers happy during her sets.
Eva-Lena Ahlberg, Linköping, Sweden
DJ Eva-Lena started DJing in 2007, it was also about the same time she started dancing. Tango music has fascinated her from the very beginning, especially discovering new aspects dancing and listening over and over again.
She has played in several European countries and is a resident DJ at the local “Milonga la Barranca” in Linköping.
She plays the “golden age of music” meaning the sounds from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Even though she prepares her music days before the milonga she is playing at, the final touch is done at the milonga, depending on the mood, rhythm and flow that is present at night.
AppleJack (Jacob Burén), Langeland, Denmark
AppleJack aka Jacob Burén. I started dancing tango, in the early days of 2012 -and soon after developed a deep love for tango music. As most tango-aficionados I really love the music from the Golden Age, but I also seek inspiration in the tango music from the “Old World” such as Poland, Russia, Turkey.
I try to find the more romantic Tango tunes and mix the tandas of Tango with tandas of Electronic- and Non-tango tunes. I try my best to accommodate the music to the taste of the dancers, the atmosphere in the room and flow of the milonga. www.tangodjapplejack.dk
Tomáš Kohl, Prague, Czech Republic
I have DJed since 2013 in Prague, on local milongas and events. I organized some, and so I understand the organizer's perspective as well.
Most recently I have started playing internationally, e.g. on a festival in Brzeg, Poland, this summer.
My style is all based about connecting with dancers and I spend most of the time looking at them and not on the computer.
Music-wise, I play great danceable tangos from 1940s to 2018. Focus is on danceability. My ideal playlist would have around 60% Golden Age and the rest from more recent years. I love to include present bands that perform tangos for dancing, like Sexteto Cristal.
Nisse (Nils Ahlberg), Linköping, Sweden
DJ Nisse mostly plays the “golden age” tandas with plenty of playfulness and romance in it. He also loves a good beat and finding good compositions within every single tanda.
