Dear Bachateros and Bachateras,

We are still going through difficult times as organizers, artists, and dancers. With the hopes that the situation would get better until June 2021, our festival that was originally planned for 2020 had been postponed to 2021. I thank you very much again for staying with us since then and transferring your tickets to the 2021 edition.

Unfortunately, the situation in Germany is still very critical and it does not seem very likely that we will be legally allowed to have our event as planned in June 2021. Right now, the government is planning to introduce even stricter measures due to the third wave of Coronavirus. With this in mind, we do not see a partnered dance event of our size legally, financially, and securely taking place within 2 months. Not to mention the zero ticket sales for months, extra costs and risks of travel from other countries to Germany, and the effort, time, and finances required to be able to provide such an event as ours with current conditions makes it very hard for us to even imagine it happening this year.

For all the above reasons, I, as the organizer, regret to inform you that I have to cancel our festival until further notice.

Although this might sound like all bad news, we never give up. We will be waiting patiently even for the smallest opportunity to make our event happen again. We are not able to tell exactly when but we remain hopeful and ambitious. That’s why I kindly ask for your support and patience for the next events to come.


All the pass holders received an e-mail yesterday with instructions about how to get a refund. If you haven't received this e-mail yet, please let us know via e-mail at

We will process your request as soon as possible. Please be patient as we will need time to process all the requests.

If you choose not to ask for a refund, we would of course be forever grateful and show our appreciation to you with a voucher for the full amount of your ticket for our future events, plus the promised discount for transferring your ticket from 2020. If that is the case, you will receive your voucher automatically at your e-mail address when the refund period is over.

I really hope you are still doing well and able to continue dancing nevertheless. If there is anything I can do to help you get a refund or clarify a question, please let me know.


All the best and warmest greetings from Berlin,

Your Organizer Erol



MS Hoppetosse, a ferry docked at one of Berlin's most magical locations on the river Spree, will host our opening party on Friday. We will start the party outside on the top deck until 22:00 and later move to the lower decks to continue the party, with still an option to relax and enjoy the view outside on the upper deck.
