Aires de Blues 2020 Buenos Aires
Aires de Blues 2020 9/11/2020 City: Buenos Aires, Argentina Dances: Blues Having a festival that is repeated yearly is an honor and a permanent challenge. We organizers are grateful for all the presence, enthusiasm and feedback we receive with each edition.

This year we will be putting together the festival based on the needs and tastes of those who attend. There will be two days of lessons and three nights of partying and dancing with live bands.

We will build the schedule around what the attendees tell us they want to focus on and what the interests are.

HomeBrewed Blues Copenhagen
HomeBrewed Blues 9/11/2020 City: Copenhagen, Denmark Dances: Blues, Fusion A blues and fusion exchange, focused on good music and community driven activities.
Lots of live music and a dedicated room for both Fusion and Blues.
The event will be quite cheap (65 €) but we hope that everybody will do a little something to make the event awesome: Play a DJ set, organize an excursion, bake a cake, help decorating, help out at the bar or something similar.
We have a lovely venue with a bar, a sauna for late night relaxing, a cosy space to hang out and 2 dance floors.
