Dj festival in L'viv, Ukraine
30 December — 9 January
Remolino this year will take on a cosier format. As of today, all milongas are to take place at the Panorama hall of Dnister hotel - our regular smaller venue. This means that you don't need to go far to dance - lots of accommodation options in and around the hotel. This also means each milonga is limited to 250 dancers. All milongas from 31 Dec till 4 Jan are sold out, but there are few left for the second half of the festival. Don't miss the end of registration - December 13 (it will be impossible this year to buy tickets at entrance).

Prices and registration:
Please note these rules if you are going to participate. They are described as of now but might get stricter or easier depending on the epidemiological and regulatory situation.
We insist on a self-test (rapid antigen test) before the trip for each guest, regardless of vaccination status and airline and train requirements. We ask you to send documents confirming vaccination in advance so that we can check them.
To participate, you must either:
Have had COVID-19 and recovered before, or
Had been vaccinated, or
Commit to the daily testing(nasal swab, cost of antigen test included in milonga ticket)
Free antigen tests for self-control will be available at the festival reception desk. You should take one upon arrival and after 5 days of stay at the festival.
As these preparations take place before the event, NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. Nor will you be able to share them, sell or give away - each ticket will have a photo of the dancer and can only be used by this person.
We will cancel your registration and refund your payment per your request until December 13.
If you bought the whole day with an early-bird price you can cancel only the whole day (both day and night milonga). If you bought milongas full price you can cancel any milonga separately.
We will also cancel your registration if we don't get all the supporting documents before that date.
We will refund the money for the missed milonga if you are already at the festival and feel unwell.
