DJ Omar Saab (Härnösand, Sweden)

Omar’s love and passion for Tango music shows in his choice of songs for each tanda. His style is rooted in the traditional Golden Age of tango, but he is open to playing almost anything that fits the mood. As a DJ he always tries to play beautiful and danceable music that is well balanced in rhythm and melody and very much in tune with the current atmosphere. He has DJ-ed in the U.S., Lebanon, Greece, Norway, Denmark, all over Sweden, and for the last 6 years he has been the main DJ in his local tango community in Sweden.

Eva-Lena Ahlberg (Linköping, Sweden)

«Already from the beginning, when I started dancing tango, I was fascinated by the music. My first DJ-job was in 2007 and since then I was stuck. I’m playing regularly at milonga La Barranca in Linköping, but also at different venues in Sweden and Norway. I play classical tango music from the 20s to the 40s with cortinas. The music is of course prepared before the milonga, but I make the final playlist along the way. Every milonga is unique with its flow, rhytm and taste! This is my fourth performance in Hell.»

DJ Nisse (Linköping, Sweden)

DJ Nisse from Linköping in Sweden is one of our regular DJ that has been in Trondheim many, many times before. 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. We are looking forward to listening to your music for the third time in Hell!

Berit Eklund (Stockholm, Sweden)

A small, intimate milonga or a big festival, it is always exciting for me to play my mix of classical gems for social dancing. Rhythmical, lyrical, romantical and dramatical tones that make the feet eager and the hearts warm. A kick for me as a DJ is to play music that fills the floor with delighted dancers, tanda after tanda, all the way until «La Comparcita». This is Berit’s second time in Hell.

Transportation

You can go to Hell by all means of transportation – plane, train, bus or car (and even by boat). Check your flights here. The venue is situated a very short walk from Trondheim airport. If the weather is nice, it would only take 5-6 minutes. But if Hell freezes over, you can find a taxi just outside the exit – but you pay a lot for the 45 seconds ride! The train station is either at Hell or Trondheim airport. The distance is about the same from both train stations (8-10 minutes walk). All buses also stops near the venue, or at Trondheim airport. And if arriving by car, there is free parking for you.

The venue – Scandic Hell Hotel

Scandic Hell Hotel is one of the best hotels in the area. It received the award «3rd best breakfast in Norway» in 2018, the best breakfast in Norway in 2019 and the food delivered to Tango in Hell 2012 was absolutely superb! Just take a look at the video. All meals are of course included in the full packages.

The dance floor at «Stiklestad» is very good with plenty of space in a nice atmosphere.

Room standard is also very good, and has  improved after a recent refurbishment.

There is a relaxation area with a swimming pool, sauna and a gym (0630-2200). If you want to get away for a minute or 10, you can visit Vertigo bar (open until 0200) at the second floor where you can have a free coffee or tea during the whole stay. Free coffee and tea is also available at various station around the hotel. Other snack or beverages you have to pay for yourself.

You can also rent a bike at the hotel if you want to explore the area (but check the forecast first. It might be chilly – even in Hell).

Bilderesultat for hell godsexpedition
Hell station, with Gods-Expedition

The village of Hell (population 1589) has become a tourist attraction because of its name, as visitors often have their photograph taken in front of the station sign. A smaller building on the railway station has been given the sign Gods-expedition, which is the archaic spelling of the word for ”handling goods” (godsekspedisjon would be the spelling in the contemporary Norwegian language). The word «hell» in Norwegian actually means «luck» so you should actually consider yourself lucky to be in Hell :-). Hell is situated 4 kilometers from Stjørdal, and 35 kilometers from Trondheim.
