Who created the Forró App?2023-04-17T12:42:59+02:00
Dear Forró organisers and friends,
Daniel here from weloveforro Munich and a European Forró Federation Board member since 2022.


Background story:

Philipp (a Forró dancer from Munich) and his friends, got inspired by the mission of the federation and generously offered to create the “Forró App” through which we can unite all Forró Events into one community app. They are happy to make our wishes a reality, so if you have one let us know:

They even created an iframe that makes it possible to display your own events and all festivals on your website and it will update automatically, as events are added to the app.
Philip and his friends can give all their effort and time for free, as offering us this community app also help to grow their Filora App Event catalogue, making the app a win-win for us and them.


Still, we have quite some server costs and need your support to keep the App running.
Please consider helping us:

Jonas (Backend Developer)

Paul (Frontend Developer)

Philipp (Project Manager)

Daniel (Forró Advisor)

How can you create this amazing app for free?2022-08-26T09:53:05+02:00

Please read „who created this app“ for the background story.

Content Development:

As the App is a big win for the Forró community and helps to unite and grow Forró, Daniel from the Forró Federation and other volunteers help to bring everyone on board.

IT Development:

The app is a win-win for the Forró community and the developers, as the Forró app is connected to the Filora app, another event platform that the developers like to grow. Also, we were lucky that this was their first project to build and test features, so we can grow with them together.

The app will always stay free for everyone.

In the future, there might be some premium features that organisors can use, like highlighting your events or selling event tickets easily.

Can dancers add my event to their private calendar?2022-10-22T11:53:08+02:00

This is not autimatically build in yet, but you can create a .ics file (an event that people can add to their calendar) with this generator:, upload it to your google drive (make sure that it´s available to download for everybody) and add this link to the Forró app. That way, when people click on the link, they can download the event.ics file and add the event automatically to their calendar.
