Take a look at the 2018 music programme lineup here.

In addition to the indoor venues, we recommend you to take part of the City Stage programme, where free pop-up concerts and special sets by festival acts take place in cafés, galleries, design studios and private homes around the city. This is our way to show you around in Tallinn and visit some of our favourite hangouts. The City Stage programme will be announced during February and March 2018.

The festival is also putting an emphasis on accessibility for people with special needs.

You can buy the festival pass from our web store. Thee single tickets for individual concerts will be available from January 2018.

“Tallinn Music Week is a musical melting pot. It’s bubbling over. The festival is also set apart by the range of music on offer: classical showcases, Estonian Voices, choir, jazz and folk complement all the pop-rock-metal-indie-dance variants expected at any showcase festival.”
