Exchange and return

Changes, exchanges and returns

TMW 2020 passes – Festival Pass, Conference + Festival Pass (now PRO Pass) and single showcase tickets – purchased in March, are valid also on new TMW dates in August. The single showcase tickets will be good for the same weekday (Th, Fr, Sat) predominately at the same venues.

Due to the COVID-19 related travel restrictions, TMW 2020 will feature artists from the EU  and Schengen member states, from which the quarantine requirement does not apply when arriving in Estonia.


Passes purchased for March dates do not need to be exchanged, they are valid on August dates (during the festival week it is necessary to exchange the pass for a wristband).

Events removed from the programme

Since during the week before the festival, the number of new coronavirus infections has increased above the allowed norm in the United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland, musicians from these countries will no longer be able to enter Estonia without the obligation to stay in quarantine.

The TMW Stereoleto festival and Sevkabel Port showcase night, scheduled to take place at the Nobel Hall in Noblessner Foundry on Saturday, 29 August, is cancelled due to three of its artists – Iceage (DK), The KVB (UK) and Chinchilla (UK) – not being able to perform there. The rest of the performers planned for that night will be rescheduled to other TMW showcase events.

For those, who would like to exchange or return previously purchased TMW tickets for the Sevkabel Port and Stereoleto showcase, we offer the following options:
