Festival | Tallinn Music Week

Festival

Held each spring in Tallinn, Estonia, TMW is a city festival with an extensive music and arts programme and a new business conference – a weeklong celebration of talent, curiosity, creativity, freedom and equality. The 10th edition of TMW will take place in Tallinn, Estonia from 2nd April to 8th April 2018.  

Having started out as a music industry conference and talent showcase festival, TMW has broadened its concept further into an all-encompassing city festival, covering arts, design, technology, city space and food culture, and various societal issues.

Already in its 10th year, TMW is one of Europe’s fastest growing city festivals and major meeting points for Eastern, Western and Central European creative communities.

TMW 2017 themes and topics

  • Sustainable Development Goals, including sustainable city topics
  • Equality and diversity
  • Integration of communities
  • Estonia’s presidency of the EU Council (Digital Single Market etc)
  • Media’s challenges in the era of „fake news“

The core agenda of TMW 2017 was creative impact with shared vision and common action, encompassing subjects like sustainable development, equality, diversity and special needs, future skills and smarter governance. In 2017 Estonia hosts the EU Presidency, so topics like digital single market and stronger European Union will formed an essential part of the conference discussions.

Music remains integral to Estonia and, for a country with a population barely more than that of five London boroughs, the amount is extraordinary. It’s astonishing. More than that, Tallinn Music Week repeatedly reveals greatness.
