An international line-up of over 200 artists will unfold in Tallinn’s best concert venues. Expect a multi-genre mix of regional headliners, up-and-coming names, cutting-edge acts, and established heavyweights from avant-garde to pop, from dance to metal to classical music.
TMW hosts a dedicated programme for virtually every music genre, which has been compiled from artist applications by a team of local experts, including music business executives, organizers and melomaniacs. For a festival that’s been drawing more international performers, TMW received a record-breaking 1470 artist applications from all around the world and confirmed 237 artists from 33 countries to the line-up. Read more about the 2017 music programme artists here.
The Festival Stage covers over 30 venues, most within walking distance from each other.
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 festival is also putting an emphasis on accessibility for people with special needs.
“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.”
