Urban Space

Tallinn Music Week, the most curious city festival moves outdoors to greet the arrival of spring.

TMW 2017 Urban Space

Starting on Thursday the pedestrian path from the railway station to Telliskivi was transformed into a bustling festival space with light installations, music and street food. Sculptor Elo Liiv had coached students of the Academy of Arts to build light and sound installations that created the entry to imaginary spaces. The historical Telliskivi water tower got an innovative internal lighting. The brick wall along the path was turned into a 12-meter painting of light. Artist Emer Värk created installations for the train station tunnel to guide visitors to the biggest dance marathon of the weekend, Balti Jaama Tunnel.

As part of TMW city space initiative the Soviet era garages in Tallinn city at Maakri Street 30 got a new lease of life. The joint “garage hack” of students of interior architecture, urbanism, architecture and product design opened a ball pit for kids, a Veg Machine food truck and a pop-up bar. One of the more peculiar actions of TMW was the secret gig of the notorious Estonian rapper Tommy Cash.
