Health and Safety at Tallinn Music Week 2021

The Estonian Government has decided that controlled cultural events can go ahead! Tallinn Music Week (TMW) will go ahead as planned 

Ahead of the festival, you might have some questions about health and safety. The following will give you a better idea of what TMW is doing and what you can do. The festival will be organised in line with the rules in place at the time for public events, aimed at minimising the spread of the coronavirus. 

How can I participate at the festival? 

  • By showing your EU digital COVID certificate (or an internationally recognised certificate), which shows that you’ve either: 
    • been vaccinated 
    • recovered from COVID 
    • received a negative PCR test result in the last 72 hours 
  • With a rapid test, valid for 48 hours, can be taken on location for a fee of 7 euros

The rapid test is an opportunity for those who cannot vaccinate to also attend the festival. However, we urge all who can to get vaccinated as soon as possible in order to keep yourself and your close ones healthy as well as keeping live culture open. In Estonia, the EU digital COVID certificate can be downloaded at If you’re travelling from abroad, check with your local healthcare authorities how these certificates are organised. You can either save the certificate (especially the QR code) on your phone or print it out, and it is valid only with ID. 

What will the festival do?

We will check the certificates of each person entering the venue and in their absence offer the option of taking a rapid test on location for an added fee. We will make sure that all venues are in line with heightened hygiene requirements and that disinfectants are available, as well as masks (wearing a mask at festival venues is voluntary). 

What should I do?

Our guiding principle is that we can create an environment that is in line with requirements, however, it is up to each individual person to make sure their behaviour and activities don’t harm their own or anyone else’s health. A safe environment is the result of collaboration between the organisers and the guests, but it is up to everyone to keep an eye on their own health. 

TMW asks guests to keep in mind that persons who have contracted COVID-19 in the preceding 14 days, who have been in contact with a COVID-19 positive person, or who have symptoms of an acute respiratory infection (fever, dry cough, difficulties breathing) are not allowed to attend the festival.
