Practical Information

TMW 2023 will take place on 10 – 14 May 2023. The programme will be announced in spring 2023. Until then you can read last year’s practical information below.


Tallinn Music Week will take place in two Estonian cities in 2022. In our capital Tallinn (4 -6 May) and in third biggest city Narva (7 – 8 May). On this page you will find useful information about visiting both. We have compiled together information on our Info Desks, Passes and Tickets, Trains and Buses to Narva, as well as special deals on accommodation in Narva.

About Tallinn and Estonia

The official travel guide to Estonia – Visit Estonia.
The official travel guide to Tallinn – Visit Tallinn.

Arriving by plane, the easiest (and most environmentally friendly) way to get to town is by tram (line 4). The tram stop is located right next to the airport and the tram will take you directly to the city centre and to Nordic Hotel Forum in less than 15 minutes. The Hobujaama tram stop is in front of Nordic Hotel Forum (TMW 2022 main hotel, conference and info centre). You can change lines there to get to Kalamaja and Telliskivi Creative City (lines 1 and 2 will take you right to the TMW showcase venues).

You can also take bus No 2 or get a taxi from the airport or order a Bolt pickup with Estonian ride-share app. 

Arriving by bus, there is a tram stop about 100 metres from the Tallinn Bus Station (Tallinna Bussijaam), where lines 2 and 4 stop. 

Arriving by ferry, take a taxi or bus No 2 (a line between the port and the airport), or simply walk to the city centre, since it is not far away. You can call Tallink Taxi (+ 372 640 8921) or use taxi/ride sharing apps such as Bolt. 


Health and safety

Public meetings and events are allowed.

The TMW 2022 festival is organised in accordance to latest guidance from the government. Currently (April/May 2022) there are no restrictions regarding public events or traveling. Latest information at the kriis.ee website.
