Tallinn Music Week is a music industry conference and one of the biggest indoor festivals in the Baltic region. In 2013, the festival will celebrate its 5th edition.

The mission of the festival, as stated on its website, is ‘to raise the reputation of Estonian music, to enhance the international development of local music industry and to promote Tallinn and Estonia as an exciting cultural tourism destination’.

“With the support of good partners – European Capital of Culture Tallinn 2011 / Kultuurikatel, Nordic Hotel Forum and Skype the festival has achieved international reputation and recognition while representing up-and-coming Estonian talent at festivals all over Europe.

Tallinn Music Week: a Festival and a Conference

  • Music Festival: At the fifth edition of Tallinn Music Week we will present a line-up of up to 200 bands from Estonia and across Europe. The concerts take place in unexpected places – cafés, galleries, shopping centres, record stores, hotel rooms, offices – and of course in Tallinn’s best music clubs and concert venues. The music covers all genres, scenes and sub-cultures from underground and avant garde to pop, rock, classical music and everything in between.
  • International Music Industry Conference: The Conference is the place where music industry players from all over Europe will discuss the future of music business and creative industries. Around 300 international and 300 local music industry delegates will be welcomed in Tallinn for the conference. The Estonian president, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, traditionally delivers the  opening speech of Tallinn Music Week.
