International music industry conference

Each year’s conference also hosts a “celebrity talk” with a music industry legend. Throughout TMW’s existence, an impressive number of well-known international industry players and luminaries have participated in the conference panel discussions, among them Seymour Stein, the legendary founder and president of Sire Records (Madonna, Ramones), Viv Albertine of The Slits, influential managers Petri Lunden (Cardigans, Europe), Peter Jenner (Pink Floyd) and many others. Estonian president’s, Toomas Hendrik Ilves’ traditional opening speech of Tallinn Music Week is always a special treat to look forward to.
