The annual Tallinn Music Week is a music industry conference and one of the largest indoor festivals in the Nordic-Baltic region.

The mission of the festival is to provide a networking tool and platform for Nordic-Baltic music industries and to enhance the development of regional music industry. The festival brings together around 800 music industry players, the artist line-up presents more than 200 Estonian and international acts from diverse musical genres, attracting an audience of nearly 20 000 music lovers from Estonia and its neighboring countries.
Music festival 26th – 28th March
TMW presents a multi-genre approach, offering a balanced mix of local headliners and up-and-coming names, cutting-edge acts and established names from avant-garde to pop and classical music. The seventh Tallinn Music Week presents over 200 acts from the Baltics, Nordic countries, Russia, and across Europe. In 2015, Moonlight Breakfast and Polkov will represent Austria.
POLKOV (ink Music) have been the big surprise of the Austrian music year 2014 and are now out there to find the “Promised Land” they’ve been singing of. Located somewhere between spacy art-rock, acoustic and country, with occasional infusions of brit-pop, the exciting and varied songs of Polkov have their very own vibe, which is sometimes soft and melancholic and then again wonderfully dreamy. www.polkov.com
Performance Date: Saturday, March 28, Time: 22:00, Venue: DaF Studio, Tallinn
MOONLIGHT BREAKFAST (Motor Entertaiment) is a band originally from Romania that is now partially based in Vienna and ready to conquer the international scene.
With its feel good vibes, catchy electro swing tunes and positive message, the band has already made a name for itself by playing a number of high profile gigs throughout Europe and around the world. www.moonlightbreakfast.com

International music industry conference
The two-day music industry conference (27th – 28th March) covers a wide range of topics from local cultural policy and regional cooperation to hands-on artist management tips and global music industry business models. Each year’s conference also hosts a “celebrity talk” with an international music industry legend. Also the traditional opening speech of Tallinn Music Week by Estonian president, Toomas Hendrik Ilves is always a special treat to look forward to.
The internationally recognized event serves both as an effective networking platform for industry professionals and a diving-board for emerging acts around the world to get noticed by international and local talent-spotters and media. Besides the main frenzy taking place at the capital’s finest venues, there’s a way to discover a lesser-seen side of the city, free pop-up concerts, pub-quiz style chatter and culinary delights within TMW’s sub-programmes and fringe-events City Stage, TMW Talks, TMW Tastes and Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend.
