The ninth edition of the city festival will take place in Tallinn, Estonia from 27th March to 2nd April 2017. A weeklong celebration of talent, curiosity, creativity, freedom and equality keeps its nucleus in the new music festival that offers a multi-genre mix of around 200 acts from the Baltics, across Europe and beyond. The line-up, spanning from outsider artists to chart-pop acts and from folk inovators to classical musicicans, is put together on the basis of artist submissions by a broad team of Estonian music experts.
Last year, the festival received an all-time record number of nearly 1,300 applications with over 250 acts from 33 countries confirmed to perform at the festival, among them Russian beatmaster PIXELORD, Danish-Finnish indie-supergroup Liima, and an Estonian-born world class conductor Kristjan Järvi. From Austria, Black Lotus Experiment, Leyya and Waelder performed in Tallinn in 2016.
