Tallinn Music Week is a music industry conference and one of the biggest indoor festivals in the Baltic region that started out in 2009. The festival welcomes around 300 international and 300 local music industry delegates each year and the next festival edition will present a line-up of around 170 artists from Estonia and neighbouring countries, so it is a perfect weekend to visit early springtime Tallinn during three nights full of good music in Tallinn’s best venues for the most demanding tastes: from folk and jazz to punk and electro, from classical music to metal and anything in between.

Helienne Lindvall, The Guardian:
“Tallinn Music Week suggested the Baltic States would be the next region to burst on to the European music scene. It was clear right from the start that last week’s Tallinn Music Week was not your ordinary music festival – and Estonia not your average country.”
Adam Harper, Wire Magazine:
“Tallinn Music Week has proven that a country as small as Estonia punches well above its weight in terms of musical talent. TMW was a thought-provoking window on music-making culture not just in and around Estonia, but as regards the rest of the world too.”
Ville Kipeläinen, Fullsteam Agency (FIN):
“After 4 years, Tallinn Music Week is already among the top 5 showcase festivals in the world, which is an amazing accomplishment in itself. Secondly, the Estonian music scene has leapfrogged past most European countries as one of the most exciting sources of emerging talent. Tallinn Music Week is a productive and enjoyable event that just keeps getting better and better.”
Martin Elbourne, The Great Escape (UK):
“I thought the level of organization and hospitality Tallinn Music Week provided was superb. Tallinn’s concert venues were great. It was one of the most enjoyable conference showcase events I have been to (and I have been to a few!).”
