This year’s event features an eclectic programme of 237 artists from 33 countries at venues spread across the city.

Mart Avi, a 25-year old Estonian, borrows from the 80s with his staged, synth based pop: “Some of these aren’t really my stories they are like characters I play different characters and they have their own backgrounds,” the young Estonian is a fan as well as performer:
“Well, the best: Bowie, Prince, Miles Davis. The best,” he admitted.

Mart Avi’s third album ‘Rogue Wave’ reached came second in the Estonian Best-Album-of-the-year award, behind David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar.’

Estbel, the name gives it away, are a Belgian, Estonian collaboration, made up of two Belgians and two Estonians, all four harbour a love for traditional music and instruments.

‎Indie popster C Duncan Glasgow also made an impact when he first played here two years ago. Now after a Mercury nomination, the band return Tallinn Music Week.

He explained how he got into the business:
“Basically I was doing music from my very young age Than I went to study classical composition and once I was doing that I realised Pop music is kind of fun as well but making pop music particularly I finished university and I actually thought, this is what I’m gonna do. I utilised all my classical training.”
