Õllesummer Gets Hopping ({{commentsTotal}})


One of the country's biggest annual festivals, Õllesummer, translated as "beer summer," begins today with Pet Shop Boys as the headliner.

The 19th installment of the event opens its doors at the Song Festival Grounds tonight, with a long list of performances and beers.

For those unfamiliar with the festival, music and atmosphere are the main attractions, although there is plenty to do for beer aficionados.

British pop duo Pet Shop Boys will take to the stage on Friday, and fans should note the band released a new studio album just last month.

Besides the veteran duo formed by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe 32 years ago, the best of pop and rock from Estonia will also be featured, from Estonian Idol winners like Liis Lemsalu, to Eurovision veterans Tanel Padar, to golden oldies like Singer Vinger and Ivo Linna.
