Cardigans to headline at Õllesummer ({{commentsTotal}})


The Swedish rock band the Cardigans will play the Õllesummer festival in Tallinn at the beginning of July, it was announced. The festival is a mix of a three-day rock concert with an accompanying beer festival.

The Cardigans came together in 1992 with the team unchanged since, breaking through in 1997 thanks to providing music for the movie “Romeo & Juliet.” The band then had slower years but reunited in 2012.

It will be their first performance in Estonia.

Placebo has also been penciled in for a performance this year.

Õllesummer, one of the longest running and biggest festivals in Estonia, has seen performances by bands such as the Cranberries, Mika, Alphaville, Pet Shop Boys, Moby and the Manic Street Preachers.

Around 70,000 to 80,000 people are expected to visit the three to four day festival.
