The fourth and final evening of Puutuur (Tree Tour) took place on, around and under the most beautiful tree in the courtyard of the historical Kõue Manor in Kose Municipality, Harju County.

The final installment of the tour was introduced by native shoegaze duo Imandra Lake. The duo consists of Estonian musicians Rein Fuks and Eve Komp, who originally gained fame as members of Pia Fraus during the 2000s.

Similarly to the latter ensemble, Imandra Lake makes shoegaze music, but less on the pop side and touching upon the boundaries of darker folk music with their minimalist Estonian lyrics.

The tastes of the fourth evening were provided by Kaheksa jalga (Eight Feet), the restaurant of Kõue Manor which is ranked one of the top 50 restaurants in Estonia.

Puutuur was a tour involving nature, music, light and poetry in a fairytale atmosphere which took place in different parts of Estonia during the summer.
