Exhibition "The Children of the New East"

Tallinn Art Hall Gallery

This exhibition seeks out the nonexistent memory of the children born after the pivotal events of the 1980s and 1990s as well as these children's place in a globalized culture. How does a generation of twenty-something view itself, born in the wake of the children of winners and losers, and freedom?

Eesti Laul 2017 finalé

Saku Arena, Tallinn / ETV live broadcast

This is the final concert of Eesti Laul 2017, the Estonian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. The tickets for the main show might be sold out, but there should be some tickets available for the final rehearsal that takes place prior to the concert. If that won't work, you can also watch the concert broadcast live on ETV, either on TV or online. We do not usually recommend watching TV, but this time we will make an exception.

Philly Joe's Jazz Club

In the framework of this unique European collaboration project, in addition to acoustic instruments, all musicians will also use electronic devices.
