Tickets for the 2019 Song and Dance Festival, which takes place in Tallinn on 4-7 July, go on sale next Thursday, 10 January at 12:00 EET (5:00 EST).
Speaking to ERR on Thursday, Estonian Song and Dance Celebration Foundation communications manager Sten Weidebaum said that tickets will go on sale and all other pertinent information regarding the 2019 Song and Dance Festival, "My Fatherland is My Love," including ticket prices, will be published on 10 January.
According to Mr Weidebaum, seated tickets will be limited at both Kalev Stadium, where the Dance Festival will be held, and the Song Festival Grounds, and thus anyone interested in purchasing them is advised to do so as soon as possible. He confirmed, however, that no limitations have currently been set on general admission at the Song Festival Grounds.
"The grounds' occupancy will be monitored, of course, but it is not a matter of number of tickets, but rather the mass of people out on the grounds," he explained, noting that on the first day of the Song Festival, the parade including all festival performers will end at the Song Festival Grounds as well.
"Thus far, there has always been enough room for everyone at the Song Festival Grounds," he added.
The musical director of the XXVII Song Festival is Peeter Perens, while the artistic director of the XX Dance Festival is Vaike Rajaste.
This year marks the 150th anniversary of Estonia's first ever song festival, held in Tartu in 1869.
