A total of 522,000 tuned in to watch at least 15 minutes of the double-jubilee XXVII Song and XX Dance Festival "My Fatherland is My Love" ("Minu Arm" in Estonian) on ETV, ETV2 and the Russian-language ETV+ between Thursday, July 4 and Sunday, July 7.

Thousands more also listened to broadcasts of the festival on Vikerraadio, Klassikaraadio and the Russian-language Raadio 4, as well as watched and listened online in Estonia and around the world.

On Sunday morning, festival organizers also decided to cut off ticket sales to the second and final Song Festival concert that afternoon for safety and security reasons, capping total capacity at the Song Festival Grounds at 95,000.

The jubilee celebrated the 150th anniversary of the first Estonian Song Festival held in Tartu in 1869, as well as the 85th anniversary of the first Dance Festival held in 1934.
