XXVIII Viljandi Folk Music Festival: In harmony

The folk music festival that takes place in Viljandi Castle Hills and city centre every July is the ultimate expression of the unique way of thinking that started spreading in the beginning of the 1990s. It values tradition, heritage and local identity and tries to adapt the spiritual values that people have developed over hundreds and thousands of years to the contemporary way of life. The aim of all of it is to keep our traditions alive, strengthen our national character and invigorate our musical mother tongue.

Our youthful and happy festival guests are cheerful and caring towards their surroundings and themselves, and open to the opportunities of falling in love and delving deep into something. That's the spirit of the festival! Viljandi Folk Music Festival has become one of the largest of its kind in the Baltic and Nordic countries.

The festival consists of:

  • 4 days of folk music celebration
  • 7 stages
  • 800 musicians, 100 concerts
  • 25,000 visitors
