TALLINN MUSIC Week (TMW) has opened artiste applications for its 2020 edition, which will take place in the capital between 26 and 28 March.

The 12th edition will comprise a creative impact conference for around 1,000 industry professionals and a multi-venue new music festival for 20,000 attendees.

“We work with several curators and it gives us the opportunity to work with a broader range of genres and imaginations in putting the big programme puzzle together,” says programme curator Ingrid Kohtla.

“TMW is liberating for the post-everything artistes who might feel claustrophobic in the traditional industry compartments.

“Putting all manner of hyper-adventurous acts in the programme is partly defined by the interesting things happening on our own home turf, but also by the genuine need to fight all kind of misogyny and marginalisation within the industry.”

Artiste applications are open until 1 December, with the full line-up announced in February 2020.

Full festival and conference passes start from €225 ($247).
