EMW + L44

The first Estonian Music Week in 2018 was a joy for the organizers to put on and  it seems that the audience enjoyed themselves too, so much so that the decision was made to plan the next EMW already in 2019. 

EMW 2019 will take place November 14-17 in collaboration with a new IT conference Latitude44 (L44) to bring together two prominent IT countries, Canada and Estonia. By connecting our two sources of national pride, incredible music and the success story of e-Estonia, we will definitely find a new audience and more attention in the media. 

What are we offering this year? During the day there will be a conference program and in the evenings good Estonian and Canadian music. We will also open a new exhibit, which has been taking shape as we prepare for the festival. Come for the tech and stay for the music!

The focus for EMW 2019 is the connection between technology and music, electropop, ethno, and jazz. We are also offering Estonian performers the opportunity to perform with Canadian musicians, as we did last year. In addition to the EMW concerts, there will be parties and gatherings featuring Estonian and Canadian music, where the more courageous members of the audience can actively participate. Come for a concert and stay for a party!


 
 
 
 

What is EMW Culture Club?

EMWCC memberships for 2019 are now closed. Please join us again next year and be sure to check out EMW in November 2019!

Your membership to the EMWCC is a unique opportunity to become a promoter and ambassador of Estonian culture. You will help provide a small series of concerts in Ontario and Quebec for serious Estonian and non-Estonian music lovers in Canada; showcase the best Estonian contemporary musical culture, in a very wide array of genres more broadly and often in North America; guarantee a fair honorarium for the artists; provide professional marketing and promotion for artists to build exposure in North America; create space for new artistic collaborations between Estonian and Canadian artists and composers.

At our events there will be opportunities to mingle and enjoy good food and drinks and we hope to partner with and support local caterers breweries and wineries.

The purchase of a membership saves you money vs. buying single tickets to each concert.
