Dear friends of the Birgitta Festival
In keeping with the decision made by the Government of Estonia on 8 July, the 2021 Birgitta Festival will be cancelled. Unfortunately, the global coronavirus pandemic has yet to recede, and the situation is regrettably deteriorating in Russia, the place of residence for several of this year’s festival’s artists and performers.
The safety and security of our audience is of prime importance to the festival organisers, which is why we understand the government's decision not to grant an exemption to artists from Russia.
We hope for your understanding and to see you in 2022!

Tickets purchased from sales points can be returned at all Piletilevi sales points, except Circle-K service stations and the Viru Keskus sales point.

PDF ticket holders will have their tickets automatically repurchased and repayments will be made to the ticket buyer's current account.

PLEASE NOTE! We are repurchasing tickets until 30 September 2021.
