Artists from Estonia and beyond will converge on some of Tartu’s coolest venues this week to perform at Indiefest. Celebrating its 5th year in 2017, Indiefest presents the latest and hottest in alternative music, in live club events and outdoor concerts, from electro pop to grunge alt-rock and everything in between. Performers on the bill this year come from Latvia, Russia, Israel, Finland, Sweden and the US.
This year’s headliner is Estonian electro trio I Wear* Experiment. Their sweeping soundscapes are cinematic in feel with ethereal vocals and edgy beats and synth sounds. Their sound will be further enhanced at Indiefest with a string ensemble! I Wear* Experiment will perform on Saturday 20th May at Kalevi 13 in Tartu from 10.50pm.
Poland's hit ticket that will rock Tartu during the 5th Indiefest: Brodka with her song Granda
Another hit ticket on this year’s programme is Poland’s Brodka – 2004’s Polish Pop Idol winner and today one of the country’s best loved artists. Brodka has made the shift from classic pop as her career developed and today blends layers of orchestral sounds with traditional Polish folk music and somehow ends up with a unique grunge alt rock vibe all her own. She has released three albums since her Pop Idol win and will perform tracks from them all including her double platinum album Granda, released in 2010. Brodka will perform on Saturday 20th May at Kalevi 13 in Tartu from 9pm.
Tartu Indiefest will be held from the 18th to the 20th of May at different locations in Tartu, Estonia. You can read more about the event on the Tartu Indiefest website.
