KURESSAARE MARITIME FESTIVAL / inspired by the sea

The 21st Kuressaare Maritime Festival takes place on August 10-12th 2017 at Raiekivi säär and Kuressaare beach. The areas of the festival are the Fair, the Maritime area, Children’s Republic, food, ships and attractions. Concerts and other performances take place at the Maritime and Beach stages, in the Chamber of Ideas and at the Folk square. In addition to that, there are many other fun activities, games, etc. The official host of the event is Marek Sadam.

The festival will be opened in the evening of August 10th at the grand Maritime stage. The opening ceremony is followed by a lively concert by Swingers with Tanja Mihhailova, Birgit Sarrap and Pearu Paulus. The opening evening is free! As are the programs of the Beach stage (Marek Sadam, Toomas Anni, Lõõtsavägilased, etc), the Chamber of Ideas (Vahur Kersna, Igor Mang, Mallukas, etc) and the Folk square.

Tickets include the Maritime stage evening concerts on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, we have the opportunity to see the legendary Anne Veski, the energetic Daniel Levi and of course the timeless Terminaator. On Saturday, we hear the retro Regatt and one of the most promising male singers in Estonia Jüri Pootsmann. This will be followed by the grand closing ceremony and the highlight of the festival – the main act KERLI!!!

Kerli Kõiv: „The island of Saaremaa is one of my favorite places in Estonia. This is where every part of the forest and each wave of the sea is full of magic. And this is why I am thrilled to bring my fairy tale land to Kuressaare Maritime Festival. Each of my performances is unique and this time I will be looking for inspiration from the old Estonian sea mythology. See you in Kuressaare!“

Odd news about the fire of the Sun falling into a sacred lake spread quickly. It all happened on an island, an island far-far away. Where could it be? When Pytheas from Massalia arrived here 4th century BC, it was clear, this was the island he’d been looking for. He made it to Thule. (inspired by the works of Lennart Meri)

The magic of waves, the spirit of time, the inherited force. Saaremaa, Ultima Thule.
