During the four concerts at the Estonian National Museum (ERM), spectators will be able to enjoy many of the most popular Eurovision songs of all time, performed by famous Estonian singers.

The concert will feature popular Estonia singers Koit Toome, Rolf Roosalu, Anna-Lea Haamer, and Kaarel Orumägi, as well as opera diva Elina Nechayeva, who in 2018 participated in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “La forza”. The event will be hosted by actor Veikko Täär.
