Frequently asked questions

When is the festival taking place?

In 2021, Viljandi Folk Music Festival takes place on July 22-25.

Will my pass I bought for 2020 festival be valid on 2021?

Yes it will!  Just keep your pass – it will grant you entry to the 2021 festival. You won’t need a new ticket.

If I can't travel to Estonia this year what could I do with my pass?

We do understand that conditions and requirements this year might be complicated, especially for visitors coming from abroad. That is why you can forward your festival pass to the next year (2022) or refund. For both options you will need to fill in the application, which will be on our webpage from July 5th. You’ve got from July 5 till July 18, 2021 to fill in the form. 

What should I know about festival and COVID-19?

This year, our festival can only be attended by people who have vaccinated against COVID-19, had COVID-19 or tested negative for COVID-19. Read more about requirements for travelling to Estonia HERE.

On July 5th we will provide additional and more accurate information about testing options during our festival. 

I bought a youngster’s pass on 2020 but I’ll be 27 years old next year. Will my youngster’s pass be valid at the 2021 festival?

Yes, all youngster’s passes which were purchased for the 2020 festival will be valid at the 2021 festival even if the pass owner has passed the age limit or graduated in the meantime.

My child would’ve been applicable for free entry on 2020 but they’ll be 13 next year. Will my child be offered free entry at next year’s festival?

We’ll apply the same rule that we’ve always had - children under 12 (included) will be granted free entry to the festival. Children aged 13 and over will need a ticket. The best option for them is a youngster’s pass which is meant for young people aged 13-26 who are in education.
