The price of ESTO passes has changed as of March 1!


The month of March brings with it the spring and new prices for our festival passes. ESTO passes – gold, silver and bronze – now cost 50 euros more.

The price of the Super ESTO pass will remain the same (450 EUR). Discounts available for children up to now will remain valid as well.

The ESTO 2019 opening ceremony will be held on Friday, June 28 in Helsinki. The traditional church service held in Helsinki Cathedral will be followed by the opening concert “Bridge Across Time” at the Senate Square. Choirs and dancers with Estonian ties are anticipated from around the world.


The ESTO 2019 Opening Gala Party will take place at sea aboard the Tallink ship Silja Europa in the evening of the same day, June 28. Dinner and admission to the Opening Gala is included in gold and silver passes. Please note this major change as of March 1: participants in the Opening Gala will have to pay separately for a cabin should they wish to have one. The cabin is no longer included in the price of the pass.

ESTO 2019 or the XII Global Estonian Cultural Festival “Our Future” will bring the ESTO festival buzz to Finland for the first time. From there ESTO participants will sail to Tallinn aboard the “white ship” that used to symbolize the dream of a free Estonia. The festival will proceed to Tartu and then back to Tallinn, where the country will celebrate 150 years of Estonian song festivals. The exciting days of ESTO 2019 will last a whole week – from June 27 to July 3.

To have access to all events, we recommend purchasing an ESTO PASS. Those who purchase passes will receive information on how to book Tallinn-Helsinki transportation. Single tickets will be sold prior to the start of the festival if spots are available. Estravel is ESTO 2019’s partner in organizing the sale of passes.
