Viljandi Folk Festival

Cop all the photos in the gallery

This weekend passed was the 3 day long annual Folk Festival or pärimusmuusika in Viljandi, right in the middle of Estonia. Its an awesome 3 day event where people camp out or get shelter with anyone they know who lives locally, drink lots of ciider and beer and get rained on while watching lots of funky folk music where every second band has an accordian player.

I had a great time but was still recovering from the nasty Georgian bug so I took it easy. The festival i a fantastic place to catch up with all your friends because EVERYONE goes atleast one of the days and come on, Estonia isnt that big to start with. The stages are all set amongst old castle ruins ontop of a hill looking down onto a big lake. Its festival action Estonian style and I love it.
