Spacey open-air concert venue but not covered, so no chance to stay cozy in case of rain. If not sure about weather bring an umbrella and warm jacket with you

I've noticed that many people here have said that there's nothing to see here but they have missed something important. This place is a huge part of Estonian history in the long run. Go there and imagine the people singing there for their country and freedom. Then you will understand and see its beauty.

We came here as part of the tour for our day trip during our cruise. I am sure during a concert or live music this is the place to be. But on a weekday at 9 AM, just save the time and find other things to do. I am sure my opinion would change if some huge concert was in... More

Went there as part of a tour. All you really see is a large white open air concert shell. Look at the picture in the guidebook and then move on. Not worth going just to visit. If you have tickets to a festival that is entirely different as it would be a great place to hear music.

Great open air venue - well managed in terms of entrances etc. Downside is the walk back - 60,000 people could not get on a tram!

This unusual stadium was built we were told for the Estonian 'Singing Revolution' where people joined together to celebrate being Estonian every 5 years. The story is a moving one when you understand the history of the occupation. it is now a stadium which is used for all sorts of concerts. Previous reviewer have mentioned Robbie Williams which was just... More

Went to the Robbie Williams concert in August 2013 and had a blast. Great venue and the beer was good and cheap. Only problem is the toilets with they charge to use and you have to queue for ages. I thought I would see a cow or pig come out of the cubicles they were so disgusting and filthy. If... More

The story of the Song Festival Grounds and national pride are priceless! Enjoy the grounds, see the statue of the founder of the Song Festival Grounds, and imagine, if you can the choir shell filled to capacity!

This is where recent history was made, where almost half the Estonian people came together to stand up to the Soviets in "The Singing Revolution." It feels like standing on sacred ground to walk around the grounds, knowing what happened here.

The Song Festival grounds are supposed to hols over 75,000 people and the stage is supposed to hold 15,000. During the 1988 Singing Revolution the story goes that there were almost 300,000 people there. The grounds and stage do not appear impressive except for the scale on which the Russians built. The attraction is the story of the Revolution.
