ERR is making Eesti Laul bigger than ever next year! For the first time, the national final is being held in Saku Suurhallis, the same venue that host the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002.
Producer Mats Normet explains they are expanding because they are proud of Estonian music and everyone who has been watching the national final in Nordea Kontserdimajas (Nordea Concert Hall) knows what kind of excitement and electrical emotions can be expected. And now they are gonna try and create that atmosphere once again!
Tarmo Hõbe, CEO of Saku Suurhallis, is proud to have the national final take place in his venue, Estonia’s largest indoor arena and adds that he is sure it will be a great springboard for the further development of Estonian music.
To promote Eesti Laul, which has been in place since 2009, all of the previous winners have gathered for a promotional video:
The final there will take place on March 5 but the song submission closes on the 2nd of November already, to give the producers of the show more time to work with the artists and create the best show possible. Tickets for the live shows will go on sale the 10th of November.
