Tallinn Night features the TOUR d'ÖÖ bike ride and a concert by Röövel Ööbik

Today, May 15th, the festivities for Tallinn Day commenced, marking 776 years since receiving Lübeck Rights. Celebrated for the 23rd time, this year introduces the inaugural Tallinn Night.

Tallinn Day events are spread over two days, with celebrations continuing on Saturday, May 18.

Natalie Mets, Advisor for Nightlife, points out that the city doesn't quiet down at night; it simply transforms. “Cities around the world are increasingly recognizing that vibrant urban life occurs not just during the day but also at night—Tallinn included. We invite everyone to join us as we cycle from Tondiraba Park in Lasnamäe through the city to Freedom Square to enjoy a concert by Röövel Ööbik, followed by participating in Museum Night,” Mets explained.

Tallinn Night kicks off with the popular cycling event, TOUR d'ÖÖ, now in its 74th iteration. Cyclists gather at Tondiraba Park at 19:30 and set off at 20:00. Participation is free. By respecting other riders, adhering to safety rules, and following the guidance of marshals in yellow vests, participants will cover 12 km to reach Freedom Square.

At 21:30, Röövel Ööbik will take the stage. This indie band, which began in the mid-1980s and has recently returned after a 15-year hiatus with their new album "Transcent," consists of Tõnu Pedaru (vocals), Raul Saaremets (drums), and Sten Šeripov (guitar). The concert will last 45 minutes.
