Welcome to the XXVI ETHNO Estonia 2022 camp on 19th July – 1st August 2022!


ETHNO is an international music camp for youngsters aged 16-30 years, where traditional music from different countries is learned by ear in workshops led by the participants themselves. Learning and arranging the tunes is led by artistic leaders. Ethno Estonia is one of the biggest and oldest ethnos in the world. Usually we have 5-6 artistic leaders and 60-70 participants of which half are locals. So double amount of joy is guaranteed! This year we will celebrate 25 years of Ethno in Estonia!!! 


Our camp takes place in a beautiful manor in a small village called Kõpu. It lasts for 14 days of which the last 4 we spend at Viljandi Folk Music Festival where we give 2-3 concerts and listen to many more. At the camp you can enjoy collective workshops, dance and bonfire nights, free stage concerts, road trips, special guests, creative tasks, etc. Whether you sing or play melody, harmony or percussion instrument  – you are welcome!


NB! Participants will be selected according to availability of places in different instrument groups and the level of playing skills. If you’ve been to ETHNO Estonia three times in a row, then others with less experience are given priority this time. However, you are very welcome to apply!
