Welcome to the XXVII ETHNO Estonia 2023 camp on 18th-31st July 2023!


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!


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!
