WHO ARE WE?
Creation of a noted international festival with the most relevant musical trends and works of the world's strongest media artist’s teams.
World famous Djs and musicians, light and laser installations, full-scale video-mapping, art objects, workshops in a unique location – an environmentally friendly sandy quarry in the Estonian settlement of Rummu, near Tallinn.
When we first stepped upon the gravel of the former limestone quarry of Rummu, we couldn´t help but to compare the stark geology of the place to that of the moon. The moon is not only our satellite, it´s also the easiest body in the solar system to observe with the naked eye. We gaze upon it every cloudless night and it fills us with a sense of wonder and mystery. Indeed, people have wondered about the dark and light spots on the surface of the moon throughout history.
What caused these strange features? What is it made of? The moon’s surface is covered with dead volcanoes, impact craters, and lava flows, some visible even to the unaided stargazer. Like Rummu, it´s filled with scars of its past. And together at Moonland festival we are embarking on an adventure where the environment is both the stage and the protagonist. Moonland is set to inaugurate it´s very first edition at the historical Rummu quarry and former prison, not far from Estonia´s capital Tallin – the best preserved medieval city in Europe and one of its hidden treasures according to the prestigious Lonely Planet guide.

Lighting and sound systems will be taken to another level this summer as Moonland festival takes place in Estonia. This August brings festival lovers all over the world to Estonia to awe them with the first ever electronic music and state of the art and lighting festival – Moonland. Festival takes place on six stages where over thirty foreign performers are expected to participate. In addition, the best Estonian electronic music artists will be expected to perform. For the first time in Estonia the emphasis will be on world-class light show by a team of international specialists in leading-edge Multimedia Shows, VR, Light and Choreographic Performances, 3D Projection Mapping, Stage Designs and Interactive Projects.
The festival will be held in the beautiful Rummu quarry in between robust prison walls which is one of the Unesco World Heritage Sites. Visitors are invited to the festival from both Estonia and foreign countries. The organizers promise a ground breaking 3 day and night experience between and outside of prison walls.
The site is surrounded by lush nature in the country that is considered to have the cleanest air in the European Union, add to that castles and ancient Teutonic monasteries and you get the picture of what a magnificent setting for a festival this is.
Moonland as a concept speaks to us as a tribute to the arid landscape created by time and human strife. Conquered by the love of music and our fellow humankind.
