GROM, the new city festival of alternative culture and music, will take place on 14 August in Kivila Park, Lasnamäe district of Tallinn. For one night, GROM will transform the green oasis of Kivila in the concrete jungle of Lasnamäe into a light filled explosion of sound and present the region’s top contemporary talent.
Within the GROM line-up, Tommy Cash will give his only concert in Tallinn this summer. On same stage you will also find Shortparis (Russia), whose last concert in Tallinn completely sold out, Truckfighters (Sweden), bringing their desert rock sound again to Estonia after too many years, the kraut rock band Gnoomes (Russia), local noise rock heroes Zahir and the industrial post-punk project AKLI (Lithuania).
The skate park stage will be as eclectic and full of raw power. These are the stars of local underground scene, top performers at sweaty shows and ringleaders of fresh club event series – Manna, Köster, Bible Club, Smoke Break, KEETAI ja White Gloss.
Exciting pre-party and afterparty with international line-up will soon be announced.
In addition to the music programme, the Kivila Park venue will offer various activities throughout the day – extreme sports competitions, board games, opportunities to get acquainted with local tastes, or just have a pleasant time in a green environment. This is a great opportunity to experience and be part of Lasnamäe life on a beautiful day in one of the largest parks in the city.
The strength of GROM lies in the desire to push the boundaries of the arts, organize challenging performances, stimulate collaboration and create a truly unique experience for everyone – both for the audience and for the performing artists. The festival is organized by a team of Estonian music professionals and enthusiasts, who share an endless passion for music and live performances.
The festival will be organized in accordance with the rules for public events aimed at preventing the spread or infection of the coronavirus, which will be in force during this period. A limited number of festival tickets are available at Ticketer.
«Tallinn will have a new festival in November called GROM MMXX, which has earned its place as one of the most brilliant looking alt-leaning festivals in Europe.»

GROM MMXX is like a bolt from the blue. Focus is on loud, tasteful, noisy, aggressive, sad, heavy and weird. It’s an experience that keeps the music alive within.

With the diverse and innovative music line up that GROM MMXX will present over the course of two days. Art curation will be provided by the creative collective ULM (Uue Loomingu Maja), their artistic vision and power will be a key ingredient to the feel of this unique event.
