Station Narva will fill the city of Narva with music, art, new perspectives on urban space, and discussions about local topics and new business models.
The heart of this year’s festival is the Narva Museum in the historic 13th century Narva Castle, which will also open its doors for a “night at the museum” adventure. The festival’s music programme will unfold at the Narva Museum and Art Club Ro-Ro on 6 and 7 August, presenting 24 artists from Estonia, Russia, Finland, Iceland and the UK.
The headliners of the festival are British d’n’b pioneer Roni Size, featuring Dynamite MC, and the influential Icelandic electronic music group GusGus. The line-up also includes the Icelandic electronic music group Vök, Tatar-Russian sensation AIGEL, and beloved Estonians from Vaiko Eplik and Eliit to Sven Grünberg and Narva’s own rock legends AveNue.
The festival kicks off on Thursday, 5 August, with BAZAR public talks, city tours and the opening of the Station Narva urban art competition’s winning project “Street Library”.
On 6 August during the daytime, Business Day will take place at the creative incubator OBJEKT.
On 6 and 7 August, the daytime programme offers an adventure-filled tour to the suburban dacha district, a Narva-style breakfast, and free city stage gigs across the city, to be followed by the music programme on both nights at the Narva Museum and the beloved Art Club Ro-Ro on the riverside, where the festival’s afterparty on Saturday, 7 August, will feature a grandiose light show by the Estonian future-folk band OOPUS.
