Comments from the representatives of Narva, the festival performers and partners
Mayor of Narva Katri Raik:
“What city wouldn’t want a festival of national, or even international importance! Narva has that now. In its fourth year, you could feel that the locals had found Station Narva and accepted it as their own. It is very important that the festival has a strong local team and cooperates with local companies and organisations. That has helped Station Narva take root in a deep way. I very much appreciate Station Narva’s boldness, professionalism, and constantly working towards doing it even better the next time around. Persistence is the key!”
Executive Board member of the Narva Museum Maria Smorzhevskihh-Smirnova:
“Narva Museum has been host to the museum.”

For the Russian-Tatar duo AIGEL, playing at the Station Narva was the first post-pandemic show abroad. “Everyone was smiling and giving off such a positive charge. We really didn’t expect such a warm welcome, because we had no idea whether people knew our songs here or whether they would understand us. The reception was fantastic.”
