In 2018, a hot duo of heart breakers 2Cellos performed at the completely sold-out “Rock in Haapsalu”, who captivated the audience both by their exceptionally high-quality show and their looks. The other performers included Colours of Bubbles, Sibyl Vane, Ilves Sisters.
In 2017, the festival was kicked off by Paul Young, Gary Brooker with a symphony orchestra, Suzi Quatro and Bonnie Tyler. Estonian music was represented by Tõnis Mägi, Ivo Linna and Lea Dali Lion.
Haapsalu is a unique little town because next to the capital, it is almost the only place in Estonia where big rock music events have been organised already for at least 15 years. One of the reasons is definitely a good connection with Tallinn with its largest number of citizens in Estonia, but the fact that Haapsalu is a special, little and cute, romantic resort attracting people with its aura and extraordinary atmosphere is by no means less important … People like to visit Haapsalu.
The following larger rock events that have taken place in Haapsalu must definitely be regarded as a prelude to the rock party this year:
