About us

Music Estonia was founded in 2014 by Estonian music companies. The organization aims to facilitate the growth and development of Estonian music industry and to promote Estonian music internationally.

Music Estonia’s mission is to facilitate the development of Estonian music industry into a professional, profitable, innovative and international sector that successfully creates and exports globally competitive services, products and trademarks and in the process creates new jobs.

Music Estonia aims to become a competence centre of the highest level that – while being fully connected to the international network of music industry and export organisations – represents the interests and responds to the needs of Estonian music companies both locally and internationally. Music Estonia’s vision for the future of the sector foresees the growth of Estonian music companies that have successfully developed contemporary innovative business models and therefore integrated themselves fully into the global digital music market. These companies in their own turn create new opportunities for Estonian artists, songwriters and composers to bring their art to global audiences and market in economically sustainable ways and thus create new value both in cultural and financial sense.
