Til 9th to 11th of September, a new three-day festival, called "Wabalinn Paide festival Kolmkõla" takes place In Paide. Organizers are Leho Rubis, Kaido Kirikmäe and Rainer Eidemiller. It is funded by Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
So far there has been lacking a comprehensive, contemporary music and other art forms presenting festival in Paide. Now this festival is scheduled to run and also to bring together other initiatives so far acted alone.
Among other things, this means that so far in February held "Kolmkõla" will now take place in September in an enlarged format. Venues are different importated places for Paide located in the heart of the city, including town hall, Vallitorn, cafe, Paide Restaurant’s rooftop and Paide Community Center (Tallinna 9/11), which is the center of the festival in its organizational sense.
The name "Wabalinn" derives from a project, carried by association Weissenstein, which essence is to shape the city of Paide more communal and efficient with cooperation by the initiative of the so-called free, public and private sector. The project is meant to support the same nonprofit activities as our festival. You can read more about the project at blogi.weissenstein.ee.
3kõla will cover Wabalinn projects as well as concerts, poetry evenings, exhibitions, film evenings and perfomances. The goal is to offer something interesting for citizens and visitors which at the same time will be carried by a single worldview and supports common goals.
