Due to travel restrictions currently in place, previously announced artists Roni Size from England, Mouse on Mars from Germany, and Iceage from Denmark will not be able to perform at Station Narva next week. The new headliners for Station Narva are Tommy Cash and NOËP.
Since over the past week, the number of new coronavirus infections has increased above the allowed norm in the United Kingdom, Denmark and Germany, musicians from these countries will no longer be able to enter Estonia without the obligation to stay in quarantine. Therefore, previously announced Roni Size from England, Mouse on Mars from Germany and Iceage from Denmark will not be able to perform at Station Narva on Wednesday, 26 August.
“The festival programme now includes artists from only those European countries, from which it is possible to travel without the obligation to stay in quarantine for two weeks,” says Roman Demchenko, the music programme manager for Station Narva. “Cultural events taking place in the coming week were not afforded the same opportunity to use negative tests as a way to avoid the quarantine requirement that large-scale sports events were given. However, none of the foreign artists has two spare weeks to spend in Estonia.”
The new headliners at Station Narva festival on 26 August will be the renowned Estonian artists Tommy Cash and NOËP.
The music and city culture festival Station Narva is returning for its third consecutive year to the easternmost Estonian city Narva on 26 and 27 August, with music, business networking, sightseeing and new discoveries across the urban space.

The cosy and bohemian Art Club Ro-Ro will see the Berlin-based Norwegian Bendik Giske, transmuting his clubbing experiences with the breath, steel and muscle, tri-lingual Estonian indie rock collective Levski, and the young pop-rock group Pale Alison, representing the host city Narva, At the dance stage in the former cotton factory’s boathouse, Manna, the new face on Estonian trap and hip-hop scene, will spread her silky lyrics and airy vocals.
