About us

Astrid Nõlvak


I am a folk musician, chief organizer and program manager of ‘Hiiu Folk’.

I live on Hiiumaa, a small, lovely island in Estonia, where I have been organizing the Hiiumaa folk music festival ‘Hiiu Folk’ for the last 16 years. The festival was born out of my love for folk music and Hiiumaa.

Hiiu Folk’ is a small and cosy festival, the core keywords of which are sincerity, authenticity, family and environmental friendliness.

Since 2007, our festival has become non-alcoholic – the only non-alcoholic festival in Estonia. We want mothers and fathers to be able to look at each other and their children with a clear and loving look and find sincere and pure joy in beautiful nature, great music and wonderful company.

Hiiu Folk’ is a major event of the short Estonian summer for many music and nature lovers, offering authentic experiences and bright memories. You are welcome to take part in this beautiful party!

See you at Kassari Swinginging Place!
