A host of Estonian Eurovision stars took the stage this past week, including this year’s entrant Tanja, to perform at the Estonian summer festival Õllesummer.

The four-day event started on Wednesday (July 9) and ended at the weekend, with the likes of Tanja (2014), Ott Lepland (2012), Getter Jaani (2011), Sandra Nurmsalu (2009) and Dave Benton (2001) all performing at the festival in the Estonian capital, Tallinn.

You can see a video of Ott Lepland performing his 2012 Eurovision Song Contest entry, Kuula, below.

This year at the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Tanja finished 12th in the first semi-final – meaning Estonia failed to reach the grand final for the first time in four years.

Estonia officially debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994 and have since won the contest on one occasion.

Their win came in 2001 when Tanel Padar, Dave Benton and 2XL won the contest in Copenhagen with their song Everybody.
