THE PRACTICAL STUFF

COVID-19 and international travel
Estonian government currently allows up to 1000 people events in outside conditions and up to 600 people events inside. As Latitude59 takes place both outside and inside and we want ensure that everyone has plenty of space for social distancing, we’re only selling 500 tickets to the event so act quick. Although wearing a mask is not compulsory in Estonia at the moment, we urge you to wear a mask when inside Kultuurikatel. If you’re feeling even the slightest bit under the weather on the day, please stay home and see you next year at the full edition.

We’re looking forward to seeing as many of our international friends as possible at the special edition but please make sure you’ve checked the travel regulations that apply to you. Check the Estonian travel restrictions here and get in touch if you have any questions at all.
