Estonia, 1975: the 18th Festival della Canzone (Üldlaulupidu) presso il “Campo del Canto” di Tallinn (Tallinna lauluväljak), an open–air auditorium built in 1959. In 1987, Estonians gathered here to sing patriotic hymns, in the so–called “Singing Revolution” that led to the overthrow of Soviet rule.
