Estonian Song Festival (Est. Üldlaulupidu) is a national and national singing festival, where various choirs and brass bands take part. The festival is held every five years on the territory of the Tallinn Singing Field. The celebration is organized by a unit specially established for this purpose under the Ministry of Culture of Estonia. It is the object of the fund of masterpieces of the oral and intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO.

The first singing festival was held in 1869 in Tartu. The first seven holidays were held during the time when Estonia was part of the Russian Empire, and before the 6th singing holiday, they were held on different significant dates for the empire. Various Estonian dance and choral societies took on the organization of the holiday. The first five holidays were held in Tartu, then all the holidays began to be held in Tallinn.

Between the two world wars, the holiday was held 4 times. In 1923, during the celebration of the eighth time, the tradition began to be held every five years. Since 1928, the festival has been held on the Tallinn Singing Field. From the 8th to the 11th holiday, the organizer was the Estonian Singers Union. In 1943, due to World War II, the celebration was canceled. At the moment, this is the only case when the holiday was not held.
