This was the second EBStival since 2018, when the festival took place as part of the EBS 30 programme.
This year's event aimed to bring everyone together before the beginning of the new academic year and honour the EBS community, i.e. the students, employees, alumni and partners. The day of EBStival was altogether eventful and unique. On the same day, Professor Meelis Kitsing was inaugurated as the new Rector of EBS. The festival also capped off Introweek, the orientation week for first-year students.
The mood at EBStival was jovial and the event was a happy reunion for students. Many popular artists took the festival stage, including graduate of EBS Mari-Anna Miller, EBS student Shira with the band Around the Sun, Eleryn, the band Traffic and NOËP. A performance was also given by the EBS Chamber Choir, which welcomes anyone who is part of the EBS family and interested in singing. The festival was hosted by actor Sander Rebane.
In addition to musical performances, the festival also had a fair, where people could learn more about what EBS has to offer: Master's studies, Bachelor's studies, EBS High School, EBS Executive Education, EBS Business Incubator, alumni relationships, student councils of the Tallinn and Helsinki branch and the EBS Chamber Choir.
EBS is pleased that so many people participated in the festival. "I'm really glad that around 500 people came to EBStival," said lead organiser of the festival Liisa Maide. "It's a unique event where everyone whose life EBS has been a part of can get together. I'm happy to see that people at EBS stick together and enjoy one another's company."
