An easy-going unpretentious person from Estonia, Mihkel has been a member of the organizing team of Intsikurmu Festival since 2013. Intsikurmu Festival is held in an open forest park in picturesque Southern Estonia, where the music, art and people together create a unique experience of culture and creativity. The two-day festival brings together different musicians and people from different corners of the world. Intsikurmu Festival is quite new, but ambitious. During the years, there have been about 250 artists on stage and over 25 000 music lovers participating.
Besides the Festival, Mihkel has a start-up music company (Kaabu Music). Kaabu’s moto is “It is Always about the Music”. Kaabu was founded so that all who have talent could be musicians, so that all who aspire could reach new heights, so that there would be music!
Mihkel was (August 2016 – August 2020) a board member of Estonian Music, an NGO that focuses on Estonian music export. From August 2018 – June 2020, he worked as a director of Tallinna Salme Culture Center.
