TALLINN - Estonia is set to host the world's first digital song festival, hoping to draw as many as 100,000 singers to the event.

Estonia, like neigboring Latvia and Lithuania, has a long tradition of holding song festivals as one of the premier traditional events, often attracting hundreds of thousands of participants. This year Estonia hopes to combine the tradition with its e-savy image.

"The idea might have sounded crazy, but I quickly got a plan to use digital means to make it happen," festival organiser and TV producer Artur Talvik told AFP.
