Estonian DJ NOËP to write the official anthem for Tallinn 2021
With less than 100 days until the European Athletics U20 Championships take place in Tallinn, Estonia from 15-18 July, the organisers have secured the services of one of the country's most renowned DJs who has been tasked with writing the official anthem for the championships.
NOËP, whose real name is Andres Kõpper, caught the attention of music lovers and industry professionals alike in 2015 with his debut track Move and has amassed 23 million streams on Spotify since then.
He said: "Writing an anthem for the European Athletics U20 Championships sounds very absorbing and challenging. I'm looking forward to working with it and I am grateful to be able to contribute to such an event!"
NOËP's live shows are as attention grabbing as his recorded music. Kõpper is a charismatic performer and has given memorable live performances around the world, including international festivals such as Flow, Positivus and Europavox.
The European Athletics U20 Championships will be returning to Tallinn one decade after the Estonian capital city last staged the biennial event. Winners of that championships included Dafne Schippers, Kevin Mayer, Pierre-Ambroise Bosse and Mariya Lasitskene, all of whom went on to win world titles on the senior stage.
