The first song festival was held in Tartu from 18-20 June 1869. It opened in Toomeoru but mainly took place in the gardens of the Ressourc society opposite St Peter's Church, which enjoyed beautiful views over the town and the Emajogi River. The festival was attended by 46 choirs, involving almost 800 male singers and four brass bands. Almost 15,000 people attended the festival.
