We have just what you need! It’s a guide to the best UK concerts played by Nordic acts. Are you up for exploring new music? Then this is the place to be!
Monday 13th – Hafdís Huld, Kitchen Garden Café, Birmingham
Previous GusGus member Hafdís Huld has been in the music game for a long time. Her successful solo career began with her debut album Dirty Paper Cup in 2006 and her folky singer/songwriter sound has only grown since and so has the appreciation for her music. Have you not yet discovered her talent, you have the opportunity to pop by her concert at the Kitchen Garden Café in Birmingham.

Tuesday 14th & Wednesday 15th – K-X-P, Scala, London
Supporting Wolf Parade on both nights of their sold-out set of shows at London’s Scala, K-X-P are not to be missed. Unfortunately tickets are gone already, but if you’re lucky enough to have one, make sure you catch K-X-P‘s set!
Tour 13th-16th – Yung, Leeds, Brighton, Shacklewell Arms & Rough Trade East, London
The dreamy Danish band Yung is still touring Europe with their debut album Youthful Dream. They played three UK shows last week and this week they are ready to take on another three. It’s going down in Leeds, Brighton and they have lined up two shows in London. Do you dare to miss this?
Wednesday 15th – John Grant, Royal Albert Hall, London
The adoptive Icelandander John Grant is to play a prestigious venue this week, as he is booked for the Royal Albert Hall in London. Head down to the show to enjoy his ironic, yet very interesting lyrics and dark and mellow tone this Wednesday.
