Annual music celebration G! Festval took place in the Faroese village of Syðrugöta over the weekend, where the likes of Iceland’s Agent Fresco, Danish outfit Phlake and Finland’s Steve N‘ Seagulls played alongside hometown heroes such as Eivør and Jógvan!


Ahead of the event, we caught up with the festival’s Managing Directior Sigvör Laksá for an interview to find out just what makes this festival so special, and over the course of the festival, we had two take-overs of our Nordic Playlist Instagram account! Local photographer Veingir (Ditte Mathilda Joensen) shared her festival experience on Thursday and Friday and on Saturday the one and only Eivør, one of the Faroes’ most beloved artists, shared her experiences of the event before performing on Saturday night.

Check out the Nordic Playlist Instagram account for the full galleries, and if you were at G! Festival, share your experiences with us using the hashtag #MyNordicPlaylist!
