A new week has arrived, bringing with it a new Nordic Gig Guide! This week we have exciting Nordic performers in the shape of a Norwegian punk rock band, a world renowned Icelandic performance artist and a Danish indie rock band named after a hotel. Need an explanation? Get all the info you need right here in the Nordic Gig Guide!
It’s not strictly a gig, but Iceland’s performance art pride Ragnar Kjartansson is bringing live music to his exhibition at the Barbican this Tuesday. The show will feature many talents performing and collaborating, and all of them are linked with his record label Bel-Air Glamour Records. You can experience artists like former Sigur Rós member Kjartan Sveinsson, Aaron and Bryce Dessner from The National and lots of incredible Icelandic talent. This is an event not to miss!
An Icelandic collaboration tour has been set up for Iceland to ‘take over’ Ireland this week! The shows around the island will feature Jófríður from Samaris, Pascal Pinon and GANGLY whose solo project is named JFDR, and more fantastic Reykjavik sourced music. Some of the shows will also feature the native Irish artist Talos as well!
More Nordic shows coming up in August…
